- Three-year agreement rewards Royal Plus members with air miles, special deals, best available Hertz rates; general customers enjoy online booking boost
LONDON, Aug. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Hertz Corporation (NYSE: HTZ), has entered into a new partnership with Royal Jordanian to provide a broad range of worldwide car rental benefits and preferential rates to members of the airline's frequent flyer program, Royal Plus. The new agreement is also good news for all other Royal Jordanian passengers who are now able to enjoy best available rates when booking car rentals at over 8,500 Hertz locations worldwide via the car rental booking tab at rj.com.
Michel Taride, President Hertz International and Executive Vice President Hertz Corporation, said: "We are very happy to have established a partnership with Royal Jordanian, and view this as an opportunity to build a lasting working relationship based on strong business synergies. We are both committed to ensuring that our customers benefit from the latest innovations, developments and enhancements in travel service, comfort and ease of access. Hertz looks forward to providing Royal Plus members and other Royal Jordanian passengers with many attractive car rental offers, as well as great service around the world."
Royal Jordanian President/CEO Amer Hadidi added: "We are pleased to work with Hertz, a worldwide leading car rental brand. Through our partnership with Hertz, we enhance the passenger's travel experience by delivering more benefits. Our vision is to expand our partners' network and thus reward our loyal customers with generous, non-airline services. We understand that our customers look for further privileges, therefore we are working on new partnerships that go beyond earning air miles to include many other comprehensive services, thus meeting the demands of our passengers and boosting their satisfaction."
As a result of the new three-year agreement, Royal Plus members can immediately benefit from preferential rates on car rentals at Hertz locations across the airline's international network of 59 destinations, while earning 500 Royal Plus miles for each booking. This doubles up to 1,000 Royal Plus miles for those booking cars from the Hertz Prestige Collection which includes luxury brands such as Mercedes, BMW and Porsche, and guarantees make and model selection.
Royal Plus members can take advantage of exclusive promotions and offers through a new dual branded Hertzlink booking platform which can be accessed from the airline's website and will receive instant confirmation and guarantee of booking.
The global car rental benefits created by the partnership with Royal Jordanian will be equally beneficial for business travellers needing their own transport for meetings and sightseeing, and for leisure travellers choosing a Hertz rent-a-car to embark on holiday road trips.
In both cases, car rentals are made easy by the presence of helpful staff at Hertz locations at airports and cities across the Royal Jordanian network.
Hertz is the world's largest general use car rental company, operating from over 8,500 corporate locations in 150 countries worldwide. Hertz is in its 93rd year of delivering quality car rental solutions to leisure and corporate customers. Product and service innovations such as Hertz #1 Club Gold, Worldwide Online Check-in, specially designed NeverLost® satellite navigation systems, and unique cars offered through the company's Prestige, Family, Fun/Adrenaline and Green Collections, set Hertz apart from the competition.
