Innovation, convenience and green technology are at the core of our Smart Mobility efforts. Hertz On Demand, our award-winning car sharing program, delivers on these principles by providing immediate, 24/7 access to fuel-efficient and clean-technology rentals at more than 500 pickup locations worldwide.
Hertz On Demand gives renters the freedom of car ownership, without the economic, environmental and logistical challenges that come with owning a car.
Hertz On Demand Sustainability Benefits
Every Hertz On Demand car removes 14 personal vehicles from the road.
Hertz On Demand car rental, a form of car sharing, gives members immediate access to rental cars by the hour, by the day and for one-way trips. Car sharing members typically drive fewer miles and use more non-vehicle transport (e.g., mass transit) compared with car owners. Fewer miles driven, coupled with shared-car utilization, leads to 14 fewer cars on the road for every Hertz On Demand vehicle.
What do fewer cars on the road mean for you and the environment?
- Less traffic congestion
- Reduced parking space demand
- Decreased oil and gas consumption
- Fewer driving emissions
- Increased non-vehicle travel between car trips (walking, cycling and public transport)
Right-Sized Green Vehicles
Large or small, Hertz On Demand provides green vehicle options to meet any transport need. Choose from a vast range of hybrids, hybrid SUVs, and EPA SmartWay-certified and electric vehicles.
Fuel-efficiency counts, even when you’re not paying at the pump
Hertz On Demand sources the newest and most energy-efficient models possible, which helps reduce driving emissions, fuel consumption and encourages green technology development.
To conserve water and still meet Hertz’s high-quality service standards, Hertz On Demand employs a waterless, non-toxic “green clean” process. This ensures that cars are detailed properly while conserving water and avoiding toxic cleaners.
