HERTZ CAR RENTALS
Hertz Rent-A-Car is the largest car rental company in the world, providing quality rental service for over 80 years. A wholly owned subsidiary of the Ford Motor Company, Hertz has set the standard for quality, reliability and service worldwide. The company specializes in local car rental at affordable rates, and serves approximately 1,900 locations in the United States and approximately 5,100 international locations. Hertz offers a wide variety of current-model cars on a short-term rental basis - daily, weekly or monthly - at airports, in downtown and suburban business centers, and in residential areas and resort locales. Today, Hertz' Worldwide Reservations Centers handle approximately 40 million phone calls and delivers approximately 30 million reservations annually.
The company was started in Chicago in September, 1918, by Walter L. Jacobs at the age of 22. This pioneer of auto renting started with a dozen Model T Fords, which Jacobs repaired and repainted himself. Within five years the business was generating annual revenues of about $1 million. In 1923, Jacobs sold his car-rental concern to John Hertz, President of Yellow Cab and Yellow Truck and Coach Manufacturing Company, but continued to be Hertz' top operating and administrative executive. The company was now called Hertz Drive-Ur-Self System. It was again sold to General Motors Corporation in 1926. In 1953, Hertz was bought from GMC by Omnibus Corporation, which divested itself of its bus interests and concentrated solely on car and truck renting and leasing. A year later, a new name was given -- The Hertz Corporation -- and was listed for the first time on the New York Stock Exchange. Jacobs became Hertz' first President and served in that post until his retirement in 1960. In 1967, Hertz Corporation became a wholly owned subsidiary of RCA Corporation but operated as a separate entity. In 1985, Hertz joined UAL, Inc. On December 30, 1987, Hertz was sold to Park Ridge Corporation, a company formed by Ford Motor Company and certain members of Hertz senior management for the purpose of purchasing Hertz. A year later, Volvo North America Corporation joined Ford and Hertz management as an investor in Park Ridge Corporation. In 1993, Park Ridge Corporation was merged into The Hertz Corporation, and a year later in 1994, Ford purchased the outstanding shares of Hertz. Hertz now became an independent, wholly owned subsidiary of Ford.
Hertz has scored many "firsts" in the car rental industry. Some of the most notable Hertz Firsts are: First Coast-to-Coast Network in 1925; First Rent-it-Here/Leave-it-There Program in 1933; First European location (France) in 1950; First Centralized Billing System in 1959; First Booking System for Travel Agents in 1962; First Club for Frequent Travelers, #1 Club® in 1972; First Express Service in 1980; First Computerized Driving Directions in 1984; and First Launched World Wide Web Site in 1996.
