TravelBrands offers free portable GPS rentals

Travellers can find their way with this complementary car rental add-on


MISSISSAUGA, ON – As of July 18, 2018, travellers can receive free GPS rentals through TravelBrands. This cost-effective solution is available with car rentals and will assist clients in ensuring they do not get lost on their vacations.


“We want to give travellers access to the world and make sure they don’t get lost along the way,” says Nathalie Tanious, Vice President, TravelBrands. “With just a $50 shipping fee, our rental option is far less expensive than GPS add-on options from local car rental suppliers.”


The portable GPS units are the latest widescreen Garmin Nuvi’s, and are known as a must-have when travelling. A routing map for the client’s respective rental country and a free dash mount are included in the GPS rental. Clients also have the option of purchasing a low-cost insurance in the event of lost or damaged equipment.


The free GPS rental offer is valid Hertz paid car rental for seven days or longer. The device rentals require seven days advanced notice in order to ship the equipment on time. The GPS rental is offered in rental regions including Canada, the U.S., Mexico, the Caribbean and Europe.
