Hertz has expanded its operations in Malaysia with the opening of four new branches; the airports of Johor, Kelantan, and Sabah and the downtown location of Perak.
Mohd Izazi Bin Haji Hashim, General Manager at Hertz Malaysia, said, “Malaysia is famous for its tropical forests, beaches, mountains, rich cultural heritage, and most recently, as an ideal location for driving. Continued geographical expansion is critical to our growth strategy as we see an increase in the number of inbound travellers to Malaysia who wish to take advantage of the nation’s comprehensive network of highways.”
The four new locations are at:
Senai International Airport (Johor): Considered to be the primary utility airport for business travellers to Johor, Senai is also the southern gateway to Malaysia;
Lumut Downtown (Perak): Located at the coastal town in the state of Perak, and situated approximately 84km from Ipoh, Lumut is the gateway to popular tourist destination Pangkor Island;
Sandakan Airport (Sabah): Perfect for animal enthusiasts who visit the famous Sepilok Orang Utan Rehabilitation Centre and Proboscis Monkey Sanctuary;
Sultan Ismail Petra Airport (Kelantan): The capital city of north western state of Kelantan, Kota Bahru, is widely accepted as the cradle of Malay culture and a popular destination for in-country tourism.
To celebrate its expansion, travellers are entitled to a 20% discount if they rent a car for three days or more before 30 June 2011. Terms and conditions apply.
Hertz Malaysia, managed by Hertz franchise partner, Sime Darby Rent A Car, now has one of the largest networks in the country – with 17 locations based at major airports and cities across the nation - and one of the biggest fleets of rental cars.
