HERTZ INTRODUCES ONE-WAY RATES; ELIMINATES DROP CHARGES ON DOMESTIC LEISURE RENTALS FOR MID-SIZE AND LARGER CARS

HERTZ INTRODUCES ONE-WAY RATES; ELIMINATES DROP CHARGES ON DOMESTIC
 LEISURE RENTALS FOR MID-SIZE AND LARGER CARS
 PARK RIDGE, N.J., Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The Hertz Corporation introduces One-Way Rates with free unlimited mileage available at all of Hertz' approximately 800 corporate locations nationwide. One-Way Rates allow travelers to rent from one Hertz location and return to another without incurring so-called "drop charges." A drop charge is the additional fee charged to the renter when the car is returned to a location other than the original renting location.
 Plans are under way to include Hertz licensees in the One-Way Rate program by December 1992, bringing the number of locations offering these rates to approximately 1,500 nationwide.
 Cars available under the program are those most suited to longer drives, including mid-size cars, such as the Ford Tempo, and full size two- and four-door cars, such as the Ford Thunderbird and Taurus.
 "By eliminating the drop charge, One-Way Rates not only simplify the rental but make it more affordable," said Brian Kennedy, executive vice president, marketing and sales, The Hertz Corporation. "They're ideal for vacation travelers who want to explore the country without the added time and expense of returning to the starting point. In addition, the longer the rental the less it costs per day.
 "Hertz has offered rates for one-way travel on a regional basis for some time, the key to the new program is that it is nationwide," continued Mr. Kennedy.
 Under the One-Way Rates program, for example, a three-day rental of a mid-size car rented in Washington, D.C. and returned to Atlanta, is $89.99 per day for a three-day total of $269.97. Previously, the same mid-size car would have been $42.99 per day plus a drop charge of $800.00 for a three-day rental totaling $928.97.
 A weekly rental of a mid-size car, picked up in Denver, and returned to Los Angeles, is available for the One-Way Rate of $68.99 per day totaling $482.93 for seven days. Before One-Way Rates, that rental would have cost $174.99 for the week plus a drop charge of $900.00 making a total of $1,074.99.
 Advance reservations are recommended but not required. There are no minimum length of rental requirements. Travelers may make reservations through their travel agent or call Hertz' toll-free reservations number, 1-800-654-3131.
 Hertz, the world's largest car-rental company, is represented in over 5,000 locations in more than 120 countries.
