Taillights

For much of the history of Hertz Global Holdings, the company -- now the parent of Dollar, Hertz, and Thrifty -- was the market-dominant leader (by far). Now, the company is firmly entrenched as the number three rental car corporation and taking cues from market dominant Enterprise Holdings (Alamo, Enterprise, and National) and AvisBudget Group (Avis, Budget, and National), including listing predictable offers more than a month later than their competitors. Every fall, rental car companies focus on getting vehicles to Arizona and Florida -- high-use areas in the winter -- and away from colder climes. Each spring, the rental car companies need to get vehicles out of Arizona and Florida to areas with greater summer demand. AvisBudget Group and Enterprise Holdings listed their offers more than a month ago; now Hertz and the company's subsidiaries are officially in the game -- better late than never, as one might say.

We've already compared the Arizona drive-out offers of Avis, Budget and Enterprise. Sister companies Alamo and Enterprise and competitor Budget already had $9.99 per day Florida drive-out promotions. Now, Dollar, Hertz and Thrifty have entered the game with promotions for each of the two states:

The addition of Dollar, Hertz and Thrifty to the formal Arizona and Florida drive-out programs simply means there are more potential opportunities for drivers who are seeking one-way rentals from Arizona and Florida. The Dollar, Hertz and Thrifty offers work like the others except are more restrictive -- there's a concise list of eligible pickup cities, eligible return cities, and the maximum rental length is "only" 10 days for the one-way rental. Yet for customers looking to drive one-way from Arizona or Florida to anywhere else this spring, these offers just might hit the spot! 

The AutoSlash team members are fans of convenience -- if one requests quotes at a neighborhood location, then our choice of rental car company might be based solely upon the closest location that returns a quote that's eligible for a discounted offer. However, we noted in a previous post that we're happy Avis has joined the game because at major airport-based locations, members of the Avis Preferred program would have the ability to choose their own car for a one-way trip and earn Avis Preferred points. Similarly, Hertz Gold Plus members could take advantage of the same flexibility (if the discount's available at one's airport). There might be options among multiple rental car companies offering these promotions -- if so, we would recommend the option that provides greater choice, convenience, and the ability to accrue awards toward future free rentals..  

Whether a renter is a fan of Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Enterprise, Hertz or Thrifty, the first step in finding the lowest rates -- even on limited-time promotions -- is to always request a quote from AutoSlash.com/Quote. If the offers are available, those will automatically be reflected in the quotes you receive with no need to search all the rental car companies individually!
