Car-rental company Hertz partners with airport security company Clear to allow its premium-level customers to quickly check out rental vehicles.
Hertz Gold Plus Rewards members enrolled in Clear can link their accounts, which allows them to use facial recognition portals to identify themselves and leave with their cars. The system allows drivers to pull up to a Clear portal in their rental vehicle to have their face scanned while remaining in the vehicle.
The idea is to speed up the check-out process. Hertz claims this new system takes less than 30 seconds.
The new system is currently in place at Hertz’s rental car center at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. The company will add 40 more locations in 2019, including Los Angeles International Airport, John F. Kennedy International Airport and San Francisco International Airport.
For its part, Clear offers Hertz Gold Plus Rewards members trial membership for one to four months, depending on their status with Hertz, plus a discounted Clear membership rate of $129.

People need a “chance to get some well-needed rest, relaxation and fresh air.” This is a sentiment we all likely share, as does the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. The EC included that phrase when it released its plan to help reopen Europe following the COVID-19 global pandemic. While most EU borders remain closed to international travel until at least mid-June, the EC’s plan starts with inter-Europe travel, and are non-binding recommendations and guidelines. European countries still have the final decision, so travelers are advised to check the restrictions of the countries they plan to visit. According to the EC, “blanket restrictions of free movement are replaced by targeted measures.”
