Hertz opens new branch in Ras Al Khaimah
Dubai, April 1, 2014
Hertz, a leading car rental company, has opened a new car rental location in Ras Al Khaimah, aimed at capitalising on the increasing number of tourists to the emirate.
The new Hertz UAE branch is inside Al Hamra Mall in the Al Hamra Village, less than an hour’s drive from the Dubai International Airport.
Nigel Johnson, managing director of Hertz UAE, said: “This new Hertz branch in Ras Al Khaimah is in line with the surge in tourism to the area, as well as the renewed confidence in the UAE property market.
“With five hotels and Al Hamra Golf Club all within a five-minute walk from the new car rental location, the strategic location inside the Al Hamra Mall ensures that Hertz can be closer to the customer.”
“We have experienced significant growth in business in 2013, and opening up a location in one of the busiest malls in Ras Al Khaimah will ensure we can enhance our presence in 2014, both in the Northern Emirates and across the UAE,” said Johnson.
Steven Rice, CEO of Rash Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority, said: “Having a car rental outlet in a prime location such as Al Hamra Mall is great for promoting tourism in Ras Al Khaimah.”
“It will be extremely accessible for tourists and residents alike and will give people the opportunity to explore the region’s unique combination of desert, mountains and more than 64 kilometres of natural coastline,” he added. - TradeArabia News Service
