Hertz UAE and the Ramada Hotel in Dubai joined forces today to offer Gulf travellers complimentary car hire when staying at the hotel, giving them the opportunity to explore the UAE independently.
Up until September 15, 2002, all guests booking at the Ramada in Dubai will be given the keys to a Daihatsu Sirion, provided by Hertz UAE for free.
More demanding business travellers can upgrade to a higher-class vehicle, with a Toyota Camry or a Honda Accord available for an additional Dh105 per day.
"Today's business and leisure travellers are increasingly looking for flexibility and independent travel solutions," said Bob Farrow, general manager of Hertz UAE, which is part of Al-Futtaim Group.
"While visitors to Dubai can choose from a range of comfortable taxi and bus services, nothing compares to the freedom of having a vehicle at your own disposal and free of charge," he said.
Besides free car rental the room rates, which start from Dh276 per person per night, also include free use of the hotel's recreational facilities, including the outdoor swimming pool and exercise room.
The hotel's business centre is conveniently located on the lobby level and offers secretarial assistance, translations and IDD telephone lines, while Internet and Reuters are also available.
