Mark P. Frissora, Chairman and CEO of Hertz Corporation said: "Our innovative Hertz On

solution for the individual mobility needs of airline staff. We are proud to be
cooperating with one of the world's leading airlines as well as becoming the number one
player in the field of corporate car sharing."

Ralf Diederichs, Head of Travel Management & Mobility Services: "The Lufthansa Carpool
powered by Hertz On Demand is an attractive offering for our employees. With its unique
car sharing technology, wide range of vehicles and 24/7 service, Hertz On Demand

choice of vehicles. The selection ranges from Fiat 500s and Ford Fiestas through to
station wagons and SUVs. In addition, seven-seaters or transporters are available for
either short- or long-term rental. One-way rentals between Lufthansa CarPool locations
