Hertz has entered Sri Lanka through a licensee agreement signed with Andrews The Car Rental Company. It is also working with Discover the World Marketing to handle international car rental reservations, and has joined forces with SriLankan Airlines’ FlySmiLes frequent flyer program.

“Hertz has entered Sri Lanka with a three-pronged approach – we signed a license agreement with Andrews The Car Rental Company which is part of Andrews Travels, one of the oldest tour operators in the country; we appointed Discover the World Marketing Sri Lanka to handle outbound; and we are the exclusive car rental partner in SriLankan Airlines’ FlySmiLes frequent flyer program,” said Wong Soon Hwa, Hertz Vice President and General Manager, Asia and Japan “The integrated approach has been engineered to position Hertz to fully maximize the Sri Lankan market’s potential in leisure as well as corporate rentals.”

The Licensee Agreement with Andrews The Car Rental Company provides Andrews the right to operate the Hertz brand throughout Sri Lanka. Hertz Sri Lanka will initially be operating from Colombo the capital and gradually expand country-wide; driven by demand.

Self-drive, chauffeur drive and airport transfers on compact and midsize cars are available. A fleet of brand new Nissan vehicles is offered.

Driver-cum-Guide packages, which incorporate sightseeing opportunities and local area attractions, are also available. Chauffeur service is provided by highly experienced, professionally trained English-speaking drivers. Chauffeurs speak fluent English, are equipped with mobile phones and are licensed by the Sri Lanka Tourist Board.

As the exclusive car rental partner of SriLankan Airlines FlySmiLes frequent flyer program, Hertz offers program members discounted Hertz Affordable Rates when they rent with their FlySmiLes corporate discount number and offers members mileage with each qualified rental at participating locations worldwide.

To celebrate its entry into Sri Lanka, Hertz is offering SriLankan Airlines' FlySmiLes members triple miles for qualifying rentals at participating locations worldwide as well as contributing US$1 to the “Sinha Salsevana” Girls Orphanage for every domestic and international rental.

“Andrews, a pioneer in the Sri Lanka tourism industry, is delighted to be the latest addition to the Hertz global network. As Sri Lanka spears ahead in its nation building on the threshold of a new dawn, we see a new era in tourism. Hertz Sri Lanka will be the first choice brand for vehicle rental in Sri Lanka, delivering the best service and products that Hertz is known for by both corporate and leisure customers,” said Maahen Kariyawasan, Managing Director of Hertz Sri Lanka.
