Qatar Airways, Hertz offer car rentals online
Dubai, April 4, 2012
Qatar Airways, the national flag carrier, and Hertz, a leading global car rental company, have partnered to offer a facility to book Hertz rental vehicles through a new platform at qatarairways.com.
The online solution will offer full global rental options, as well as the ability to book Hertz rentals in either local or destination currency.
Michel Taride, president, Hertz International and executive vice president, Hertz Corporation, said: “We are delighted to partner with Qatar Airways to deliver Hertz global car rental services via the easily accessible online travel booking engine provided to their customers. We share Qatar Airways’ commitment to harness the latest innovations to improve speed, efficiency and simplicity in the travel process.”
Qatar Airways chief executive officer Akbar Al Baker said: “We are pleased to be offering our passengers an additional service option which provides ease, flexibility and convenience to book rental cars with Hertz. And our Privilege Club members have even more options for taking advantage of Hertz promotions for short breaks or holidays year-round.”
The new agreement is the result of a three-year partnership which reinforces the existing relationship between Hertz, the world’s most powerful car rental brand, and Qatar’s national carrier, which links 113 international destinations from its base in Doha, using a fleet of 106 aircraft.
Streamlining the travel process, passengers can now go to qatarairways.com to select and book car rentals from any of Hertz’s 8,500 locations in 150 countries, making their choice from a wide range of makes and types in a global fleet of more than 500,000 vehicles.
For each Hertz car rental booking made through the airline’s booking channels, members of the Qatar Airways loyalty programme, Privilege Club, will earn 500 Qmiles. General passengers and Privilege Club members will also benefit from exclusive year-round Hertz promotions when booking through the online channels. – TradeArabia News Service
