Hertz SNO Rates
For skiers throughout North America, Hertz is offering, through April 30, 2001, its weekly Hertz SNO Rates program. This year's SNO Rate program offers two products -- SNO Rates and SNOplus Rates -- that provide customers with the car rental options most applicable to one's winter holiday.
Hertz' weekly SNO Rates apply on all car classes, for a minimum rental of four days, and include a ski/snowboard rack and unlimited mileage. In addition to the SNO Rates benefits, the SNOplus Rates program offers the added convenience of a free one-day ski lift ticket and Loss Damage Waiver (LDW). Hertz SNO and SNOplus Rates are available for car rental pick-up at 30 Hertz ski locations throughout North America including Salt Lake City, UT.
When customers prepay, they receive even greater savings on weekly Hertz SNO and SNOplus Rates and their reservation for a minivan or four-wheel drive vehicle is guaranteed.
In addition to the extra security of Loss Damage Waiver (LDW) coverage for the week, Hertz SNOplus Rates include a free one-day ski lift ticket at participating ski area locations, including, in Utah, Deer Valley and Park City Mountain Resort. The customer is given a voucher for the one-day free ski lift ticket at time of rental pick-up, which must be surrendered at the lift ticket window at the participating ski resort.
With Hertz SNO and SNOplus Rates, no black out dates apply. However, rates may be higher during peak periods, including February 15 through March 24, 2001. Sample SNO Rates for a four-wheel drive (L-class) vehicle are $299 prepaid, off-peak and $339 non-prepaid, off-peak. Sample SNOplus Rates, including LDW and a one-day lift ticket, for a four-wheel drive (L-class) vehicle are $459 prepaid, off-peak and $489 non-prepaid, off peak. Higher rates may apply if cars are not returned to the renting location. All cars and rates are subject to car availability.
Travelers may book Hertz rentals through their travel agent or by calling Hertz directly at 800-654-SKII (7544) and asking for Rate Code (RQ Code) SNO for SNO Rates and Rate Code (RQ Code) SPLUS for SNOplus Rates. 24-Hour advance reservations are required for SNOplus Rate rentals and 7-day advance reservation is required for SNO Rate rentals. Travelers interested in non-prepaid SNO Rates may make reservations on-line at hertz.com. The Hertz Corporation operates from approximately 6,500 locations in more than 140 countries.
