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.
