Hertz Corporation Is the Official Transporter of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships

Wimbledon StationHertz is already known around the world for being a company that helps get people where they need to go. It is because of this that the Wimbledon Championships use Hertz as its official transport supplier. For the 20th straight year, Hertz is making sure that the Wimbledon tennis stars get to the matches on time.

To do this, Hertz said that it is providing more than 165 cars to not only players but also the staff who make the whole championships possible. Using these vehicles, the players and staff will travel nearly 250,000 miles on 17,000 journeys. All of this will take place over the two weeks that the championships will be held.

When talking about supplying cars for the Wimbledon Championships, the group president of Hertz International, Michael Taride, said that his company is excited to be celebrating its second decade of being the Official Transport Supplier of the Wimbledon Championships. He went on to say that he appreciates the hard-working staff members and drivers who have made it possible for Hertz to deliver this winning service to the Wimbledon players year after year. It is because of them that Hertz can make sure that the players and staff of the Wimbledon games have a pleasant and smooth journey between every match.

Since it is the 20th anniversary of Hertz providing top-of-the-line car rentals for Wimbledon tennis stars and staff members, the company is offering Winning Service Tips on the announcement boards at Wimbledon station. This will be done in relation to the Hertz Gold Plus Rewards program. Tennis fans who are waiting in line will now be able to put the tips to the test in a tennis serving target game that has been designed by Hertz. To participate in this service, fans just need to go into the tennis gallery that is located near the line. Here they can practice their kick, ace and slice serves. The whole time, they will be aiming at Hertz and Wimbledon-themed targets. The person who has the best servers and hits the most targets will win tickets for the men’s Wimbledon finals next year.

The general manager of Hertz UK, Neil Cunningham, said that it is a blast that Hertz gets to engage with fans in this kind of way. It will be fun to see how many people participate in the Winning Service Tips. Although Wimbledon gives tennis pros a chance to earn the gold cup, the Hertz loyalty program gives customers a chance for a gold car hire experience.

The cars that Hertz will be offering Wimbledon tennis stars and staff members include 15 Ford S-MAX and150 Ford Galaxy vehicles. The company will also be offering two executive coaches and two long wheel base vans for VIP transportation to the games.
