Hertz connects

HERTZ CONNECTS, which claims to be the only global car sharing club, is to expand its operation to Berlin and Madrid.  Now firmly established in a number of cities across the United States, in Europe only London and Paris have hitherto been represented.  Essentially members pay a yearly (nominal) membership fee.  Users book a vehicle online or through a smartphone application and pay for the car on an hourly or daily rate.  Insurance and fuel costs are included in the price.  Vehicles are parked in garages and members are told where to pick up the car.  Drivers use an electronic card – received at the time of membership – to unlock the vehicle.  You can take the car anywhere, but have to bring it back to where it was picked up. www.hertz.com
