A new Hertz low-cost company launches in Europe
The Hertz Corporation will now be offering low cost car rentals in Europe through its newest standalone company, Simply Wheelz. The online car rental company debuted in Orlando last year in August and was such a success that Hertz decided to launch the concept in Europe. The service is now available to rental customers from the UK and Germany travelling to Alicante and Malaga in Spain.
Simply Wheelz is specifically designed to target online customers looking for low prices from recognized companies. The prices offered on the new Hertz website start from as low as £8 for rentals of a minimum of three days.
In addition to offering price comparison tools and substantial discounts, the Simply Wheelz website also has other features. Prices on the website, for example, include unlimited mileage, collision damage waiver, theft protection, an additional driver, and free emergency roadside assistance. In addition, travelers can opt for extras like satellite navigation, additional insurance or child seats.
The secure website makes picking up car rentals faster and smoother since a great deal of the work is done during the booking stage online.
Simply Wheelz offers rentals of the latest European models including Opel Corsa, Astra and Combo.
Michel Taride, President of Hertz Europe, said: "Hertz has developed Simply Wheelz as part of its ongoing growth strategy and to meet the growing demand of customers who want a bargain price for good quality car rental. The 'low-frills' offering from Simply Wheelz allows customers to reserve, rent and return cars simply, with a highly competitive cost compared to other discount car hire companies."
