Hertz, the second largest car-rental company in America, and one of the largest in the world, has a huge presence in the Isle of Man. The Isle of Man is a car lover’s paradise with a vast network of impeccably maintained roads along the Isle of Man TT race course, gorgeous landscapes and low traffic. With a Hertz rental car, you can enjoy the perks of driving in the Isle of Man without burning a hole in your pocket.
The Hertz corporation was founded in 1918 in Chicago as a car-rental service. The company has been around for almost a century and has a vast fleet of cars. For instance, the company bought 16,000 vehicles costing over $350M in eight weeks alone in the US in 2009, with similar measures taken in UK and Europe. Hertz maintains one of the largest and most diverse fleets of cars and vans in Isle of Man.
Cars and traffic situation on the Isle of Man
A total of 1.94 million cars were sold in UK in 2011. Isle of Man, with its 80,000 strong population, accounts for a very small portion of this huge figure. Yet, thousands of people descend upon the island each year, by air, by car, or by boat. According to figures released by the Isle of Man government, 649,049 driving 169,462 cars arrived on the island in 2010-11. Many of them come to the island for the TT races and spectacular driving opportunities. For these tourists, Hertz provides affordable car rental plans.
Some of the main benefits of Hertz car rentals are:
1. Large Fleet
Hertz maintains one of the largest fleet of cars in the Isle of Man. You have the option to choose from a wide variety of vehicles, from vans to convertibles. A large fleet also means that vehicles are available round the clock.
2. New Cars
Hertz prides itself on its new fleet of cars. Hertz periodically disposes off its older cars through its Hertz Car Sales business. Cars with fewer than 20,000 kilometers are often sold off to accommodate newer models. You can be sure your car will be new whenever you rent with Hertz.
3. Wide Network
Being one of the largest car rental companies in the world has its perks. You can rent a car in mainland UK, drive up to Heysham, take a ferry up to Douglas and drop the car in Isle of Man. The wide network means you’ll have multiple car drop-off points available throughout the island.
4. Low Price and Offers
As one of the largest car rental companies in UK, Hertz typically has some of the lowest prices in the market. Hertz also has many offers – such as 15 percent discount for renters above 23 years of age, daily hire by the hour, etc. Hertz also offers its “Best Rates Guarantee” to ensure that you get the cheapest possible price on car rentals in Isle of Man.
