Hertz > Coronavirus (COVID-19) Advisory

When you’re ready to travel again or have other transportation needs, please know that our focus remains on getting you where you need to go safely and confidently. Here are a few things we’ve been working on to continue building your trust and confidence.

Mask Policy Update

Following recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we no longer require fully vaccinated customers or employees to wear face masks – unless where required by state and/or local mandates. Our updated policy is effective as of June 16, 2021.

Your Safety is Our Priority

Please take proper precautions and wear a face mask until you are fully vaccinated and continue to practice proper hand hygiene, cover your coughs or sneezes, stay home if you’re sick and social distance as necessary. Rent confidently knowing all our cars are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected before being sealed so you are the first inside.

Introducing Hertz Gold Standard Clean

Travel confidently knowing very vehicle is sealed and certified ‘Hertz Gold Standard Clean’ after undergoing a 15-point cleaning and sanitization process that follows U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines. Learn more about  Hertz Gold Standard Clean, here.

Caring for Our Communities

Now more than ever, our communities need us and we want to help. Here are a few ways we are proudly serving our communities during this time:

  • Helping Healthcare Workers by providing complimentary vehicles in several cities around the world, including $2 million worth of free month-long vehicle rentals to 2,000+ New York City healthcare workers.
  • Supporting Small Businesses through the American Express Stand for Small coalition to offer exclusive benefits to small business owners.
  • Teaming up with Team Rubicon, a veteran-led disaster response organization, by providing vehicles to deliver food and healthcare supplies to people in need.
  • Hosting Blood Drives with OneBlood at select Hertz locations.

When you begin making travel plans, please know that everyone at Hertz remains relentlessly focused on ensuring your care and safety. We look forward to getting you on the road again soon.
