Hertz Family Collection Goes to Europe

Opel MerivaHertz, the leading general use car hire brand in the world, has launched a Family Collection in seven countries throughout Europe. The collection is specially-tailored to focus on 5-star safety, comfort, guaranteed availability and offers a free additional driver to the rental. The vehicles will be spacious, comfortable and ideal for family and friends to travel in.

Parents who hire a vehicle from the Family Collection will be able to share the burden of driving since an additional driver can be included in the rental for free. However, they will need to use the discount code 748082 when they make their booking. Additionally, Hertz will include a free child seat in bookings that are made until the end of this month. The vehicles will include the car hire company’s unique Make and Model Guarantee as well, which means the car booked will be the car customers get when they pick up their vehicle. All of the vehicles will come with a 5-star Euro NCAP safety rating too.

The Hertz Family Collection will feature the multipurpose Opel Meriva and Vauxhall Meriva through a long-time partnership with the vehicle maker and its sister company Vauxhall. The Meriva has a comfortable and spacious design that is ideal for families. It offers a practical and innovative FlexDoors system so that entry is easier, along with versatile milti-level storage and adjustable seating.

Opel Europe director of marketing operations Luca Patrignani says that the Meriva is the best car for the Family Collection at Hertz. With its comfortable, functional and flexible design, the vehicle perfectly adapts to every family’s needs. It features clever innovations and leading-class technology that help take the hassel out of journeys and make travelling more pleasant and easier.

Aside from the Meriva, customers will be able to pick a vehicle from a range of cars deemed family-friendly, including the Ford Galaxy, Mercedes B Class and Renault Scenic. However, the selection of cars available will depend on the country in which the customer is renting. Here is a list of which Family Collection vehicles will be available in which country so far:

  • United Kingdom – Vauxhall Meriva, Ford S-Max and Ford Galaxy
  • Netherlands – Renault Grand Scenic
  • Belgium – Opel Meriva
  • Germany – Opel Meriva
  • Spain – Opel Meriva and Ford S-Max

Hertz International president and Hertz Corporation executive vice president Michel Taride says that they understand at the company that consumers need a range of mobility solutions to meet their needs. With a focus on guaranteed availability, comfort and safety, the Hertz Family Collection is the best example of the group meeting these needs. They are excited to launch a solution dedicated to families to make travelling more enjoyable and easier so they can focus on their holidays. The collection will offer everything families could need to make their journeys as stress-free and seamless as possible, he added.
