Hertz Car Rental and Car Sales

If you’re looking for a car rental service, it’s a must that you are aware of the company’s reputation and the quality of cars that they offer for clients to rent. Hertz Car Rentals and Car Sales have all the available cars that you need whether it’s for personal for family use.

For personal cars, they have lots of Sedan types that you could choose from like the Ford Fiesta Dual Control. It is perfect for 5 people including the driver and it can fit 1 large suitcase and 2 small ones. It is of manual transmission and you can expect that it had air condition.

Now for family use, the company has some SUVs, mini vans and even 4x4s that you could rent. An example of their SUV is the Mitsubishi Outlander. It can carry 6 passengers including the driver and 2 large suitcases along with a small one could also fit in it. This one requires manual driving but you’d still be comfortable in it because it also has air condition. It requires 23km/liters when it comes to its gas and it emits 138 of Carbon Dioxide. This is perfect if you’re going on an adventure with your family or a group of friends.

These are just among some sample cars that you could rent from this company. You could request for a specific model that you want from them, but it would still depend on the availability of their cars at the moment you made a reservation.

One of the Largest, One of the Strongest

In the United States, the largest car rental company in terms of sales is The Hertz Corporation. The company operates as a subsidiary of Hertz Global Holdings Inc. and is based in Estero, Florida. In terms of sales and number of cars rented Hertz Car Hire remains one of the biggest.

Hertz Car Hire was started with twelve Model T Ford cars in 1918. The operation started in Chicago and was founded by Walter L. Jacobs. It was then sold to John D. Hertz in 1923. Hertz renamed the operation “Hertz Drive-Ur-Self-System”. The company was passed on to General Motors in 1943. Hertz bought the company back in 1953. It was then listed on the New York stock exchange in 1954 under The Hertz Corporation name.

Today, the Hertz Car Hire fleet includes a vast range of vehicle types and manufacturers. The majority of the cars are GM products but they also carry Ford (Mazda, Volvo, Mercury and Lincoln), Mercedes, Infiniti and Cadillac as well as other foreign cars. Hertz Rental now operates in around 145 countries. The Hertz Corporation has operations in 18 of these 145 countries while the rest operates as franchises.

More than the usual cars, Hertz Car Hire also launched their “Green Collection” in September 2006. Their Green Collection was envisioned to provide renters with relatively more environmentally friendly vehicles. The collection includes the Prius, the Camry and the Hyundai Sonata among others. Hertz Car Hire also has a car sharing service, which they launched in 2008. This service operates in Berlin, Madrid, New York and Paris together with some universities worldwide.

The overall customer experience with Hertz has been positive although there have been reviews that the company sometimes runs out of cars which have better conversion. Judging by that review, we can conclude that booking early comes in handy here since those who rent cars for cross country trips would of course want the most fuel efficient cars rather than a big SUV.

Clients should be very careful though with any nicks or dings they leave on the car upon return because they will charge you for it. Also, make sure to return the borrowed car with a full tank of gas as defined on the contract because they will charge you for it anyway. Liam Johnson has some praises for Hertz Car Hire’s customer service. Any problem he has with the car or the specs of the car would be solved in a few minutes.

Hertz’s overall vision is to be the most innovative leader in the car rental industry and by claiming the number one spot in terms of sales they should be on their way. Today, they seem to be one of the most popular mobility providers, which offer a really wide range of services, which clients absolutely love. With almost a century’s worth of experience it shouldn’t be hard to trust Hertz as far as the car rental business is concerned.
