CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SpotHero, North America’s leading parking reservation service, has announced a partnership with Hertz, one of the world's most iconic and recognized car rental brands. SpotHero and Hertz are collaborating on a suite of mobility solutions to make parking easier for Hertz’s rental car customers, beginning with the ability to find, book and pay for off-street parking in more than 50 major cities across North America directly in the Hertz mobile app.
Parking can be challenging for rental car customers, as drivers find themselves in unfamiliar cities with stressful time constraints and limited visibility into the cost of parking. The partnership between SpotHero and Hertz alleviates this stress and uncertainty with a mobile parking solution that provides renters with end-to-end predictability and control. Beyond offering easy parking today, the two companies see additional future synergies in fleet management and connected car parking.
“We’re excited to partner with Hertz, who has 100 years of expertise in offering transportation solutions at scale to meet the evolving needs of their customers,” said Elan Mosbacher, SVP of Strategy and Operations at SpotHero. “We look forward to growing our collaboration to solve the parking piece of the transportation puzzle, as an added convenience for Hertz’s rental car customers.”
The mobile integration between SpotHero and Hertz is an exclusive partnership in the car rental industry, powered by the SDK in SpotHero’s HeroConnect parking mobility platform. By leveraging SpotHero’s SDK, Hertz can offer parking reservations directly in their native mobile app. This integration ensures a more seamless parking experience for drivers today, while future iterations will power the vehicles and fleets of tomorrow.
“Hertz is focused on innovation in mobility and fleet management, and parking is a critical component in that equation,” said Devon Browne of Hertz Mobility Strategic Partnerships and Innovation. “We’re thrilled to continue to grow our relationship with SpotHero, the leading provider of parking reservation services in North America, so that our customers can access convenient parking.”
