With Lufthansa CarPool deal Hertz becomes #1 in global corporate car sharing sector

PARK RIDGE, NJ--March 25, 2013: The Hertz Corporation has announced that its global car sharing business Hertz On Demand is now serving as the operator of Lufthansa CarPool for the airline's employees, making Hertz the leading player in the corporate car sharing sector. Hertz will supply and maintain more than 1,000 vehicles equipped with Hertz On Demand car sharing technology as well as operate the CarPool booking system. A wide range of vehicles at attractively priced rates are available at convenient locations for the employees of Deutsche Lufthansa and the company's partner firms at the airports in Frankfurt, Munich and Hamburg. The agreement is to run for an initial period of three years.

Mark P. Frissora, Chairman and CEO of Hertz Corporation said: "Our innovative Hertz On Demand car share concept proved compelling to Lufthansa because it provides the ideal solution for the individual mobility needs of airline staff. We are proud to be cooperating with one of the world's leading airlines as well as becoming the number one player in the field of corporate car sharing."

Ralf Diederichs, Head of Travel Management & Mobility Services: "The Lufthansa Carpool powered by Hertz On Demand is an attractive offering for our employees. With its unique car sharing technology, wide range of vehicles and 24/7 service, Hertz On Demand provides us with the right answer for the mobility needs of our personnel."

Hertz On Demand offers Lufthansa and the airline's affiliate employees a "24/7" service all year round. The technology-equipped vehicles can be picked up and returned at any time. After signing up to the service, staff can make their car reservations via the internet, a mobile webpage, or by an iPhone app. The vehicles are unlocked using a Hertz RFID-enabled token that dispenses with the need for a key.

The new Lufthansa CarPool powered by Hertz on Demand offers registered users a wide choice of vehicles. The selection ranges from Fiat 500s and Ford Fiestas through to station wagons and SUVs. In addition, seven-seaters or transporters are available for either short- or long-term rental. One-way rentals between Lufthansa CarPool locations are possible and serve to increase vehicle flexibility.
