Hertz has been recognized as the “Best Car Rental Company in the World” by two travel industry awards: Global Traveler GT Tested Reader Survey Awards and Business Traveler Magazine's 2015 Best in Business Travel Awards.

"We are extremely honored and appreciative that readers of Global Traveler and Business Traveler — some of our most loyal customers — have chosen to recognize us as the best," said Matt Jauchius, Hertz’s executive vice president and chief marketing officer. "These awards are a testament to the hard work and dedication of our 30,000-plus employees around the world who strive to deliver the Hertz promise of excellence every day."

Global Traveler named Hertz "Best Car Rental Company" in the 12th GT Tested Reader Survey awards, which asks business and luxury travelers to name the best in a variety of travel-related categories. The survey honors airlines, hotels, loyalty programs and travel-related products in more than 80 categories.

GT's readers vote for their favorites in the world of travel in an open-ended survey running in the magazine and online from January to August each year.

"Our readers know the best of the best in the business, as they are traveling daily, flying these very airlines and staying at all of these hotels," said Francis X. Gallagher, publisher and CEO of Global Traveler.

Business Traveler Magazine's 2015 Best in Business Travel Awards named the travel industry's top providers of services and products. Hertz was named "Best Car Rental Company in the World," and winners were chosen by the magazine's readers in the 27th Annual Best in Business Travel survey, according to the company. This year, readers selected the best in 48 different categories, ranging from airlines, hotel companies and car rentals, both by regions and worldwide.

"When business travelers speak, our industry listens," said Dan Booth, editorial director of Business Traveler Magazine. "To be voted the Best in Business Travel by our readers means you have met — and exceeded — the highest expectations of your most experienced and demanding customers."
