SkyTeam, Hertz partnership drives Frequent Flyer benefits

October 17, 2018 Loyalty No Comments Email Email

SkyTeam has partnered with global car rental company, Hertz, becoming the first airline alliance to offer car hire benefits to Frequent Flyers plus the opportunity to earn miles when renting a vehicle.

Effective October 16, 2018, Frequent Flyers of all 20 member airlines can enjoy a variety of benefits on Hertz rentals while notching up miles towards air travel* when they hit the road.
Special rates apply whether cruising in a convertible along Australia’s Great Ocean Road or America’s iconic Route 66, taking a jeep down South Africa’s Garden Route, or simply needing a runabout. To take advantage, customers quote a special SkyTeam code when they make their Hertz reservation and provide their frequent flyer number to earn miles on qualifying rentals.
Hertz covers SkyTeam’s global network of 1,072 destinations with thousands of rental locations across North America, Europe, The Caribbean, Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand. Car hire reservations can be made online, by phone or through the Hertz app.
“Millions of SkyTeam customers hire cars at home or away and we are excited to take Frequent Flyer perks up a gear through our partnership with Hertz, one of the world’s leading car rental brands,” says Mauro Oretti, SkyTeam’s vice president sales and marketing. “Our aim at SkyTeam is to offer the best end-to-end travel experience for our customers. Extending loyalty benefits beyond the airport is a natural step as we continue to add value to our customers’ everyday traveling lives.”

Vincent Gillet, Vice President Marketing, Hertz International added: “We at Hertz are honored to offer car rental benefits to the 730 million customers travelling annually with the members of SkyTeam, one of the world’s leading airline alliances. Hertz already works more than half of the SkyTeam partner member airlines, so it was a natural move for us to extend our relationship to the full alliance. As a proud partner of SkyTeam and their first non-air affiliate, we look forward to providing a seamless fly-drive experience for our mutual customers.”
*Due to contractual reasons Frequent Flyer mileage accrual is not available to members of Alitalia/MilleMiglia or Aerolineas Argentinas/Aerolineas Plus.
