Hertz reinvents Newark Airport car rental experience

As part of an ongoing reinvention of the car rental experience, The Hertz Corporation recently completed technological and logistical renovations at its Newark International Airport facility as part of a larger global effort.

Making the rental experience the fastest, easiest and most valued in the industry, the newly renovated Newark location breaks the norm, bringing to life the integrated rental experience Hertz views as the future of travel. 

Hertz plans to replicate the experience throughout the year at Hertz’s top 50 US airport locations, representing 70 per cent of US airport travellers. 

Most recently, Hertz completed renovations at its Frankfurt, Germany airport location and, to date, has renovated its San Diego and Shanghai airport locations, the Marble Arch location in central London, and Hertz’s Melbourne, Australia headquarters.
