Hertz Launches Hertz 24/7 Program

Two days ago, Hertz car rental announced the global launch of Hertz 24/7. No longer will their clients get stuck on the time frame of making reservations and renting a car within a 9-5 limit because with Hertz 24/7, they get to rent a vehicle of their choice, anywhere, and at any time.

According to Hertz Chairman and CEO, Mark P. Frissora, “Driven by the company’s award-winning technology, Hertz is reinventing the car rental industry by putting the rental process in the hands of consumers. Technology-enhanced vehicles will be available close to where customers live or work, making it easier than ever to reserve and quickly pick-up a rental vehicle at the customer’s convenience. Urban and suburban customers will be able to rent a much wider variety of vehicles at any hour – not just weekdays 9 to 5 when a neighborhood rental location is open. 24/7 service is a key part of our commitment to create the fastest, easiest and most valued rental experiences in the business.”

Various Car Rental Industry Awards Honors Hertz

Just recently, the celebration of a good year for Hertz Corporation begins with winning 3 separate awards from leading influencers of the industry.

To begin with, based on a survey of U.S. based travellers for their most preferred brand of car rental during trips, Hertz Corporation’s Hertz car rental program won as the most favoured in the 2013 Traveler’s Choice Awards for Travel Favorites by TripAdvisor.

Secondly, and also for the second consecutive year, the FlyerTalks Awards granted top honors to Hertz and Hertz’ Gold Plus Rewards program for its amazing rewards program and the benefits provided in the Americas, Europe, Africa, and Middle East.

Lastly, Christopher Elliot, a known multimedia journalist and consumer advocate, awards top award to Hertz as the best car rental company amongst 5 others. Awarding was distinguished through a poll survey Elliot set up on his website, encouraging his readers to cast a vote each.
