Summary of Hertz

On March 9, 2001, Hertz became a wholly owned subsidiary of Ford when Ford reacquired the outstanding 18.5% of Hertz' stock. In June 2001, Hertz launched another new level or premium car rental service with the introduction of the Hertz Prestige Collection. Offering vehicles from Jaguar, Land Rover, Lincoln and Volvo, Hertz Prestige Collection combines luxury vehicles with Hertz' exclusive customer services. With VW owning Europcar and Ford Hertz, you can see how the USA and Europe's main car companies are now competing in the car rental business. One reason for this maybe because it means the car company can guarantee it's cars being used by the major car rental companies, which is a major global business. Plus people renting the car can grow attached to a VW or Ford and then go home and buy one. It was a good idea for the major car companies to go into the car rental business.
