Agreement Between AAA and Hertz Now Allows Members to Rent Thrifty and Dollar Rental Cars

Dollar & Thrifty Brand LogosHertz continues to better itself in order to provide its consumers with more options. That being said, Hertz also wants to make sure that it offers its partner’s consumers a lot of options as well. Take the new partnership between Hertz and AAA. Now AAA members can enjoy discounts on Thrifty Car Rental and Dollar Rent A Car rentals thanks to AAA’s partnership with Hertz.

This is great news for AAA’s large 53 million member user base. Also as part of this deal, AAA members will also get free in-car GPS products with all of their rentals. Once again, this is all made possible due to the fact that Hertz finally completed its acquisition of the Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group from back in 2012. Now, consumers are finally starting to enjoy the benefits of this new acquisition.

Mark P. Frissora, who is the Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Hertz, said that AAA is a huge part of the travel experience for many people. Some of its members won’t even consider traveling without an AAA membership. He went on to say that Hertz has enjoyed a very long partnership with AAA, and the two companies see no reason why they should end that now.

Frissora added that Hertz wants to celebrate the renewal of this partnership by adding both Thrifty and Dollar car rentals to the current agreement the company has with AAA. This offers a number of benefits for members of AAA, and it helps show Hertz’s commitment to its partners.

Marshall L. Doney, who is the Chief Operating Officer and Senior Executive Vice President of AAA, said that Hertz and AAA have had a partnership agreement for the past two decades. Thus, AAA is extremely happy to announce that it has expanded its partnership with Hertz yet again. This time, however, the partnership includes rentals from Thrifty and Dollar. This gives AAA members even more options when trying to save money. In short, this is yet another way that AAA members can save money when traveling.

Charles Coniglio, who is the current Vice President of Marketing for Hertz, said that AAA is a very important part of many people’s travel experiences. This goes double when people are traveling by car. People want a name that they can trust, and AAA is that name. Hertz is extremely happy to stay a part of the AAA family. By partnering with Hertz, AAA members can now enjoy even bigger discounts by renting from Dollar Thrifty. This is just something extra that AAA members get on top of all of the other great features they enjoy.

AAA currently runs one of the biggest travel agency networks in all of North America. Due to its unique partnerships with other companies, AAA members enjoy a number of great discounts. All of the AAA services can be used by both people who are a member of AAA and those who aren’t. However, those who are members enjoy a number of special incentives and rewards for their membership. People can sign up with AAA by visiting its website.
