Hertz Honors Service Men And Women At The Greenbrier Classic

PARK RIDGE, N.J., June 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hertz  ( NYSE:HTZ), the world's largest general use airport car rental brand, and the Official Car and Equipment Rental Partner of The Greenbrier Classic, will honor our nation's military heroes at this year's PGA TOUR event, July 1-7, 2013.  As part of the Hertz for Heroes program, the Company will make a charitable contribution to Paralyzed Veterans of America, a leading advocate for research & education, benefits and civil rights for people with disabilities and their families in order to be productive members of society.

"Hertz is proud to partner with The Greenbrier Classic for the third consecutive year and honor our nation's paralyzed veterans," commented Mark P. Frissora, Hertz Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We established the Hertz for Heroes program to recognize those defending our country and the inspired patriotism that accompanies their service. Our partnership with the Greenbrier, America's Resort, celebrates and gives back to those veterans who have fought and made significant personal sacrifices for our freedoms."

The Hertz for Heroes Greenbrier Classic initiative includes a charitable contribution to Paralyzed Veterans of America:  $10 for every birdie, $50 for every eagle and $500 for every hole-in-one recorded during the 2013 Greenbrier Classic by PGA Tour professionals (guaranteeing up to $20,000 through Sunday).

Hertz for Heroes, a project initiated by Hertz employees with military backgrounds, was formerly launched in 2011 when the company donated 40,000 free weekend rentals to vets returning home from overseas.  Hertz for Heroes was expanded when the Company joined the White House's Veteran's Hiring Initiative, Joining Forces, led by the First Lady and Dr. Jill Biden.  In support of Joining Forces, Hertz launched a military hiring portal, http://hertz.jobs/military that allows veterans and their family members to view and apply for available Hertz jobs across all company divisions. To date, Hertz has hired more than 300 veterans, meeting its commitment to the Joining Forces initiative.   Hertz for Heroes has logistical and distribution support from the 8500 member National Defense Transportation Association, (NDTA).

Hertz is committed to offering its customers the most technologically innovative products and services available to keep customers "Traveling at the Speed of Hertz." This includes Hertz 'Carfirmations'; 'Gold Choice', which gives Gold members the power to keep the car they reserved or simply choose a different car from the Gold Choice area; and e-Return, with the fastest car rental drop-off that includes an email receipt within hours. These are all complimentary services for Hertz Gold Plus Rewards members, which is currently free to join.
