‘Connect by Hertz’, the car sharing club, has been ditched by the car hire giant and is now replaced by ‘Hertz on Demand’ much the same, except that membership, which you have to have, is free. ‘Connect’ was first introduced in the US but as ‘Demand’ now will also operate in London, New York, Paris, Madrid and Berlin.
‘Hertz on Demand’ is a pay-as-you-go system, providing members with 24/7 access to vehicles strategically located. Whilst the normal range of Hertz vehicles is available it also offers in London two models of electric cars, the Nissan LEAF, and Mitsubishi i-MiEV.
Hertz has signed a three-year agreement with the UK home improvement and garden centre retailer, B&Q, to bring short-term van rental to customers looking for an alternative delivery option. The Hertz on Demand vans are available at 137 B&Q stores across the UK. Hertz also launched a partnership with Castorama in France in pilot stores, providing short-term van rental to Castorama customers. www.hertzondemand.com
