Hertz Receives Top Honours from Travel and Rental Industry Influencers

The Hertz Corporation has recently received top vehicle rental honours across Europe and the Middle East for its services, products and innovation from travel and fleet industry influencers, including the TripAdvisor community, Business Traveller Middle East and Fleet World.

Based on the opinions of TripAdvisor travellers community reviews, the company won the 2015 Travellers’ Choice for Car Rental in Italy, Spain and the UK. Additionally, Hertz was named for the second time as Best Car Rental Company by Business Traveller Middle East. In the UK Hertz received the award for Innovation in Car Rental in the 2015 Fleet World Honours and was named the Best Van Rental Company for 2015 by VansA2Z.

“Receiving these prominent accolades is a real honour for which we are extremely grateful,” said Michel Taride, Group President, Hertz RAC International. “The awards are a testament to our constant innovation and top-level products as well as to the profound dedication of our staff in the field to both the customers and the company.

“Our culture of service, modern fleet, exclusive vehicle collections as well as our first-in-class loyalty programme, Gold Plus Rewards, make a positive difference to travellers’ journeys. We will continue to work hard to excel in our services and offering, providing travellers with the easiest, fastest and most rewarding car rental experience.”

Hertz received the award for Innovation in Car Rental in the 2015 Fleet World Honours in a ceremony that took place in London. The judging panel praised Hertz for its 24/7 fleet management system for pool fleets, which has proven to drive customers’ costs down. The annual Honours recognise innovation, quality and sustainability within all the sectors related to the fleet industry.

Additionally, this month Hertz was named the 2015 Travellers’ Choice for Car Rental in Italy, Spain and the UK by the TripAdvisor community in those countries. This year 188,198 travellers worldwide selected the brands they prefer from a variety of providers in each of the Travel Favourites categories.

Business Traveller Middle East named Hertz the Best Car Rental Company in the Middle East at the 2015 Business Traveller Middle East Awards. The accolade, voted for independently by Business Traveller Middle East’s readers, recognises Hertz as setting the benchmark in providing premium car rental services for Middle East outbound business travellers. Hertz was previously recognised as the winner in the same category in 2013.

In the UK, Hertz was named Best Van Rental Company for 2015 by VansA2Z  in recognition of its “comprehensive and excellent all-round customer service, exceptional levels of innovation and on-going initiatives”. The company has recently opened two Van Supersites in the UK to meet the growing demand for flexible rental, totaling 20 locations across the country. Hertz Van Supersites gather van expertise and a varied fleet of vans.

Earlier in the year, Hertz also received the Swedish Business Travel Award for Best Car Rental in Sweden for the third time. The brand achieved the highest results in its category in the Business Travel Brands 2015 Survey conducted by the Swedish Business Travel Association (SBTA). Nearly 6,000 qualified decision makers and business travellers from Nordic companies participated in the survey.
