Driving for wishes

Hertz and Make-A-Wish are partnering as part of an ongoing initiative to help make wishes come true for children and teenagers with life-threatening illnesses.

Many of our wishes granted have a component where we need to rent cars to bring our wish children and their families to a destination they love to visit or to the airport. Hertz Asia Pacific will be providing Free of Charge rental vehicles for families travelling as part of their child’s wish, across six countries in the Asia PacificIn addition, Hertz will also activate a series of fundraising and donation initiatives over the course of the year to help granting even more wishes.

We are excited about this new partnership and look forward to creating joint wish journeys for children in Asia Pacific - Thank you Hertz!
