LONDON, June 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: HTZ) has recently renewed its global partnership with Lufthansa, one of Europe's largest airlines. Launched in 2013, the agreement has since resulted in added convenience and exclusive benefits for Lufthansa.com passengers renting a Hertz vehicle at any location around the world.
Lufthansa.com customers will continue to enjoy attractive car rental offers from Hertz while accessing special discounts and new exclusive benefits. In addition, members of Lufthansa's frequent flyer program Miles & More will be able to earn a minimum of 500 miles on their Hertz rentals.
