PARK RIDGE, N.J. -- Hertz and the European online travel site Opodo.com have teamed up to offer Opodo's customers Hertz car
rental rate quotes as soon as air travel reservations are confirmed.
At the time a flight reservation is confirmed, Opodo's European customers can access Hertz car rental rate quotes based on final destination and arrival date and time.
By clicking on the rate information, customers can automatically transfer rental details to Hertz.com and complete the booking process.
"The customer gets an almost instant rate quote
so they can efficiently complete their car rental arrangements, and Hertz gets
an effective, online mechanism to reach potential customers at a key point in
the travel planning process," said Brian J. Kennedy, executive vice President for marketing and sales.
