Hertz Global Holdings Inc. announced that Hertz Europe Ltd. has launched Hertz Driver Services following a partnership agreement with Blacklane.

During this first stage of the service's international rollout, Hertz's customers in Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, Luxemburg, Netherlands, Spain, and the U.K. can book ground transportation to complement their car rental in more than 250 cities and 500 airports worldwide. Airport transfers, limousines, and chauffeur services offered by Hertz Driver Services are available to Hertz customers.

"Partnering with the global professional driver service provider Blacklane allows us to offer increasingly comprehensive transportation solutions, catering to our customers' specific travel needs at every stage of their journey,” said Michel Taride, group president, Hertz International. “Blacklane's consistent high standards are fully aligned with the elevated service our customers expect from Hertz around the world. We trust Hertz Driver Services powered by Blacklane will be the perfect solution for customers who need an airport transfer for the first and last legs of their trip, or simply choose not to drive and use limousine or chauffeur services at their destination."

"Business and leisure travelers trust Hertz around the world for its quality vehicles and high level of service,” said Jens Wohltorf, co-founder and CEO of Blacklane. “Blacklane will extend the Hertz brand promise for passengers who need a professional driver. Allowing customers to book rental cars and chauffeured transportation for the same trip simplifies travel planning and will help customers take the stress out of travel."

Hertz Driver Services powered by Blacklane provides driver services in Business Class, Business Van/SUV, and First Class vehicles, according to the company. On the day of their journey, customers will receive email and text alerts to provide the driver's contact information and confirm the arrival.
