The Hertz Corporation has teamed up with CLEAR to make travel faster and more efficient for busy travellers. Under the deal, car hire customers will be awarded a free 60-day membership trial with CLEAR and the opportunity to join other travellers at a discount.
CLEAR is a company that uses biometric details to get travellers through airport security faster. It uses the technology to identify members so they can get through security in an average of five minutes or faster. This basically eliminates lines and transforms the travel experience. Members are able to save time and stress by using dedicated lanes that permit them to be identified in only seconds with their unique iris or fingerprint. The company’s secure technology platform provides certainty of speed and the best service for members, as well as enhances airport security.
CLEAR currently operates at international airports in Orlando, Florida; Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas; Denver, Colorado; and San Francisco, California. Soon it expects to open services in New York at Westchester County Airport. The company also has a growing member base of more than 225,000 people across the US and is expanding to bring its secure biometric technology to more airports.
Travellers can enrol in its programme easily and quickly online. After a Hertz customer becomes a member, they will have unlimited access to this growing airport network. Plus, CLEAR members will be able to get discounts on many Hertz rentals, including weekend, promotional and international rates.
Hertz chairman and chief executive Mark P. Frissora says that they are dedicated to making car hire easy and fast. Teaming up with CLEAR expands their commitment to airports, allowing their customers to experience a faster security process. Together, their services will enable customers to travel with the certainty of speed that they appreciate on-the-go.
CLEAR director of business development and strategy Effie Epstein says that they are thrilled to team up with Hertz to offer their members and car rental customers benefits that help ensure their trips are stress-free from door-to-door. Both companies are committed to transforming the travel experience. Together, they can bring more personal customer service and speed to travellers throughout the US.
Hertz is the biggest airport general use car hire operator in the world, with about 8,800 corporate and franchise locations across 150 countries. It’s the leading airport brand in the US and at 111 major hubs in Europe. Hertz operates one of the youngest and most diverse fleets among its rivals and is committed to finding and introducing the most advanced products and services possible.
Incorporating innovative technology – like that from CLEAR – allows for the easiest, quickest and most valued car hire experience for its customers. However, Hertz’s similar initiatives include Gold Choice, Carfirmations, and Counter By-Pass and e-Return. These services are free for Gold Plus Rewards members. The company also continues to increase the presence of its ExpressRent Interactive Kiosks.
