Sep 27, 2007
PARK RIDGE, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 09/27/2007 -- Hertz has expanded its successful "Hertz Hourly Rental" program to all of its Manhattan locations, placing the region's countless attractions -- from Stew Leonard's in Yonkers to the Rockaway beaches in Queens and all points in Manhattan -- within easier reach. To celebrate the expansion, the company is offering a special offer during the month of October -- rent a car for 2 hours, get the 3rd hour free.
With no fuel charge, no application fees and no fees for cancelling or changing a reservation, Hertz Hourly Rentals are truly the easiest way to rent a car on an hourly basis. As with all Hertz rentals, Hertz Hourly Rentals also include unlimited mileage and 24-hour Emergency Roadside Assistance. In addition to more locations, the newly expanded Hertz Hourly Rentals program also offers:
-- Sporty Mini Coopers (available in October), perfect for NYC driving and parking conditions -- Fuel-efficient, environmentally friendly Toyota Prius hybrid vehicles -- Vehicle return to any Manhattan location at no additional charge -- The ability to reserve a car on hertz.com (click on Deals by the Day in the Special Offers section)
"Due to the positive response at our first three Hourly Rental locations, we've expanded the program to all 12 of Hertz's Manhattan facilities," said Scott Gaines, Hertz Regional Vice President, New York. "Although New York boasts the world's largest mass transit system, a personal vehicle is simply the most convenient way to travel for many small errands and quick daytrips, even for lugging groceries. Hertz Hourly Rentals provide our customers with the most convenient access to a reliable rental vehicle without strings, commitment or additional fees. To give customers the opportunity to rent by the hour, we're offering the 3rd hour free after renting for 2 hours during the month of October."
Hertz Hourly Rental rates start as low as $12 per hour ($10.80 for AAA members), up to a maximum of seven hours, and include one-year complimentary membership in Hertz #1 Club Gold, Hertz's top-rated membership program (a $60 value). Numerous vehicle models are available ranging from compact to midsize sedans, midsize SUVs and Hertz's recently launched Green Collection vehicles, featuring fuel-efficient, environmentally friendly models. Add-on services such as EZ-Pass tag rentals, additional drivers, child seats, and other optional services are also available for an additional charge on Hertz Hourly Rentals. Hertz Hourly Rentals can be reserved on hertz.com or by calling 800-654-3131.
