About Hertz

The Hertz Corporation operates its car rental business through Hertz, the largest worldwide airport general use car rental brand, and its DollarThrifty and Firefly brands from approximately 11,555 corporate, franchisee, and licensee locations in approximately 145 countries in North America, Latin America, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.  Hertz is the number one airport car rental brand in the U.S. and at 130 major airports in Europe. The company also operates the Hertz 24/7 hourly car rental business. Hertz is an inaugural member of Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards Hall of Fame and was named, for the thirteenth time, by the magazine’s readers as the Best Car Rental Agency. Hertz was also voted the Best Overall Car Rental Company in Zagat’s 2013/14 U.S. Car Rental Survey, earning top honors in 14 additional categories and the Company won global awards for Best Rewards Program and Best Overall Benefits from FlyerTalk.com. Product and service initiatives such as Hertz Gold Plus Rewards, NeverLost®, and unique cars and SUVs offered through the Company’s Green Traveler, Adrenaline, Prestige and Dream Car Collections set Hertz apart from the competition. Additionally, Hertz owns Hertz Rent2Buy car sales and the vehicle leasing and fleet management leader, Donlen Corporation.  Hertz also operates one of the world’s largest equipment rental businesses, Hertz Equipment Rental Corporation, through approximately 350 branches in the United States, Canada, China, France, Spain and Saudi Arabia, as well as through its international licensees.

Bottom Line

I like to rent with Hertz and earn Hertz Gold Plus points because of their convenience in the rental process and in particular their mobile “carfirmation” notification system. But I think the biggest take away here is that you can earn Presidents Club with only 20 rentals. The Presidents Club elite level comes with the following benefits:

  • Confirmed vehicle availability of Standard Equipment Economy through Full-Size 4 door vehicles in the U.S. and Canada with a minimum 48 hour advance reservation.
  • Confirmed vehicle one-car-class upgrade available at all participating locations in the U.S., Canada and select European locations. Maximum upgrade is to a Full-Size class vehicle with a minimum reserved Compact vehicle.
  • 25% bonus on Hertz Gold Plus Rewards® Points.
  • 675 Rewards Points after every 15 qualifying rentals.
  • Includes all the benefits of Gold service.
