The Hertz Corporation, a provider of general use car rentals, has signed an agreement with Costco in the UK, to bring short term Hertz 24/7 van rental to Costco's members.
The self-drive service operates at all 25 Costco warehouses in the UK, with hourly rentals starting from just £13 per hour, bookable from http://www.hertz247.com/costco. Costco's members can hire a Long Wheel Base Ford Transit Van from the warehouse car parks to drive their purchased items home immediately.
For Costco's members Hertz 24/7 represents a hassle-free self-delivery option. The price covers insurance, maintenance, road tax and VAT. Using the service is seamless; members simply sign up to Hertz 24/7 by using an instant enrolment pack available from the Costco warehouse, or by calling +44 207 365 4199. Future rentals may then be booked on-line or by using smartphone apps, and once on the road, the member has full access to the Hertz 24/7 Customer Care Centre, which can assist in case of any questions.
If a journey is taking longer than anticipated, the rental period can be extended simply by using a display pad fitted inside each vehicle. To register for Hertz 24/7 and hire a van, customers need to be aged 21 years and over, have a standard driving licence valid for the UK, and hold a Visa debit or credit card in their own name.
