As summer approaches millions of people across America will be getting ready for the Fourth of July holiday. In preparation for this, Lyft have said that they are upgrading their travel experience. Lyft has announced a joint venture with Hertz to expand its rental car footprint nationwide, Lyft has also announced that it is launching Priority Pickup and Shared rides at airports for easier and more affordable travel.  

Users are now able to book a Hertz rental car in select markets directly from the Lyft app. The new partnership offers customers ‘special perks’ including a $10 Lyft credit after you return your rental and a free additional driver option added to your reservation at pick up.  

The rental options begin in Austin, Charlotte, New Orleans, Kansas City and Nashville, with the aim of rolling out nationwide so that it is accessible to everyone.  

Riders are now able to choose the new feature, Priority Pickup, which is said to have shorter waits for rides to and from the airport. The feature is now available at LAX, JFK, LAS, MIA, SFO and many more.  

Lyft have also recently announced Shared rides which are returning to more cities, offering a more affordable option to be able to move around town. Uber and many other sharing mobility services also offer shared ride services which are particularly popular around the globe. 

Shared rides are now available at airports in the following locations such as Miami, Philidelphia, San Fransisco, San Jose, Denver, Las Vegas and Atlanta.  

This new partnership will give service users better options of travel for a more affordable price and will put Lyft as a more obvious choice for rides around the country.
