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.”

The Hertz “Click, Swipe, and Go!” process will be readily available to everyone who’s a Hertz member. Just log on to your account by a simple Click at hertz.com or hertz247.com via your mobile app or your laptop and then complete your reservation details in less than 5 minutes. The next step is to Swipe your 24/7 key fob against the car windshield where the reader is and you’ll hear the car doors unlock. You can locate the car keys that are tethered on the dashboard. And then the last and final step –  Go!

Right now there are 35,000 vehicles of all types (sedans, mini vans, vans, SUV) available in about 1,800 neighborhood and airport locations around the U.S., Germany, France, U.K., Spain, and Australia with expansion plans of up to 2,000 opened neighbourhood and airport locations by year end. In the second week of September 2013, Hertz will host a 24/7 product and services demonstration event where they will focus on mobile applications that enhance the rental experience and, of course, the future of in-car telematics.

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. If you’re unfamiliar, Flyer Talk is a community of about 500,000 members who discuss and share travel information and tips regarding hotel, air, and car rental programs.

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.

Of course, all this hard work stems from instilled work ethics and values that Hertz and its leaders invoke on their company. According to Hertz’ Chairman and CEO, Mark P. Fissora, “Hertz prides itself on providing superior customer service and value with our innovative products and services, such as our robust and rewarding loyalty program” … “Being recognized yet again by the influential members of FlyerTalk for our Gold Plus Rewards program, and being selected as the ‘favorite’ and ‘best’ car rental company in the industry by travelers across the U.S., is a testament to our intense focus on giving our customers the fastest, easiest and most valued car rental experience.”

Hertz Continues to Expand Local Facilities, Opens Number 2,000

You can find a Hertz rental car counter in virtually every airport in the United States, and now you have a better chance of finding one in your own neighborhood as the company has announced the opening of its 2,000th Hertz Local Edition rental car facility. The newest location is in Philadelphia next to the Windsor Suites Hotel, and to celebrate the milestone Hertz has announced that all local rentals will be eligible to earn 2,000 Marriot Rewards points, instead of the standard 500.

Hertz, along with all the other major rental car companies, have been expanding into local markets to meet the demand for rentals at non-airport locations. These rentals are typically for local residents who need a car while their own car is being repaired, or those who don’t own a car but just to rent one for a short period. There is also demand for rental cars at hotels and resorts, as more travelers realize the advantages of taking a shuttle from the airport to the hotel and renting a car there. You can often find lower rental car rates at local rental facilities, and those savings can be magnified by the fact that local rentals typically don’t have as many added fees, taxes and surcharges compared to airport rentals. RentACarNow.com makes it easy to compare airport and local rental car rates from all the top companies at thousands of locations all over the country.

A Tip for Saving Money on a Rental Car: Consider All the Options

A couple decades ago, it was generally a good idea to go with a big-name rental car company, like Hertz, Alamo or National. Those companies typically had newer cars with lower mileage, while some of the “no-name” companies would give you an older, high mileage car. But things have changed a lot in the rental car industry, and now you can count on getting a top quality car from just about any rental car company, even smaller ones that you might not be familiar with, like Ace, Fox, Advantage or U-Save. In fact, thanks to consolidation in the industry some of the smaller companies are now owned by the larger, big-name companies.

At RentACarNow.com, we show you rates from a wide variety of rental car companies to help you find the absolute best deal. So if you see a great rate from a company that you don’t recognize, you can still be confident that you’ll be getting a well maintained car that is almost new. Oftentimes different companies will have different prices for identical cars. So is it really worth paying more money just to rent from a company with a familiar name? Most of the time it’s not, especially if you are comparing the same class of car.

Perhaps more so than most other comparison shopping, a big part of finding the best rental car deal simply comes down to the lowest price. After all, a Chevy Impala rented from Hertz is really not going to be any different than a Chevy Impala rented from Ace or Fox. At RentACarNow.com, we give you all the tools you need to find the lowest rental car rates.
