• Complimentary delivery/collection charge within 15 km radius of Hertz locations for rentals of three days and above.
In addition, cardholders can choose from Hertz’s extensive range of vehicles, including luxury and performance cars, and quality services.
Hertz offers self-driven cars and limousines with chauffeurs available for short to long term rentals in Bangkok, Phuket, Chiang Mai, Chiang
Rai, Pattaya, Samui, Krabi and Phang Nga.
