AMSTERDAM — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 10, 2013 — Global car rental provider Hertz Corporation (NYSE: HTZ) and TomTom have extended their business partnership to offer enhanced navigation solutions to Hertz customers across Europe by introducing the NeverLost® 5 GPS system. NeverLost navigation devices can be booked in advance when making a reservation at local hertz websites or by phone.

Michel Taride, Group RAC President Hertz International, commented: “We are committed to giving our customers a superior service, and we know that with the NeverLost® 5 navigation devices, we will be offering rental drivers an enhanced driving experience. The devices are being made available to Hertz customers in over 700 major airports and cities across 18 countries in Europe.”

The NeverLost 5 portable system features an easy-to-use touchscreen, turn-by-turn directions in 45 languages, and a large database of pre-programmed locations, allowing customers to navigate with confidence.
