Special combined airfare and car rental rates on offer to more than 21 top US, European, Australasian destinations

Online PR News – 08-July-2013 – UAE – Dubai, UAE, 8 July, 2013: Scorching UAE summer travel deals have just become hotter as Hertz and Emirates team-up to offer UAE-based customers exclusive Fly & Drive packages to some of the most sought after overseas holiday destinations.

The special offer means Emirates Business Class and Economy Class passengers can take advantage of combined air-fare and car rental packages to any one of more than 21 destinations in Europe, UK, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.

The combined flight and car rental packages are for three or seven day periods, and are available with immediate effect for all bookings and travel until 31 August 2013.

Elyes Mrad, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Hertz International, said: “The Hertz and Emirates Fly & Drive packages offer a plethora of choice for our UAE-based travellers, whether they are looking to unravel the many wonders of Melbourne, Australia, or experience the iconic USA road trip between Los Angeles and Las Vegas.”

“This is the first time Hertz and Emirates have offered such an exclusive promotion to our customers. The combined airfare and car rental rates are very competitive for what is a peak travel period during hotter summer months when many UAE residents look to escape the heat.”

UAE customers looking to avail of the Hertz and Emirates Fly & Drive package can call the Hertz International Sales Office, UAE on +971 43166268, or email reservations@hertzinternational.ae. The special offer can also be booked via any travel agent in the UAE.

The Fly & Drive package will likely give another significant boost to the constant growth of Hertz outbound car rentals from the UAE to popular US and European destinations.

Last year, outbound growth for Hertz car rentals from the UAE was 28 per cent year-on-year, with the majority of customers choosing to travel to the USA. Other countries on the top-ten list of outbound destinations for Hertz UAE customers were the UK, South Africa, France, Germany, Italy, Australia, Spain, and Switzerland.
