UPDATE: This post refers to an expired promotion; entries were due by July 15, 2018 and winners of the contest were announced July 16, 2018.
Hertz ICC Soccer Contest

Rarely do rental car companies introduce contests that only last a few days but Hertz -- an Official Partner of the 2018 International Champions Cup -- has launched a contest providing entrants the opportunity to win two tickets to any of the 17 matches to be held in the United States. And with the matches starting in just over a week, there's effectively no turnaround time for many winners to get on the scene! Per the contest rules, entries (limit one per person) require social media, tagging a friend, and putting in hashtags for the team (or up to three teams) one would want to see. And Hertz promises a random drawing among eligible entrants, with two pairs of tickets being distributed for each of the 17 matches hosted in the United States.

Win a VIP Race Weekend with the Hertz and NASCAR

Hertz Nascar

In May, we noted how Hertz had signed on as a primary sponsor of the #24 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet driven by Wiliam Byron. Hertz has now announced a contest where one winner will receive a "VIP Motorsports Weekend" for the November 9 - 12 race weekend in Phoenix. The prize includes flights for four, hotel for four, a Hertz rental car, 4 VIP tickets to the race, a meet-and-greet with the driver, a hauler tour, and seating on the pit box. It's a fantastic offer for those interested in cars and racing but like everything else in the rental car world, there's a catch. In this case, there's a hidden cost of entry.

Win 10,000 Enterprise Points to Celebrate 10,000th Location

Enterprise 10,000 Points Contest

Enterprise Holdings is far and away the largest rental car company in the world and is celebrating the opening of their 10,000th location across their three brands (Alamo, Enterprise, and National) and is launching a contest in conjunction with the site opening. It's not the only major milestone achieved by the corporation recently, as the company just passed 100,000 employees in November 2017. However, Enterprise didn't release a promotional contest to celebrate 100,000 employees, as that occurred during the Fall/Winter 2017/2018 Plus Your Points Offer. So what do we know about the 10,000th location and the renter-oriented contest commemorating the milestone?

Hertz Ups the Ante, Offers Maseratis in Select Italian Locations at Hard to Fathom Rates


Recently, our blog noted how Sixt had decided to make their fleet on Sardinia entirely based on Mini and BMW vehicles. After all, Sixt has a reputation for offering truly elite vehicles while competitors (such as Hertz) have a reputation from offering less-than-elite vehicles. Hertz decided to step up their game in Italy (including Sardinia) by adding exclusive offerings from legendary Italian automaker Maserati. Renters in Rome, Milan, Venice, Florence, and Olbia will -- over the next year -- have the opportunity to book the Maserati Quattroporte, Ghibli, or Levante. And while it's not the first time modern Maseratis have been available in the rental fleet -- some National locations in the U.S. offered the Ghibli -- this is a relatively widespread offer where those Italian Hertz locations have the rights to rent Maserati vehicles. There's just one thing -- Hertz is offering the vehicles but there's really not a plan for renting the vehicles. What do we mean?

Sixt Goes Upscale with Sardinia Fleet, Offering Only MINI and BMW Vehicles


Planning a trip to Sardinia? If so, we can only say we're a bit envious -- everything we see from tourist promotion materials and traveler rating websites shows an area with fantastic natural beauty, high-quality accommodations, and activities for everyone (including a UNESCO World Heritage site). After all, Sardinia is a big island with much to explore (the two airports are over 150 miles apart). Car enthusiasts who've made their way to the island have access to another treat. Sixt has partnered directly with auto manufacturers to guarantee every vehicle in their local fleet is either a model produced by MINI or BMW. Sixt has a reputation for slightly more upscale offerings at their rental sites but still, Sardinia represents a rarity. At the time of reservation, the vehicle manufacturer will be known and most renters will be able to ascertain precisely which vehicle model should be assigned.
