"Avis was a much cleaner company to begin with".... says article writer that has never been inside an Avis rental car.

At this point, it's just a golden parachute factory.

Including Dollar and Thrifty (same corporate).  On the other hand, if you're in the market for a mildly-abused 2018 Sentra rubber-band-CVT penalty box, there are going to be a whole, whole lot of them available.

Uber is one step closer to eliminating its competition... Then they can raise their rates and become profitable.

Sounds like a failing Enterprise

They need to flood the market with cars.

I only say this because I'm looking for a newer, pre-owned Camry, and when there's a glut of cars, prices go through the floor.

Maybe they should have called Enterprise to pick them up.

Madman drummers bummers: Sounds like a failing Enterprise


When I quit my first real job in a blind rage without a new job lined up (very stupid, I learned quickly) for a few months I worked at one of those off-airport Hertz locations. While there's a whole book of stories I could write about the insanity of having to wear a dress shirt & tie for a job in which half of your day consists of vacuuming returned vehicles, from a business perspective I realized quickly why Enterprise was beating the ever living sh*t out of Hertz (and other rental agencies) in the insurance replacement game. At the time at least, a few major insurance companies would only offer direct-billing via Enterprise.

Just imagine being 23 years old wearing ill-fitting formal attire that smells vaguely of wet dog (from cleaning or picking up cars in the rain all day) and trying to serve an impatient Karen who rear-ended someone just the other day in her Gas Guzzling Grocery Getter and is looking at roughly 2-weeks worth of having to drive around in a sh*tty Corolla instead, and on top of that then having to explain "oh, because you use X insurance company, we'll have to bill the entire amount on your CC and you will have to seek reimbursement later". AND THEN, after you wipe her spittle off your face, you have to muster the audacity to try and sell the damage waiver on top of it.

Sounds like Hertz's fifth CEO ought to be Johnnie Walker Red.
