Hertz is offering Tesla cars for rent in 2 California airports

Article by Anita Panait, on September 27, 2013

Hertz Global Holdings Inc. has added a number of Tesla Motors Inc. electric cars to its rental fleet at Los Angeles and San Francisco airports. According to Hertz, it now has five Tesla Model S and Roadster EVs at the two California airports. Paula Rivera, a Hertz spokeswoman, told Bloomberg in an e-mail that the Teslas are available to rent starting at around $500 a day.

Hertz already boasts of a number of upscale models in its fleets under its Dream Cars program. Aside from the Tesla Model S and Roadster EVs, those interested could also rent higher-priced vehicles like Ferrari and Lamborghini models.

In July 2013, Hertz gained final regulatory approval for its $2.3 billion acquisition of Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group Inc. The marriage between Hertz and Dollar Thrifty is expected to boost competition against rental companies Enterprise Holdings Inc. and Avis Budget Group Inc.

Enterprise has three Tesla Model S cars in its Exotic Car Collection fleet since June and is planning to include two more by the end of 2013, spokesman Greg Phillips told Bloomberg in an e-mail. The cars could be rented for around $300 to $500 per day.
