Who We Are
In September of 1918, the pioneer of auto renting, Walter L. Jacobs, at the age of 22, opened a car-rental operation in Chicago. Starting with a dozen Model T Fords, which he repaired and repainted himself, Jacobs expanded his operation to the point where, within five years, the business generated annual revenues of about $1 million. Some 95 years later, Hertz is still leading the industry in creativity, innovation, sustainability and service.
We are proud to be the only true global car rental company, providing quality car rental service for over 95 years.

Hertz is a global company, operating 8,500 locations in 146 countries, but we rely on local talent and communities for the success of our business. This is an obligation we take seriously and we focus our efforts on being a positive corporate community partner everywhere we operate.
Our goal is to enhance communities we serve by giving back through our volunteer and philanthropic programs.
At Hertz, giving back to the communities where we work and live is important. Providing financial and service contributions are small ways we hope to provide a lasting and meaningful contribution to our stakeholders. We are proud sponsors of the United Way©, American Red Cross©, Make-a-Wish Foundation©, National Multiple Sclerosis Society®, Habitat for Humanity© and numerous local organizations.
There is no final destination that represents the end of our Living Journey sustainability efforts. It’s a process of continuous improvement and assessment. We celebrate our successes but recognize that there is always more we can do, and we are constantly looking to improve our processes, engagement, measurement and transparency.
Our goal is to integrate sustainability throughout our business, partnerships and employee programs.
Since 1918, Hertz has had a long-standing tradition of innovation and industry leadership. Hertz Living Journey strategy strives to build on this heritage as we integrate sustainability practices throughout our business operations, provide Smart Mobility choices to customers and manage our environment impacts through efficiency and technology improvements.
Our business has grown thanks to people who like people, and flourished because of the teamwork of employees who put pleasing the customer first and who take special pride in doing a job exceptionally well.
Our employees join us for a number of reasons. But no matter how different their backgrounds or diverse their duties, all face the new challenges of a fast-paced, demanding business. Those who best meet these challenges are the champions of our team and find a rewarding career where no two days are alike.
