Hertz - closes Deer Lake Airport desk

Hertz car rentals has closed its Deer Lake Airport sales desk this week. Furthermore, there are various stories of poor customer services and cancelled bookings.

Its likely to be caused by the loss of the charter flight (Gatwick to Deer Lake), and the lack of tourist visitors in January ... and for the foreseeable future, or at least until the flights situation gets sorted.

So, more unemployment, and less local services. Not good for the province.

Hey Dan,

It is my understanding that the Hertz closing had little to do with the loss of the charter flight.

You may have heard that a long standing car business in St. John's, Tom Woodford, recently closed because of tax issues.

Many car rental agencies are owned by car dealerships. Tom Woodford owned Hertz. When Tom Woodford went down, Hertz went down.

Great pictures of the snow by the way.
