When renting a car, you usually get what you pay for. For a busy traveler racing between planes, airports, hotels and clients, a smooth car rental process is key--and a less-than-smooth car rental process can wreak havoc on every other component of a trip.
That's why we've chosen Hertz for the first time as a Business Travel Award winner. Although you may pay slightly more for a Hertz car, the company has the rental process down to an exact science. Customers can count on car availability; rates that include all taxes, surcharges and fees; and counter agents who don't push too hard trying to persuade renters to buy unnecessary insurance. There's rarely a line or a wait to pick up or drop off your vehicle. And Hertz's Web site is informative, easy to use and offers discounts for online bookings.
If your small or midsized business doesn't have a negotiated contract, the Hertz Business Account Program provides special car rental rates and benefits, including a free rental day after every five paid rentals, waived Hertz #1 Club Gold membership fees (normally $50), free upgrades and free weekend rental days.
