Today, smart parking solutions provider UbiPark and leading vehicle rental brand Hertz Australia have announced a strategic collaboration to develop smarter mobility solutions.


The collaboration will explore how Hertz can use the UbiPark suite of products to enhance its mobility solutions, helping customers search, navigate, access and pay for parking throughout Australia.


Technology is increasingly supporting tourists or travellers when they visit a new county or city, from AirBnB to Google Maps to Yelp. Working together, UbiPark and Hertz Australia will explore how to create an enhanced end-to-end customer experience, providing a simple and easy solution to help travellers get around unknown cities and destinations like a local.


“Our customers travel frequently for business and leisure and are often time poor. We want to make it easier for them to search, navigate and access parking, to help our customers get from A to B as easily, and quickly as possible,” said Eoin MacNeill, Vice President Asia-Pacific Hertz.

“By working with UbiPark, we can further enhance their experience with Hertz, when travelling in Australia. By collaborating with them, we can develop innovative solutions for Hertz customers to find and locate available parking at their desired destination.”

The collaboration between UbiPark and Hertz Australia will focus on the development of new mobility solutions for customers to enhance their experience when renting a vehicle.


“We’re excited to be working with Hertz, being one of the world’s largest vehicle rental companies. We are looking forward to collaborating with them to develop innovative mobility solutions, which address the parking and mobility pain points customers have when visiting a new location,” said Mosstyn Howell.
