The fully remodelled location reflects a complete rethinking of the way cars are rented, with customers welcomed into a spacious, streamlined layout with a personalized, interactive service and the latest innovations in the car rental industry. The branch is conveniently located near the famous Champs Elysees on 27 Rue Saint-Ferdinand, 75017 Paris, France.

Michel Taride, Group President, Hertz International, commented: “Our aim is to wow the customer through all elements of their experience with us, from planning and booking through to pick up and return of their vehicle – all with an emphasis on flexibility, speed and value. Following the overwhelmingly positive customer feedback for our revamped flagship locations such as San Diego and Newark Airports in the U.S; Frankfurt Airport, Germany; and London Marble Arch in the UK, I am very confident that the remodelling of Hertz’s premier location in Paris will be equally celebrated.”

“It’s exciting to see the Hertz car rental revolution come back to its European birthplace – our Paris St Ferdinand location was the first city center branch that Hertz operated in Europe, back in 1956,” Taride added.

The newly remodelled location now features double the amount of space for customers, making the experience more relaxing. Dual-screen high-resolution monitors at the counters enable the Hertz service representative to display options to the customer, helping to expedite the car rental process. Large screens continuously feature rotating scenes of Paris and Hertz’s products.

The high-tech location also includes a ‘Recharge Zone’ for mobile phones and electronic devices. Complimentary Wi-Fi access is also available for customers. The ‘Discovery Zone’ section lets customers learn more about what’s on in Paris and the surrounding area via touch screens and colourful displays. Meanwhile, children can have fun with computer games and drawing software in the Kid’s Zone.

As always, customers have access to a wide selection of vehicles from the Hertz fleet, ranging from small practical cars, sedans and station wagons to the most stunning convertibles such as the breathtaking Mercedes SLS AMG, Aston Martin Vantage, Jaguar F-TYPE, Maserati GranTurismo and other marquees from the company’s Dream Collection. Other Hertz products available at the location include the state-of-the-art navigation system NeverLost®,  the company’s mobile Wi-Fi hotspot service, and the ability to rent iPads.

Hertz’s location at Paris Saint-Ferdinand has been built with environmentally friendly and recyclable materials. Aligned with Hertz’s global sustainability strategy “Living Journey,” the location recycles general and automotive wastes and features energy efficient lighting and equipment.

Hertz has been fully transforming flagship locations as well as updating other facilities across the world in an effort to streamline the rental experience. To date more than 400 Hertz locations have been updated around the globe, with over 200 renewed so far in Europe, Australia and South Africa.

In addition to the unveiled modernized rental facilities at Paris Saint-Ferdinand, Hertz remodelled its flagships locations at Frankfurt Airport and London Marble Arch in Europe as well as San Diego and Newark Airports in the US.
