Michel Taride, Group President, RAC International, Hertz Corporation, commented: "We view the Philippines as an important and growing source market for our international car rentals, especially as visitor exports are expected to increase 8.2% from 2012 to 2022 according to the World Travel and Tourism Council. With its highly established pedigree in global travel distribution, Discover the World Marketing Philippines is ideally positioned to help Hertz expand its long-term outbound growth strategy."

Hertz appointed Discover due to its proven track record in the travel industry, including airlines, hotels, cruises, and online travel companies. Discover will manage sales and customer support throughout Philippines and will use its strong presence in the Philippine travel industry to promote Hertz. 

Hertz outbound car rentals are available for bookings at all Global Distribution Systems (GDS) in the Philippines. Discover has already established a local reservations office and call center to service the travel trade and corporate market. The company will collaborate closely on both outbound and inbound opportunities with Hertz Philippines, which is operated by Hertz licensee Exclusive Cars International Holdings.

"Hertz is first major car rental company to appoint an outbound representative in the Philippines.  Our country continues to enjoy a vibrant outbound travel market for both leisure and business. We look forward to promoting Hertz to more than 2,000 travel agencies and various corporate clients, and collaborating with Hertz Philippines," added Francis E. Juico, Country Director, Discover the World Marketing Philippines.

One of the most popular destinations for Hertz leisure and business customers continues to be the United States, owing to the close historical partnership between the two countries as well as the presence of 3.4 million residents and citizens of Filipino descent. In addition to the promotion of Hertz rentals across the US, Discover will also support outbound rentals to Europe, Latin America, Middle East, Africa and Australasia.

To celebrate the new partnership Hertz has launched a discount of up to 25% off Hertz Prestige and Adrenaline Collections for customers residing in the Philippines. Vehicles from these Collections can be reserved by make and model. This discount offer is valid for vehicle pickups at participating Hertz locations in the USA for the Prestige and Adrenaline Collections and Australia, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, and United Kingdom for the Prestige Collection. In order to receive this offer, Promotion Code (PC) 191096 must be mentioned at time of reservation. The promotion runs until 30 August 2013, for car rentals picked up by 15 December 2013.
