Hertz has become the Official Vehicle Hire Supplier of the Rugby League World Cup 2013 (RLWC2013), offering rugby league fans a 10% discount on Hertz car rentals during the one month global tournament.

As the Official Vehicle Hire Supplier, Hertz will provide a fleet of cars to carry players and officials between the tournaments matches and vans for moving equipment such as the players kits, etc.

Additionally, a specially branded Hertz van will transport the iconic Rugby League World Cup trophy as it visits clubs, schools and landmarks in all of RLWC2013s host communities in the months running up to the competition.

The RLWC2013 Hertz van was launched on Tuesday with the help of international players Lee Briers, Tyrone McCarthy, Richie Myler and Ben Westwood.

Michel Taride, President of Hertz International, said, Were hugely excited to be working in partnership with RLWC2013 as Official Vehicle Hire Supplier. Pairing with such a dynamic and well-respected international organization was a natural choice for us. As well as providing a fleet of cars and vans for players and officials, Hertz will be supplying a special trophy vehicle to make sure the all-important cup travels in style too.

RLWC2013 Commercial Manager, Rob Singleton, added, Were really pleased to have Hertz on board as the Official Vehicle Hire Supplier of RLWC2013. With 14 nations playing at 21 venues the vehicles that Hertz will provide us with will effectively keep the tournament running. Its great news too that the partnership starts right away with the specially-designed Trophy Tour vehicle hitting the road to take the Rugby League World Cup trophy across the UK.

To celebrate the new partnership, Hertz and RLWC2103 are offering ticket holders a 10% discount off basic car rental for all car groups booked in the UK before 30 November 2013 for hire during the fixtures, which run from 26 October to 30 November 2013.

The 10% discount applies to time and mileage (base rental charges) and all mandatory insurance and waivers that may be included in the base rental charge. Terms and conditions apply.

Returning to the UK for the first time since 2000, the Rugby League World Cup 2013 is hosted by England and Wales, and competing nations include Australia, France, Ireland, Italy, the USA and current champions, New Zealand.
