Stuck in the UK? Hertz have heaps of cars they need to get home, they're looking for people to drive them home, you pay £1 and have 48 hours to get the car home, great if you love to drive and need to go that way... pronto.

"We have some cars that need to get home. And theyre going at just £1 for each one-way rental. Plus youll not be charged for an additional driver and if youre between 21 and 25, weve also waived the fees for young drivers. Rates exclude petrol, toll charges, congestion charges, fines for traffic and other such offences and non-waivable excess."

For a list of cars in the UK and the country they need to be returned to see:

Edit: actually it probably isn't that hot if you have to pay for a ferry or train crossing, but they also have cars in other countries that need to be moved around europe. Worth a look I guess :)

Excellent!

Interesting idea, don't think there will ever be another opportuntity to get a 48hr EU rental for just £1! Some OK cars on the list too, Golf MK6 and a few Mercs. I'd go for it if I had the time.

Jesus!... Heathrow to Italy in a PUNTO GR1.2 !!! - no ta ;-)

but you could come back in a XC70! not too bad ;)

Yes but... I'd quite happily take the "AVANTGARD 2.0CDI" (will be a Merc C/E Class) over to France that they have sitting in Heathow. Must be costing them quite a bit given the large mileage these cars will suffer.

Sounds like a fantastic idea
#7
Bargaintastic!
If you're open to suggestion, this could be brilliant!

I often go to France on business and have in the past have thought about driving down to Germany or Italy. Book the flight back right and I'd be winning!

You wouldn't even need to do that either, they have cars in the continent that need driving back to the UK too.

Ferry can be quite expensive though
#10
Not many people want/need a one way trip
#11
I think this is excellent. There's so much you could do with this - basically, you could tour around from country to country moving their cars around, then come back to the UK in one that needs to come back here. You can always find cheap ferry deals to go with this.
#12
great if you need to go to Europe lol
#13
great idea for a euro trip :)
#14
A friend of mine actually took up a similar offer a couple of years ago with Europcar. Just remember that by the time you have paid for a ferry, petrol and any tolls its not exactly cheap! (Can be cheaper to fly) and also remember that you are liable for any insurance excess. In his case they alleged some paint damage at the bottom of the bumper (about 1"x2") and wanted to charge him £400 excess!! In the end he 'got away' with only a £200 charge. Damage to tyres, glass and vehicle underside is also not covered - really you need to buy additional insurance otherwise you are taking quite a risk.
#15
I suppose this is the backlash of the No fly week.
#16
Very clever of Hertz to turn last weeks disaster into a marketing opportunity. Hundreds if not thousands of people will have rented a car in Europe to get back to the UK and now Hertz need to get them back to their own countries. For every day they're over here Hertz is losing money so they've got a choice, pay someone to send them back or offer them at next to nothing to customers and let them do the job for them.
#17
They have probably made a fortune from the poor sods stranded , personally I'd tell them to get stuffed .
#18

warm application need know ensure reference!


wtf is that supposed to mean???
#19
This is great, if you just wanted to travel around europe for a week,

Theres a 1.4 Fiesta that needs pick up at LHR back to Italy! I bet that car will not be getting booked soon!

If that was true the cars wouldn't need returning!
#21
Sounds like cheap labour to me !
#22
The only winner here is Hertz - not only do their customers pay them for the privilege of relocating their cars for them, but Hertz also get the customer to pay for all the fuel, tolls, ferries, etc. to get the cars 'home'! Cheeky *****!
#23
No matter which way you ride it, it always hertz - hertz rent a car :)
#24
This is a cheep way of them to get them delivered back to them at no cost to them, as they usualy hire a tow truck or send another one of their drivers on a train to collect, so in reality they are quids in really. lol Good if yr already at one of the points where a car needs picking up and you need to get to their destination or there abouts but one way mmmmmmmmm
#25
I have just driven back from southern Spain, the fuel was 400 euros plus the ferry 107 euros and tolls 45 euros, on top of that it took thirty hours.
I saw all the cars dumped at calais, some of them in a right state, bet they won't even be clean when u pick them up..........would have taken one if I had the opportunity and had to borrow one.
Clever sods, they don't know how to move that volume of dumped cars.
#26
We were stuck in Pisa last week, and on our way home we did 2 of these rentals for Hertz, one from Italy to Switzerland, and another from Switzerland to France.

And we got stung for about £500 in total for the privilege of delivering their cars home for them. He weeps...
#27
Yep. just what I was saying....did over 1400 miles with two teenagers, not a good deal at all.
#28
Good posting and will be sure to check this link if ever going to Europe in future. Heathrow is round the corner for us, City Airport across town and very easy by DLR.

Can easily book a one way train/flight back home nowadays - the killer is the ferry out. A little naughty and unrealistic of Hertz to make the offer only for another 2 days & make you pay for it (though a £1 ain't bad!) plus 48 hours for some of those destinations could mean doing a Dakar!

Don't forget 10% Quidco - so making it just 90p! I think you can add your Nectar, as you will actually be spending a quid - 2 points for the cheapskates!


I got 4 Ka's in a row for consecutive weeks from Heathrow in Hertz's 2008 £9/week 90yr celebrations. After Quidco (which was £8 per booking + registered 72 Nectar Points online) I paid £4 for 4 weeks - and they were decent enough to not make me turn up consecutive weeks to change car, only at end. As Car Insurance was about to run out and Road Tax too - I simply SORN'ed the family car for a month and didn't renew immediately. The difference between our 2.0l and the 1.1l showed in our petrol savings - and the kids loved it! I reckon we saved over £150 in real money thanks to Hertz/Quidco that month - remains one of my best Quidco deals!

cant understand nationalist types

Wouldn't want to fork out the fuel cost for a long Europe trip.
#31
Only use I can see is if you need to move a lot of stuff (small house/flat move). Then again, for a 21 yo wanting a car - the low-fare-plane-fare back could be less than the young driver charge...
#32
There's an X-Type Jag in Belfast that just needs a run down to dublin. £15 in diesel £7 on the bus back up the road would be a great day out.
#33
As I said they do have some good motors on offer. Quite a few Golf VIs, some BMWs and Mercs etc, the odd Audi. Not a bad selection. I wouldn't want to do it in a 0.8 Matiz though..

but cheaper than paying someone £1-200/day
#35
Add the cost of fuel, ferry or rail crossing, transport back to the UK and the time taken to drive and the £1 one way rental seems not so cheap.... this deal is only good for those who actually were planning to go to the location or nearabouts one way or can find a cheap single return fare back otherwise just to go for the sake of it does not make any financial sense....Hertz would have to pay as mentioned before the fuel costs, the wage and other expenses to its staff but here they are doing the opposite and charging £1!!
#36
a disgrace to all mankind
#37
to be fair Hertz should be paying people to get them back, cheeky ******s!
#38
This ends tomorrow though, great deal, but a bit late...
#39
you also only have 48hrs to deliver

no time for sight seeing, and hard pressed to get to italy in that time i would guess

good deal if the criteria is suitable for you, but i think a bit of a con for most people

per website


Cars are available for pick up in Calais, Le Havre, Caen, Cherbourg, Brest, Nantes, Dieppe, St Malo and for drop-off in Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux, Toulouse, Marseille and Nice.


So basically they have thousands of cars dumped at ferry terminals on North coast of France and they need them to get back to Paris and everywhere down to the south of France but they don't want to pay.

seems to me that the recent Volcano has totally messed up their car rental volumes at places people are less likely to hire a car (ferry terminals where most UK drivers have their own cars)

by doing this they actual save a fortune

This is one rubbish deal lol

on another note I'm still waiting for my £28 Hertz quidco cashback from May 2009
Shoddy company... shoddy deal
