HERTZ has decided to make SIRIUS XM Radio a complimentary, standard feature in every vehicle in its Prestige and HERTZ Fun Collections. It's also in more than 20 HERTZ standard vehicles including those from FORD, MERCURY, CHRYSLER, KIA, VOLVO, INFINITI, AUDI and more than 10 GM models, totaling over 55,000 cars.
With this expanded relationship, HERTZ is now the only car rental company to offer satellite radio -- including the "Best of Both" SIRIUS and XM -- and NeverLost as a standard part of the Prestige Collection.
"Hertz is excited to mark another milestone by being the only car rental company to offer both satellite radio and in-car navigation as part of its Prestige Collection," HERTZ COO MIKE SENACKERIB said. "Having an extensive line up of vehicles equipped with satellite radio enhances the car rental experience. HERTZ customers rely upon SIRIUS XM Radio to ensure their travels are enjoyable, knowing their favorite commercial-free music channels and radio personalities are easily and conveniently accessible."
"We are delighted to expand our relationship with HERTZ to now include SIRIUS XM, along with the 'Best of Both' SIRIUS and XM across the entire HERTZ Prestige Collection, HERTZ Fun Collection and now over 20 Hertz standard vehicles," SIRIUS XM RADIO VP DOUG PERGAMENT said. "Together, SIRIUS XM and Hertz have enhanced the rental experience by bringing our critically-acclaimed sports, news, talk, entertainment and commercial-free music to thousands of additional HERTZ customers."
