Hertz Global Holdings has launched Hertz, Dollar, and Thrifty in Colombo, the capital of Sri Lanka, following the signing of a multi-brand partnership agreement with local franchise partner Andrew The Car Rental Company, offering business travellers in the capital city a wider choice of transportation options for a seamless journey.
Customers can opt for a broad choice of modern, self-drive vehicles according to their car rental brand preference. The Sri Lanka rental options include short and long term, self-drive and chauffer-driven car rental solutions, as well as a wide selection of brand-new vehicles, including compact, wagon/state, luxury cars, SUV and minibusses.
“It is a pleasure to welcome Andrew The Car Rental Company to The Hertz Corporation as our multi-brand franchisee in Sri Lanka,” says Michel Taride, Group President, Hertz International. “Andrew’s local expertise and excellent customer service will help ensure the brands’ success in the country, where tourism is growing at a rapid rate. We continue to strengthen Hertz, Dollar and Thrifty operations in Asia, offering international travellers and locals alike high-quality car rental options suitable for different budgets and needs.”
The Hertz fleet caters for customers who desire to travel in premium comfort and style. Thrifty provides vehicles appealing to adventure seekers, while Dollar offers convenient, no-frills options. The Hertz chauffeur-drive service is provided by experienced and professionally-trained English-speaking drivers.
“We intend to expand to the Colombo international airport and another downtown location by early 2018,” Mahen Kariyawasan, managing director, Hertz, Dollar and Thrifty Sri Lanka. “Given that our country is experiencing booming tourism, growth in expatriate relocations, and an increase in international investments, we truly believe that this new agreement will be exciting and rewarding for our customers and employees.”
