British Rowing has appointed Hertz UK as its Official Vehicle Hire Supplier, enabling its members to enjoy special car rental privileges and discounts when renting with Hertz globally. British Rowing will benefit from exclusive vehicle rental rates to transport teams and kit domestically and abroad, while British Rowing members will enjoy great car rental discounts throughout the year.
As part of the agreement, Hertz will also provide vehicle solutions to Start, British Rowing’s talent identification programme, which recruits and trains talented young athletes with no prior rowing experience, to help them become Olympic rowers. Graduates of the Start programme include double Olympic champions Heather Stanning, Helen Glover and Alex Gregory.
Additionally, in order to increase the visibility of the new partnership, Hertz has applied British Rowing livery to one of its vans, available to rent by the public.
Mark Wileman, Head of Marketing, Hertz UK, said: “We are very pleased that British Rowing has chosen to partner with us. The work that British Rowing does to champion and represent rowing at all levels is first class, and we are very pleased to support them. We look forward to providing clubs and members with their vehicle hire requirements with the professionalism and top service that they expect from a brand like Hertz.”
Kenny Baillie, British Rowing’s Director of Partnerships and Communications, said: “We’re excited to be working with Hertz as we believe this new partnership will be of great benefit to the rowing community across the country. Running a fleet of vehicles is often not practical for many grassroots clubs, but partnering with Hertz will help us overcome this. We are confident that this agreement will result in time and cost savings to the clubs, while giving our members a great discount and peace of mind when hiring vehicles on holidays with a brand they can trust.”
With 98 years of experience, a truly global network and a broad range of cars and vans, Hertz offers its partners and customers the convenience to rent the vehicle that better suits their needs from a local branch.
