Hertz Global Holdings Inc. has announced that its Hertz, Thrifty, and Firefly brands will serve as Air France's exclusive car rental providers for four years, following the renewal of the 28-year partnership between Hertz and Air France–KLM Group.

In addition, the three car rental brands will also become the exclusive car rental providers of the Air France-KLM Group's regional airline HOP! until the end of 2020.

As part of the enhanced agreement, Air France passengers will receive up to 15% discount on Hertz basic car rental and up to a 10% discount on Thrifty and Firefly basic car rental, worldwide.

Air France passengers will also get access to a range of car rental vehicles from around the world through a newly launched Hertz, Thrifty, and Firefly website and via the Air France mobile website and app, according to Hertz.

The Hertz Corp.'s multi-brand presence on the Air France mobile website and app enables customers to book their flight and car rental at the same time.

"Hertz and Air France have enjoyed a successful partnership for the last 28 years, helping to drive the constant evolution in seamless 'fly drive' services to customers,” said Michel Taride, group president, Hertz International. “Today, we are able to offer innovative car rental solutions and specific products to all Air France customers, improving their overall travel experience. Our enhanced agreement with Air France and our new partnership with HOP! will result in added benefits tailored specially for both carriers’ passengers, who will also receive fantastic Hertz, Thrifty, and Firefly discounts and privileges."

"The signing of this exclusive agreement with The Hertz Corp. reaffirms the commitment of Air France and HOP! to their customers: offering a high-quality travel proposition,” said Patrick Alexandre, executive vice president, commercial, sales & alliances, Air France-KLM. “This travel proposition encompasses a number of complementary elements, accessible throughout our network. One of these key elements is the diversified car rental service we offer our customers through Hertz, Thrifty, and Firefly. With an extensive fleet and a truly global network, The Hertz Corp.'s brands are a great option for our customers, who will be able to continue to enjoy exclusive car rental products and discounts for another four years."
