About Hertz, History and Headquarters Information


Hertz was founded in the year 1918. The company has been operational for almost 101 years now. The founder of the company was Walter L Jacobs. The former name of the company was Rent A Car Incorporated. The company started off with a dozen Model T Ford cars, and within the next five years, the company had expanded to almost 600 cars. During that time, the company was already generating nearly $1 million revenues as well. In the year 1923, the company was taken over Yellow Truck and Coach Manufacturing Company, and it was renamed to Hertz Drive-Ur-Self System. The company was again sold to General Motors Corporation in the year 1926, who had also purchased its parent company, known as General Motors Corporation, in the year 1943. The company had released its first car under the ownership of General Motors. The company had opened its first rental car location at Chicago's Midway Airport in the year 1932. The following year, the company had also introduced the first one-way rental plan. The company had expanded to Canada in the year 1938, along with Europe in 1950 and even South America in the year 1961.

The company was repurchased from General Motors by John Hertz in the year 1953. The company was renamed to The Hertz Corporation, and the company was also made a limited public entity as well. The company had also relocated its headquarters from Manhattan to New Jersey, USA, in the year 1988. The company also started truck leasing services as well, in the year 1954, with the help of almost 4,000 trucks. The company had also taken over Metropolitan Distributors, which had increased the company's number of trucks to over 15,500 trucks and more than 12,900 cars. In the year 1985, the rental car service was sold over UAL Corporation, for about $587.5 million. In the year 2000, the company started to introduce SiriusXM Satellite Radio in all of its rental cars and trucks as well. The company was the first rental company to launch its services in China. Then in the year 2007, the company started to provide vehicles that create less pollution with the Toyota Prius Hybrid. Two years later, the company had taken over a car sharing technology company known as Eileo SA. As of the year 2012, the total revenue generated by the company is more than $7.1 billion. The following year, the company had partnered up with China Auto Rental Company as well. The same year, the company also introduced rental for performance oriented cars too. As of the year 2016, the company had reached a market capitalisation of almost $3.7 billion. The headquarters of the company is based in 8501 Williams Road. The name of the place is Estero, while the name of the state is Florida, USA. The pin code of the area is 33928.

    They have beautiful cars that you select on the website and I reserved one with navigation features, etc. When I got to the airport they only had one car left and it was an old one with an outdated navigation system. It was awful. I got lost several times and one night a policeman had to drive in front of me to show me back to the hotel. Why doesn’t Hertz “SAVE” your car for you. I paid and was charged for a much better car. They took me for a ride alright!

  • Maria says:

    I rented a vehicle oversees and it broke down 20 minutes later. I waited for 4 hours for someone to come and get me, take me back to the airport, waited for the mechanic to say ok there’s something wrong and then they gave me another car. A week later they charged me $1700 for a damaged clutch. I tried reaching out and was told it was my fault even though I have time stamps on everything. Any thoughts?

  • Robert Senior says:

    When you reserve a car 60 days in advance you would think that you would have a car waiting for you when you get to office for pick up. Second time they have done this to me….I thought I would give them one more chance. Fool me once, but fool me twice and goodbye Hertz. They release all their cars to their dealer contracts and never have any cars for the common rental customers. You are a rental car company that never has any rental cars available…Even though you have a reservation it does not matter. Two times you have done this..I will be using your competitor Enterprise from here on out. NEVER AGAIN HERTZ HEMET CA, NEVER AGAIN>

  • Maryann Moffatt says:

    I would like to know how a company can get away with quoting you one price online and charging you a different price on your credit card. I booked online and it quoted me in Canadian dollars, so I booked it, got my credit card and the amount was right but it was in American dollars. Which worked out to over $100 more in Canadian. The worst part is no one could resolve this issue. I was on with customer service, then reservations, then back to customer service to be put back to reservations. On the phone for over 2 hours back and forth, and at the end all I get is sore sorry too bad we can’t do anything about it. I agree with the last person who commented on the customer service they are useless when it comes to issues. I don’t know why they are even there. Totally useless. Both departments. I have booked through Budget and when they quote you in Canadian dollars they charge you in Canadian. Not quote in Canadian but charge you in U.S. dollars. I had a cheaper rate in U.S. and I cancelled it because I was lead to believe I was getting a better rate because of the Canadian dollar. The is just WRONG to trick you customers and take advantage of them like that. Then when I ask for an email address so I can voice my complaint they tell me Hertz doesn’t have an email address or they at least don’t have it. Customer service doesn’t have the email address of their own corporation. REALLY. A company as big as Hertz. I so regret booking with Hertz should have stayed with Budget and least they know what they are doing. So heed my warning. If they quote other than U.S. they are GOING TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOU. Better yet book with someone else. I picked Hertz thinking they would be reliable and take care of their customers. WRONG AGAIN.

  • Frank Calomino says:

    We paid $50.00 cash for a deposit for a rental car. And was told we would get it back by check. Your company has the worst customer service. You customer service reps have hung the phone up on us. It has been almost 8 weeks and still no check sent to us. We where told there was no way to track the check they say was processed. HOW DO YOU RUN YOUR BUSINESS? You should be ashamed of yourselves. You should spend some money on training your employee’s with customer service skills and how to process and the the refunds out to they people that make YOU RICH.

  • MIKE KITZ says:

    I dont know what else to do ? I had $500 stolen out of my account for a loaner car that later was billed as a rental car . Now there is another $56 taken from my account that i have no idea what this is for ? This put my account in the red !! WHEN WILL THIS STOP ? Please help ?

  • Fola Will I Am El says:

    I just would like to thank Fahar from BWI Airport location manager of Hertz and Dyana from Thrifty who were instrumental in helping to resolve my issue. They were both professional and customer friendly with pleasant demeanor and beautiful spirit. They manage to get me the car that was needed in order to travel to another state. Once again kudos because I will be utlizing Hertz services again.

    I am writing in hopes to get this issue resolved.
    I was charged $460.82 for a car that I did not rent. My schedule pickup date was the 16th June. My flights kept getting cancelled coming in from Dallas. Several calls where made to the Hertz facility at MCI to keep them aware of the situation. I was assured that the car rental facility would be open until 2:00 a.m. When I arrived at 1:30 the car place was CLOSED. However your agency kept the prepaid amount of $460.82 I have been trying since the 16th of June to get my refund. I have spoken with two managers Karen and Marcus Conely. I have been promised by both that I would receive my refund. This has not happened. I am a military dependent and a Federal Government employee. I was dependent upon that vehicle to use to get to my TDY was location at Ft. Leavenworth. Although I have not on a regular basis used Hertz because I do not travel that often, I still took time out to join. I am very disappointed and frustrated with the events. This really should not have been such a long process, obviously, you have $460.82 that is not associated to a car rental contract. For the record I will not rent or recommend to anyone, military or civilian to use Hertz car rental from this point on. I will place on my Facebook my experience with Hertz Rental from the MCI airport.
    Thank you one lost loyal customer

  • Franc Van says:

    Via Hotwire, I rented a “Special” #4651853540 at Dollar rental Car for June 13-26, 2019. I understood that it could be “Anything available” and have no problem with that, but when I was offered a Silverado Pick up Truck I had a problem. My wife and I are in our 70ths and do not like to climb up into a truck, in particular since we were going to travel with our 3.5 year grandson in a car seat. Loading suitcases into the truck or even loading them into the truck bed (and exposing them to the rain and sun) for seventy year olds with a baby and luggage is not practical or even dangerous.
    Explaining that to the Dallas Fort Worth counter personnel did not matter and they lifted not a finger, UNTIL they asked me what airline I was traveling (a peculiar question to begin with!!!). Suddenly they had a car “available” but I had to pay $224.25. I thought and assumed that this was going to be credited against my $388.41 reservation. But later I discovered that was OVER AND ABOVE the $388.41 dollars for a total of $612.66. This is not fair and was certainly not explained. I thought they were trying to HELP. Upon our return on June 26, The Manager TINA at DFW did not give a crimp or was even hostile.

    1) I would like to have restitution/credit (we travel frequently and rent almost monthly) for the $224.25.
    2) I would like to have you clarify that a “SPECIAL” not only includes sedans or SUVs as we always assumed and had no way to expect otherwise, but also includes a TRUCK, which is for some people difficult to manage.
    3) I would like the personnel (and you) to be more sympathetic to elderly people and our plight.

    I am sure they did “everything BY THE BOOK”, but that is not what I am talking about. I don’t think I have to expand further.

  • Shirley E Sorenson says:

    i want to know why you 932.00 out of my bank account when erie insurance paid half of the that was owed

  • al perez says:

    On May 20th my truck was hit in the rear passenger quarter by one of your rental vehicles. After a number of phone calls I finally got a claim number, Hertz was supposed to have an adjuster get in touch with me, two weeks go by, nothing, call again, finally got an adjusters number to call. I’ve called him twice in the last two weeks and haven’t gotten no response. I would like you to email me so we have contact and for you to follow up with my claim number and have this resolved. It is dangerous for me to be using the truck with no rear brake or directional lights.

  • Imran Ali says:

    To whom it may concern. My name is Imran Ali on May 7 I called the Stockton location on Hunter Street to make a reservation for a full size vehicle to be picked up may 11 for AAA auto insurance. I was told that they would have a vehicle for me to pick up when I arrive. When I got there I was told there are no vehicle available for me at that location or the location near by. I had just left my vehicle at a near by auto body shop for repairs and now I don’t have a rental vehicle to go back home or to work. My question is that why make a reservation specially for your AAA members if there aren’t any vehicle available for customers. I should have been told the day I made the reservation that they don’t have enough vehicle at this location. Please feel free to contact me either by email or by phone with a response.

      They have done this to me twice. They release all the cars to their dealer contracts and dont care about their regular customers. Even if you have a reservation. No car… Never again Hertz. Do yourself and favor and use a company that will stand behind a reservation.
