Hertz has launched the Hertz Family Selection at all major airports and downtown locations in the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain. The Opel Meriva is available in France, Germany, Italy and Spain, and the Vauxhall Meriva in the UK. To celebrate, Hertz is offering a new Meriva in a free prize draw at hertzoffers.com. The closing date is 10th October 2011 and the winner will be notified by 31st October 2011.
The range features the multi-purpose Meriva from Opel and sister brand Vauxhall as the hero car, with guaranteed availability once booked. The Family Selection also offers a wide choice of spacious and comfortable cars suitable for all family needs. Customers can book by phone, or online by choosing Family Selection at the Hire Car Type drop-down menu on hertz.co.uk.
Designed with families in mind, the Meriva offers an innovative and practical FlexDoors system for easier car entry; adjustable seating; and versatile, multi-level storage. The Meriva features Hertz’s unique make and model reservation guarantee, meaning customers can be assured that when they book the Meriva, it will be the model they drive away with. The Opel Meriva is available in France, Germany, Italy and Spain, and the Vauxhall Meriva in the UK.
Michel Taride, President of Hertz International, said: “The Family Selection offers practical, spacious and comfortable vehicles, so that our customers feel that their holidays have begun from the moment they begin their car journey. We are delighted to feature the Meriva from our longstanding partner Opel as the lead car for the Family Selection.”
Hertz has worked with Opel since its early days in Europe in the 1950s. Today, cars from Opel feature widely in the European fleets of Hertz Rent a Car and its car sharing business Hertz on Demand.
“Opel and our sister brand Vauxhall are delighted to serve as the partner to launch the hero car of the new Hertz Family Selection,” said Ian Hucker, Director of European Fleet for Opel. “We are confident that Hertz customers will be very impressed with the Meriva once they experience its flexible interior and innovative FlexDoors concept designed to make the journey easier.”
