Hertz launches mobile Wi-Fi service in Italy
Leading car rental company teams with Wind Mobile to offer high speed internet on-the-go for up to eight devices
Dubai, UAE, 21 November 2012: Hertz car rental customers from the Middle East travelling to Italy will be able to take advantage of a brand new mobile Wi-Fi service launched today, offering unprecedented convenience whilst driving on the Mediterranean country’s rustic roads.
Called Hertz Mobile Wi-Fi, the pocket size device is offered in collaboration with Wind Mobile, enabling Hertz customers to enjoy secure 24/7 internet connectivity anywhere in Italy. The new service follows the success of the Hertz Mobile Wi-Fi offering in the UK, Spain and the Canary Islands, Australia and New Zealand.
Thanks to the mobile network provided by Wind, Hertz customers can browse at high speed (up to 21 Mbps) with unlimited data traffic for downloading and uploading. Customers can connect up to eight devices at the same time, such as smartphones, tablets, notebooks, and mini game consoles.
They can also considerably reduce the cost of calls and texts thanks to some popular and free mobile apps available on Google Play and Apple stores, as well as get all the benefits of an “always on” internet connection during their holiday or business trip. Hertz Mobile Wi-Fi is easily rechargeable in the car by USB and also through a mobile charger provided at the time of rental.
The Hertz Mobile Wi-Fi service is currently available from the Hertz locations in Rome Fiumicino, Milan Malpensa, Bergamo Airport, Pisa Airport and Catania Airport. In the next few months, the device will also be available for rental in other Italian locations and airports.
For the first seven days, the unit rental is eight euros a day (plus VAT and airport taxes), for a maximum charge of 56 euros (plus VAT and airport taxes).
