The Hertz Corporation (NYSE: HTZ), the world’s largest general use airport car rental brand, today announced the launch of Hertz Dream Cars, a line of ultra-high-end performance vehicles that redefine the premium car rental experience. The new fleet and broad range of markets offer greater access to high performance luxury vehicles than ever before, while the VIP rental experience delivers white glove, personalized service to every renter.
“The launch of Hertz Dream Cars gives consumers the opportunity to experience luxury travel at its finest,” commented Mark P. Frissora, Hertz Chairman and CEO. “The experience starts with a choice at select rental locations of some of the finest vehicles built on the planet. Additionally, the Dream Cars experience extends from special reservation channels to being greeted by a Hertz representative at the airport terminal, to a rental vehicle in pristine condition. We ensure the travel experience with a Hertz Dream Car will be unforgettable.”
The Hertz Dream Car VIP rental experience begins with the personalized reservation service available on a dedicated microsite, www.HertzDreamCars.com and via 888.296.9124 although consumers can also reserve most Dream Cars via standard Hertz rental channels. Hertz will either personally meet customers at their airport terminal and give them a one-on-one orientation to the car, or deliver the car directly to the customer.

Aston Martin V8 Vantage
