  LONDON, July 4, 2013

- New vehicle rental confirmation email informs Hertz customers the car they
will drive, before they arrive

LONDON, July 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Hertz Corporation (NYSE:HTZ) , the
world's leading general use car rental brand, has announced Carfirmation, a
free email service to customers to confirm the exact rental vehicle they will
receive prior to collection. In addition, customers travelling to Hertz Gold
branches with counter-bypass facilities will also receive the specific parking
bay location for their vehicle so that they can head straight to their car and
go. The Carfirmation service is available to Hertz Gold Plus Rewards members
worldwide picking up a vehicle at major branches in the USA, UK, France,
Germany, Spain, Italy and Benelux.

Michel Taride, Group President, Hertz International, said: "The latest
addition to Hertz Gold Plus Rewards, the Carfirmation service confirms a Gold
customer's reserved vehicle and for many Gold branches, advises them of their
car location so they can skip the counter. As with all of our member benefits
– including loyalty points and preferential rates – Carfirmation has been
introduced to maintain the highest class in customer service, tailored on
direct feedback from a customer panel of over 650 people."

The service comes as an expansion of a similar programme available in the US,
where it has been highly praised by Hertz both business and leisure travellers
alike. The alert is generated as soon as a vehicle is assigned to the
reservation. Details included within the email are: vehicle model, colour and
registration number, reservation number and details of optional extras such as
Hertz NeverLost™ satellite navigation. At Hertz Gold locations, which operate
a counter-bypass option to members, customers can head straight to their
vehicle at the specified parking bay confirmed through the email.

To benefit from the service, Hertz customers simply need to select the
'Carfirmation service' option in their Gold Plus Rewards profile, and provide
a valid email address. Gold Plus Rewards is a free-to-join loyalty scheme from
Hertz, and members can sign up at: www.hertz.co.uk/rentacar/member/enrollment
.
