Travelling for business


We all know that travelling for business does have its challenges, other than the stressful feeling that you get, knowing that you’re leaving your family and home behind to go on the road.

Hertz rent a car

There are so many things that are actually beyond your control, ranging from delayed flights and lack of sleep to safely navigating a new and perhaps unknown city. While some of these situations can be difficult to navigate through, choosing the right car service and finding the right accommodation can reduce your stress when you are travelling.

Finding the right rental car

Hertz Rent A Car

Always remember to choose a company that is reliable. The last thing you want is to arrive late or worse …to the wrong place. It’s hard to distinguish who is reliable and who’s not when choosing a company for the first time. A good tip when you have booked is to call and change some details. How was customer care? Were they accommodating? Was it easy for you to make these changes? Were you able to contact them at any time?

If you answered yes to all these questions that means that the company cares about your experience and will go the extra mile to ensure that you as their client is happy.

What about events and functions and year end parties? One detail that many events planners consider last is the transportation to and from the function.

Hertz Car Hire

Travelling executives love to know their transportation is covered, and you can plan for that by reserving chauffeur service for attendees. When it comes to your year end party, wouldn’t it be a lot less stressful knowing that you can celebrate with your colleagues and all of you can have a jolly good time, because no one has to drive – it has already been arranged by Hertz Rent A Car and their chauffeur service called We Drive You!

Bookings are to be made in advance and can be done by contacting their reservations centre on:

Whatever your rental transportation needs Hertz Rent A Car will be happy to accommodate you.
