Hertz Europe extends mobile app to ME travellers
Dubai, July 2, 2011
Hertz Europe, a leading car rental firm, has launched three new free apps for Android, Nokia and Blackberry devices, extending its adoption of self service mobile technology.
The new additions, created by Hertz and leading app development agency Grapple Mobile, complement the car rental provider’s iPhone app and mobile website.
With this move, Middle East travellers heading for Europe this summer will find it easier to stay connected when booking Hertz car rentals for holiday road trips, said a Hertz official.
Michel Taride, president Hertz International and executive VP, Hertz Corporation, said: 'We strive to ensure that reserving with Hertz is as easy as possible for everyone.With the rise of smartphones, more and more people – both in business and pleasure – are booking and managing their rentals on mobile sites.'
Any customer with a smart-phone will now have full access to Hertz mobile services, via the relevant version of the app, as well as the mobile website providing travellers on-the-move with access to Hertz reservations around the clock.
“Our iPhone app has proven to be popular globally, and we’re really excited to be adding these new apps so that those using Android, Nokia and Blackberry handsets can access the same benefits and easy booking solutions on the move,' observed Taride.
'Being able to access your reservation from your mobile really puts Hertz in the pocket of the customer 24/7,' he added.-TradeArabia News Service
