At the airport, the 50% off is valid on all car classes, including Hertz’s popular Fun, Green and Prestige Collections. Just mention Promotion Code (PC#) 104182 at time of reservation. At Hertz Local Edition locations, where Hertz offers pick up and delivery service, this offer is good on Economy through Full-size car classes and Midsize SUVs.

“As we head into Memorial Day weekend and begin the summer travel season, we are pleased to offer this special savings to Hertz customers,” said Frank Camacho, Hertz Staff Vice President, Marketing. “Available for rentals at Hertz airport and Local Edition locations, customers can rest assured that they will be driving one of the youngest fleets in the industry and will be able to get the products and services they need for their trip, including NeverLost® and SIRIUS Satellite Radio.”
