Hertz International and Air France are now offering Air France passengers Hertz DriveU, the new transfer service with a private driver, at more than 300 international airports across 70 countries.
Air France customers – and Flying Blue members travelling onboard partner airlines' flights – can pre-book Hertz DriveU from airfrance.hertzdriveu.com up to three hours before the transfer. They will receive an email confirming the booking and then a text message with the driver's full details, including contact numbers, pick-up location, and vehicle information.
Members of the Flying Blue loyalty program using Hertz DriveU will earn 3 miles per dollar, euro, or pound spent.
Hertz DriveU vehicles are grouped under standard, premium, luxury, green, and van categories.
For airport pickups, a Hertz DriveU driver will be waiting at arrivals up to 90 minutes, depending on the vehicle's category, at no extra cost. As part of the service, the customer's flight is tracked to make sure that the driver is at the airport when the customer arrives, even if there has been a last-minute change.
Additionally, customers can cancel the service for free up to one hour before the booked pickup time.
"Hertz, which pioneered 'Fly/Drive' in 1932, and Air France have been offering passengers a seamless union of top air and ground transportation for more than 30 years,” said Vincent Gillet, vice president of marketing, Hertz International. “Hertz DriveU is yet another innovative addition to the unique selection of Hertz products and services that Air France passengers can easily access from the airline's website before, during, or after the reservation of their flight."
Air France customers travelling in La Première, the company's most exclusive cabin, can enjoy complimentary Hertz DriveU transfers with a private driver at Paris-Charles de Gaulle International Airport. At the airport, they will be greeted by a porter who will accompany them to the La Première Lounge.
"Our aim is to provide our customers with a trip that is as stress-free as possible,” said Soline de Montrémy, SVP global sales and commercial partnerships at Air France. “By offering the new transfer service with private driver, our customers can relax for the rest of their trip, as they know someone is waiting for them. I am delighted with Hertz DriveU, which allows us to offer a high-quality customer experience, both on the ground and onboard."
