Hertz’s rental legacy dates back to the early days of the American automotive industry. Here are a few significant points in the company’s timeline.
It all started in 1918. Walter Jacobs, at age 22, rented out 12 Model T automobiles from a shop in Chicago. Jacobs sold the shop to John D. Hertz in 1923. Within two years, the company generated $1 million in annual revenue.
Hertz started renting vehicles at train stations in 1926, and at Chicago Midway International Airport in 1932.
Its first European location opened in France in 1950. Today, the company has more than 10,000 locations worldwide.
