you think of women on the road, who do you think of?
Thelma and Louise, zooming off into the sunset? The typical
businesswoman living out of a suitcase and a rental car?
Or the hapless Mrs. Griswald from National Lampoon's stuck
in a car full of kids and chaos?
Hertz realizes that there really isn't a "typical"
woman traveler out there and that women often have different
needs and requests than their male counterparts on the
road. Approximately 40% of business travelers are women,
and they're also the primary decision makers when it comes
to renting a car for leisure travel.
Traveling on the road shouldn't be a stressful experience-it
should be a way to relax and enjoy the ride. If you're
a woman, keep in mind that there are plenty of ways to
make your trip a comfortable one:
in the dark or day. There are alternatives
to asking for directions late at night or having that
queasy feeling in your stomach after you've missed your
exit. Instead of hitting the panic button, rest assured
that you can rely on Hertz NeverLost, a navigational
system that lists thousands of destinations including
spas, hotels, airports and restaurants.
Child seat laws. You wanted to buy
your child the safest crib and stroller out there. And
you know that safety is critical in the car, too. Before
it was government mandated in 2002 for all car seats
to be equipped with the LATCH seat system, Hertz had
been using it in all of their cars. Up to 75% of child
safety seats are improperly installed, according to
AAA statistics. Hertz offers specially trained technicians
to install the child car seats-there are three types
of baby seats to fit children ranging from a few pounds
to 80 pounds.
your options. While most men are content with
wearing the same pair of shoes four days in a row, you
have enough high heels to put the whole cast of Sex
& The City to shame. Ladies lust for variety and
that goes for rental cars, too. Distinguish yourself
from the pack. In the mood for sporty and fast? Well,
rent a Mustang or a Thunderbird. Want to hit the road
like an A-lister? Rent a Jag. Thirsting for adventure?
Go for a Land Rover. You'll feel more comfortable in
a unique set of wheels to match your frame of mind.
and safety. So you've recently invested in
a video security system to safeguard your apartment
and are considering buying an attack dog to ward off
thieves. When you're out on the road, it's even more
important to protect yourself. Always make sure that
the rental car facility's parking lot is well lit and
that there is FREQUENT shuttle service to and from the
airport-even at off hours. The best question to ask
is, "How long will I have to wait for a shuttle
bus, if my plan lands at 12:30 on a Thursday night?"
At Hertz, shuttle buses run every five to ten minutes.
local. No need to leave the comfort of your
neighborhood in order to rent a car. Rent from a Hertz
Local Edition facility, which is often cheaper than
renting on-airport. To find the Hertz Local Edition
