Hertz to launch “Movin’ with music” online music store

The Hertz Corporation announces the launch of the Hertz Music Store. Part of Hertz’s Movin’ with Music program, the Hertz Music Store, which will be live in mid-August, allows Hertz Gold Plus Rewards members to acquire music from thousands of artists, old and new, online at To kick off the launch Hertz is offering 3 free song downloads per rental to Hertz Gold Plus Rewards members who rents a car through August 31, 2012.

“For Hertz customers, the connection between the open road and great music runs deep,” said Mark P. Frissora, Hertz Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “With the Hertz Music Store, loyal Hertz customers will have a new way to download, for free, the music they love, making their travel experiences even more enjoyable.”

Hertz Gold Plus Rewards members* can accumulate 3 free downloads per rental through August 31, 2012.  At the end of the month, members will receive an email detailing how to redeem the free songs. The Music Store is the second initiative in Hertz’ Movin’ with Music Program. Earlier this summer Hertz and LiveNation worked together for the “Best Seats Sweepstakes” and, later this year, Hertz plans to introduce Hertz Live Radio which will launch with 3 stations: The Merge – A top 40 station, Route66 – featuring classic rock, and Open Road – playing modern country music.

Operating one of the youngest and most diverse fleets in the industry, Hertz is committed to offering its customers the most technologically innovative products and services available that results in the fastest, easiest and most valued rental experience.  This includes Hertz ‘Carfirmations’, a mobile SMS text and email service that confirms a Gold member’s reservation and advises them of their car and location prior to arrival at the Hertz facility;  ‘Gold Choice’ which gives Gold members the power to keep the car they reserved or simply choose a different car from the Gold Choice area;  Counter By-Pass and e-Return which allows customers to bypass counter lines and go directly to their cars and then return their vehicles with the fastest car rental drop off that includes an email receipt within hours. These are all free services for Hertz Gold Plus Rewards members which is free to join. In addition, Hertz continues to expand the presence of its Interactive Kiosks that let customers rent a car, with or without a reservation, through a live, face-to-face video kiosk. Finally, Hertz pioneered vehicle specific reservation capabilities via its collections series and has the largest fleet of make and model reservable cars in the industry.
