Hertz Rent-a-car

Hi Warren and Friends

The Vice President of Hertz, Jerry Preyss (Price), is here with us today to answer any questions about renting a Hertz car, buying a rental car, or racing with JDX racing at the 61st annual Sebring 12 hour.

Last week one of you asked about buying a rental car. This week I am with Hertz Rent-a-car and JDX Racing, in Sebring Florida. Hertz sponsors the JDX Racing team and we’re at the 61st Annual Sebring 12 hour. JDX Racing is part of the GTC class in the American Le Mans Series (ALMS).

Within the last year, Hertz has started renting high-end luxury sports cars, such as Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Bentley, and Aston Martin.

Let’s chat about cars:

From The Vice President of Hertz, Jerry Preyss:

There have been a couple of questions about EVs. Hertz has EVs in certain markets, in restricted markets. They also have hybrids.

If you think about it, car rental companies were the first car-sharing companies. In the second half of this year, Hertz is going to be fleetwide with the same technology that is used in car sharing. Hertz calls it on-demand technology which allows customers to rent 24/7 and by the hour!

Also, Hertz has EV chargers on corporate partner campus’ and various rental locations
