Washington Wine Country announces partnership with Hertz

October 24, 2013 

Tri-Cities, WA. –Washington Wine Country has announced a new collaborative effort with Hertz Rent-A-Car to promote Washington Wine Country.

Beginning this month, Hertz will be the official rental car company for the “Taste and Tote” program, making it easier and more affordable for visitors to tour the Yakima Valley, Tri-Cities and Walla Walla Valley wine regions.

As part of this program, Hertz will waive car drop-off fees for visitors who wish to fly into one airport and fly out of one of the other two airports in Pasco, Yakima or Walla Walla. In addition, passengers that fly into those communities will receive a discount when using Hertz Corporate Discount Program (CDP) number 2016865.

“We are pleased to report that based on a recent survey of local participating wineries, it’s clear that the Taste and Tote program has the support and momentum to continue drawing visitors to Washington Wine Country,” said Kris Watkins, President and CEO of the Tri-Cities Visitor and Convention Bureau. “The partnership with Hertz is a strategic benefit for all three communities and will strengthen the program,” she added.

Existing features of the Taste and Tote program allow travelers on Alaska Airlines to check a case of wine free of charge if flying to destinations within the U.S.; plus customers can sample wines at nearly 200 participating wineries and pay no tasting fees when they show a current Alaska Airlines boarding pass from one of the three airports.
