Hertz New Zealand has taken top honors in the Reader’s Digest Trusted Brands Car Rental Company category for 2016.

This is the second year that Hertz has been recognized in this annual survey.

Voted for by Kiwis, the Reader’s Digest Trusted Brands survey has been running in New Zealand for 16 years. Partnering with research agency Catalyst Research, this year’s survey was conducted in over 30 countries.

“It is a great honor to be recognized as the most trusted car rental company in the country by Readers Digest readers,” said Mark Righton, country manager of Hertz New Zealand. “At Hertz New Zealand, we are driven by the desire to put our customers at the heart of everything we do. This award is a real measure of success for us.”

“The award is also a reflection of the integrity of our team in New Zealand. We pride ourselves on our ability to always follow through and to deliver on our promises,” added Righton.

To celebrate the win and give thanks to those who voted, Hertz New Zealand will be taking part in a prize giveaway on the Reader’s Digest Trusted Brands website in September, according to the company. Consumers will have the chance to win a three-day car rental in a Hertz premium vehicle.
