According to Eoin MacNeill, vice president for the Asia-Pacific region at Hertz, the company is committed to meeting the increasing demand for car rentals, for both business travellers and tourists throughout Vietnam, and expect this partnership to strengthen its quality offering in the market.

Nim Vuon Phu, New City Rent A Car's chairman, added that customers will be able to take advantage of a wider vehicle offering and additional services. Furthermore, in light of Vietnam’s growing business statistics, services such as Hertz Chauffeur will help serve the business community, who need to get from point to point stress-free and easily.

Phu added that he has 40 cars now and will raise this number to 1,000 by the end of next year.

Both the business and leisure markets continue to grow in Vietnam. More than 130,000 new businesses started up in 2018, bringing the nationwide total to 700,000. Furthermore, the country is also expecting to welcome up to 20 million tourists by 2020, an increase of 33 per cent from 2018.
