The Hertz Corp. continues expansion into the neighborhood market with the opening of 150 Hertz Local Editions in 33 states (listed below) — the greatest number of openings in a single quarter since Hertz began expanding into the local, neighborhood marketplace, according to the company’s July 23 announcement.
Since the beginning of the year, Hertz has opened 275 new locations and the company said it is committed to continue its expansion throughout the year (the company announced 125 new locations in the first quarter). The off-airport segment is strategically critical for Hertz and it is committed to developing new and expanded partnerships in the replacement market, offering customers pickup and delivery service, as well as growing leisure and business rentals, the company reported.
All Hertz options and rewards programs are available at Hertz Local Editions, as well as pickup and delivery service, and direct billing to insurance companies. In addition, as with all Hertz corporate locations, vehicles are available for rental with unlimited mileage and all rate structures are honored, including one-way, inter-city rates.
Expanding market share rapidly in the $10 billion off-airport market, Hertz is opening major hub locations as well as co-locating with body shops, hotels and repair facilities to serve the needs of local customers. Off-airport rentals, which include monthly and multi-month rentals, have a longer average length of keep, which drives revenue per transaction.
Serving the insurance replacement industry for more than 10 years, Hertz has approximately 2,350 neighborhood locations nationwide, the majority of which offer pickup and delivery service as well as insurance replacement rentals. According to Hertz, it is a recognized supplier to more than 193 of the 209 largest insurance companies.
