Hertz has added the Mini One, Mini Cooper and Mini Countryman to its British Collection rental fleet. To celebrate, it called upon the help of vehicle wrapping company Yiannimize. The results are certainly eye-catching.
The artwork features the traditional red, white and blue of the Union Flag, plus 16 references to British culture. Highlights include the Pizza Express in Woking, Jo Swinson’s battle bus and people arguing on social media. Probably.
Hertz launched the British Collection in March 2019. The fleet includes the Land Rover Discovery Sport, Jaguar F-Pace, Jaguar E-Pace, Jaguar XE and Jaguar XF. Now, for the first time, customers can rent one of the three Mini variants.
Richard Davies, country manager, Hertz UK, said: “Mini is an icon of British style and culture, and, as such, it had to be part of our British Collection. The exclusive wrap designs we have chosen to mark the expansion, along with the high-end service that characterises our British Collection, will offer customers a fun, yet classy, way to travel.”
A total of 60 Minis – well, it is the car’s 60th anniversary – are available at Hertz locations in Edinburgh Airport, Heathrow Airport and Marble Arch. The Jaguars and Discovery Sport can be rented from the same locations, along with Manchester Airport and Glasgow Airport. Bookings must be made online via the Hertz website.
For the authentic British experience, customers are treated to a complimentary door-to-door concierge service, access to a dedicated lounge featuring designs from Tom Dixon furnishings, botanical drinks and flowers by McQueens.
They also get a make and model guarantee, meaning the car they book is the one they drive away with. Drivers must be aged 25 or above and must be able to present two credit cards.
The Yiannimize Mini Coopers are subject to availability, so your rental car might not feature the eye-catching wrap. You can decide whether or not this is a good thing.
