Inter-city transfers between Dhaka and other main city points such as Chittagong and Cox’s Bazar are also available. Customers can choose from a fleet of air-conditioned sedans, sports utility vehicles, minivans and minibuses.

The two new Bangladesh locations are in Malibag and Gulshan, Dhaka. Malibag, located in downtown Dhaka, is close to the central business district as well as prestigious academic institutions. Gulshan is an affluent neighbourhood of Dhaka, where numerous local and multinational companies have their local headquarters located.

This move brings Hertz’s network in Asia to approximately 1,300 locations in 13 countries.

Hertz is certainly well-positioned to ride on this growth trend. With influx of foreign direct investments, there is increasing demand for top class car rental services. Hertz Bangladesh delivers quality products and services to meet the discerning needs of both corporate and leisure customers.”

Transportation is an essential part of any big establishment in Bangladesh, from the huge ready-made garment factories to the telecom industry, pharmaceuticals and world chain retailers. We are able to provide total mobility solutions for their employees, senior management and VIPs throughout the country.”
