Hertz UK has launched its rental service from Sofitel London Gatwick Hotel, becoming the only car rental company to have fleet available at the London Gatwick Airport's North Terminal.
Hertz customers landing at the North Terminal will no longer need to take the inter-terminal shuttle to the South Terminal to collect their vehicle, according to Hertz Global Holdings Inc.
"The opening of our new branch at Gatwick Airport's North Terminal represents an important milestone in our U.K. expansion,” said Rafael Girona, Vice President North Europe. “Hertz is now the only car rental provider to have vehicles as well as a desk at the North Terminal. This advantage means that Hertz customers do not need to travel between terminals to collect their car. With some of the most important European and U.S. airlines flying to and from the North Terminal, we trust our new branch will be welcomed by travelers who need to hit the road quickly."
The new location increases Hertz's presence at Gatwick Airport, as the company continues to serve customers from its existing branch at the South Terminal, according to Hertz. It’s also part of Hertz’s ongoing investment in the expansion of its U.K. network.
