Hertz Portugal, a longstanding franchisee of The Hertz Corporation, and operated by the Hipogest Group, announces the launch of its motorcycle rental and tour service Hertz Ride in the United States. Starting from October 1, adventurers can rent Hertz Ride’s high-end motorcycles in Las Vegas and Riverside, California.
The Hertz Ride offering also includes discovery tours, specially created by a team of experts, for motorcycle and adventure lovers. The launch of Hertz Ride in the United States follows the success of the service in Portugal, Spain, France and Italy, where operations are managed by Hertz Portugal, and more recently in Austria and Slovenia via an agreement with Hertz’s franchisee for those countries.
Duarte Guedes, CEO of Hipogest Group and Hertz Portugal said, “It is with great enthusiasm that we are now officially opening our operations in Las Vegas and Riverside, California offering our top products to those who, like us, seek dream adventures on two wheels. Bringing Hertz Ride to the United States has always been our ambition and we look forward to offering our customers a quality, exciting service. Riders can now experience some of the most iconic roads and landscapes on earth on one of our top-class, especially equipped motorbikes.”

Customers seeking new experiences on two wheels can also opt for any of Hertz Ride’s professionally-guided motorcycle “Tours of a Lifetime” to discover both USA’s most iconic and off-the-beaten track routes, its dazzling and varied landscapes, and enjoy local cuisine and entertainment. Tours are planned and led by expert tour guides to ensure riders make the most of their trip and include the rental of a motorcycle with complete luggage system, 24/7 Roadside Assistance and, for a fully-encompassing, stress free adventure, they also comprise a vehicle for luggage transportation and accommodation in motorcycle friendly hotels with breakfasts and dinners included.
