British Rowing is delighted to announce Hertz as its Official Vehicle Hire Supplier, with British Rowing members able to enjoy a discount on each hire at home and abroad.

British Rowing understands the challenges many rowing clubs face transporting boats, equipment and crews to head races and regattas up and down the country. That’s why British Rowing is partnering with Hertz to make it more cost-effective for British Rowing’s clubs and members to transport teams and kit to events and training camps, in Great Britain and overseas. Hertz has more than 90 years of experience in van and car hire with a fleet of over 18,000 vehicles at over 140 hire centres nationwide allowing rowing clubs to pick up a vehicle locally.

If you hire a van in the UK, you could find yourself driving the British Rowing branded vehicle, so keep an eye out for the distinctive livery on the roads of Great Britain.

Members can take advantage of a ten per cent discount when hiring cars or vans direct from Hertz. This discount can also be used by our members for holiday car rentals or business purposes, both at home and abroad. Hertz vehicles are available to hire in 150 countries worldwide.

As well as supporting grassroots participation, Hertz will also provide vehicle solutions to British Rowing and its talent identification programme Start, which trains individuals with no prior rowing experience to become Olympic rowers. Graduates of the Start programme includes double Olympic champions Heather Stanning, Helen Glover and Alex Gregory.

Mark Wileman, Head of Marketing, Hertz UK, said: “We are very pleased that British Rowing has chosen to partner with us. The work that British Rowing does to champion and represent rowing at all levels is first class, and we are very pleased to support them. We look forward to providing clubs and members with their vehicle hire requirements with the professionalism and top service that they expect from a brand like Hertz.”

Kenny Baillie, British Rowing’s Director of Partnerships and Communications, said: “We’re excited to be working with Hertz as we believe this new partnership will be of great benefit to the rowing community across the country. Running a fleet of vehicles is often not practical for many grassroots clubs so we hope this partnership will offer a more cost-effective solution while also giving our members a great discount when hiring vehicles on holiday, at home or abroad.”
