This is a great way for Hertz to add additional revenue and one of the easiest ways yet for travelers to maintain access to home without hefty data fees for their mobile devices.

The Hertz Corporation and Wind Mobile have launched a Mobile Wi-Fi service in Italy for Hertz car rental customers. The move follows the success of Hertz’s Mobile Wi-Fi offerings in the UK, Spain and the Canary Islands, Australia and New Zealand.

A pocket-sized device, Hertz Mobile Wi-Fi enables customers to enjoy fully secure 24/7 internet connectivity anywhere in Italy. Thanks to the mobile network provided by Wind, Hertz customers can browse at high speed (up to 21 Mbps) with unlimited data traffic for downloading and uploading. Customers can connect up to eight devices at the same time, such as smartphones, tablets, notebooks, and mini game consoles.

They can also considerably reduce the cost of calls and texts thanks to some popular and free mobile apps available on Google Play and Apple stores, as well as get all the benefits of an “always on” internet connection during their holiday or business trip. Hertz Mobile Wi-Fi is easily rechargeable in the car by USB and also through a mobile charger provided at the time of rental. The Hertz Mobile Wi-Fi service is currently available from the Hertz locations in Rome Fiumicino, Milan Malpensa, Bergamo Airport, Pisa Airport and Catania Airport. In the next few months, the device will also be available for rental in other Italian locations and airports. For the first 7 days, the unit rental is 8 euros a day (plus VAT and airport taxes), for a maximum charge of 56 euros (plus VAT and airport taxes).
