Hertz Launches Facial Recognition Biometric Kiosk for Faster Rental Car Check-Out

December 13, 2018

Editors Note: Interesting news on the biometric kiosk, travel and hospitality industries today from Hertz and CLEAR. New facial recognition kiosks providing drive through customer check-in. Originally published by Hertz on 12/11/18.

Hertz and CLEAR today announced the launch of Hertz Fast Lane powered by CLEAR – a new service that uses biometrics to drastically speed up the car rental process and get travelers through the exit gate and on the road in 30 seconds or less – a time savings of at least 75 percent.

With CLEAR, members enroll once to enjoy frictionless experiences with greater predictability at more than 40 airports and venues nationwide. Now, Hertz Gold Plus Rewards® loyalty members who sign up for CLEAR and link their accounts will be able to verify their identity and rental reservation with just a look or tap of their finger. Hertz Fast Lane powered by CLEAR marks the first use of biometrics by a major rental car company, and the first time CLEAR’s trusted identity platform is enabling members to verify their identity using their face instead of showing a physical ID.
