Wheels Up adds Hertz electric vehicles to loyalty offering
Wheels Up has added Hertz to its list of lifestyle brands already available to members. They will be able to rent electric vehicles from more than 100 airports across the US to complete their last mile journeys.

US-based Wheels Up Experience is to give its members access to Hertz's electric vehicle offerings and new, premium benefits. They will have access to a variety of high end vehicles, including Tesla and Polestar models, from the largest rental fleet of electric vehicles in North America. The EV models are available for rent from Hertz at 111 private airports, with plans to expand to more than 500 private airports in the coming months. Members also receive complimentary President's Circle top tier status in the Hertz Gold Plus Rewards loyalty programme that gives access to an elevated selection of vehicles, guaranteed upgrades, dedicated customer support and more bespoke benefits.

Additional exclusive perks for Wheels Up members include discounts for Hertz Prestige and Dream Car Collection vehicles and delivery and pick up service for added convenience. A member's vehicle will be waiting when they step off their aircraft and can be left on the tarmac when they depart. Members will also have access to a dedicated Hertz private aviation specialist at the Wheels Up call centre who can assist with reservations, support all ground transportation needs, confirm the specific Hertz vehicle is in position prior to landing and more.

This partnership is the latest step by Wheels Up in its efforts to expand its product offerings and provide a seamless first to last mile travel solution for its members and customers. It complements Wheels Up's carbon offset programme, allowing members to reduce their carbon footprint on the ground and in the air.

"Our mission is to serve our members' needs throughout their entire travel experience, from the moment they leave their home to the moment they return," says chief marketing officer Lee Applbaum. "We're excited to partner with Hertz in providing best-in-class service and the most advanced electric vehicles on the market as part of our ongoing commitment to building a sustainable future."

"We're thrilled to offer Wheels Up members a premium level of service to elevate its travel experience with our Hertz Gold Plus Rewards elite President's Circle status and a variety of luxury vehicles including our newest EV models and other exclusive benefits," adds EVP sales, marketing and customer experience Laura Smith. "We know having a seamless experience from air to ground is important, and together we will ensure an exceptional travel journey."
