Dubai, UAE, 1 July, 2004: Skywards members in Yemen can take advantage of 15 per cent discounts available from Hertz Yemen as the car rental company joins forces with Emirates Airline.
Valid during the months of July and August, the promotion also entitles Skywards members renting vehicles from Hertz to 500 Skywards Miles towards free flights as well as free car upgrades.
In addition, the offer gives Skywards members the chance to win one of two economy class tickets from Sana'a to a destination in Europe or the Middle East and is available from the car rental company's three branches in Sana'a, at Sana'a International Airport and in Aden.
“This promotion represents a wonderful opportunity for Skywards members to get the best vehicles at the best prices,” said Badr Abbas, Area Manager, Emirates Airline, Yemen.
“If you are not a Skywards member, this is a perfect moment for you to join in by simply registering with us when you hire your vehicle at any Hertz location in Yemen,” he said.
“Partnerships like this one are part of our overall marketing strategy, which aims to capitalise on the economic growth that Yemen has been experiencing for some time,” said Saleem Sheikh, General Manager of Universal Rent A Car, the Hertz international franchisee in Yemen which is part of Universal Group, one of the major players in Yemen's travel and tourism industry.
