After the recent 11% increase in petrol prices
in the UAE, there is at least some good news at the pumps for car
rental users in the Emirates.
Hertz UAE has just launched a new
summer deal which, in addition to giving savings of up to 20% on
monthly rentals, offers customers a free tank of fuel and no refuelling or recharges of fuel when the vehicle is returned.
Making the offer even more attractive is the fact that
those taking it up are very likely to drive away in a new vehicle.
While one effect of the economic downturn on the car
rental business has been to slow down spending on fleet
modernisation, Hertz UAE has already purchased 1,500 new vehicles
to add to its fleet this year.
“We’ve made a big
investment to make sure that our customers continue to drive
around in new vehicles, and not the three to four-year-old cars
you find elsewhere,” said Nigel Johnson, General Manager of Hertz
UAE. “At the same time, we’re doing everything else
we can to give them the best value for money. The new summer
monthly rental rates bring significant savings. And following the
recent increase in fuel prices, we feel the offer of a free tank
of petrol, and the waiving of refuelling or recharges when a
vehicle is returned, will go down very well.”
of the The Al-Futtaim Group, Hertz UAE recently expanded its
network to 13 locations across the Emirates by opening an
exclusive service desk at Abu Dhabi International Airport.
