Cathay Pacific has signed a new partnership with Hertz Global, which sees the car rental company become the airline’s exclusive online car rental service provider.
As a result, Marco Polo Club members are eligible to receive complimentary car class upgrades.
As a result of the new partnership, Cathay Pacific passengers will receive an automatic five per cent discount on Hertz Rent A Car basic car rental, regardless of their destination of travel.
The new agreement marks an extension of the long-standing partnership between Hertz and Asia Miles.
Asia Miles members, who will continue to accumulate mileage through Hertz reservations (500 Asia Miles outside Asia; 250 Asia Miles within Asia), will receive price reductions of up to ten per cent on Hertz Rent A Car basic car rental.
Both Marco Polo Club and Asia Miles members can enjoy ten per cent discount on basic car rental and accumulate mileage through Hertz reservations.
In addition, Marco Polo Club Green and Silver members will receive a complimentary one car class upgrade, while Gold and Diamond members will be entitled to a two car class at no extra cost, subject to availability.
The Hertz Global partnership is the latest in Cathay Pacific’s customer-focused, non-flight product offerings, which are available exclusively online via the airline’s easy-to-use website, a popular one-stop-shop travel portal.
In addition to flight bookings, passengers can make online reservations at over 200,000 hotels and resorts worldwide.
Cathay Pacific Holidays managing director, Roberto Abbondio, said: “At Cathay Pacific, we care about our passengers’ experience at every stage of their journey – from the moment they visit our website to make their booking until they reach their destination and beyond.
“This exciting new partnership underlines our commitment to a ‘Life Well Travelled’.”
