Connect by Hertz has announced a new deal with the University of Reading that will allow its car club to provide service to 18,000 students. The car hire group will offer students at the University to hire eco-friendly Connect vehicles on an hourly basis. The vehicles will be Fiat 500 models.
The vehicles can be hired from the campus at the low cost of just £3.95 per hour and can be booked at any point during the day or night. As a bonus, the cheap discount rates also include roadside assistance, London congestion charge, cost of maintenance, cost of cleaning, and insurance. All students and staff will also enjoy the fact that the £50 annual membership fee will be waived.
The Fiat 500 has a low CO2 output at fewer than 120g released into the atmosphere every kilometre. It also comes equipped with an anti-pollution system and Start & Stop technology. Students will also enjoy the MP3 connectivity with a voice activated top of the shelf entertainment system.
