How do you start a rental car company?
The two most important things you need to start a car rental is:. 1. Cars 2. Insurance. The insurance for car rental is far higher than the standard insurance, so get pricing from various companies.. Hire a car yourself to understand the process, and use the rental contract that you get from the company to base your own contract on.. Choose your target market, and advertise to them. You do learn from trial and error (been in the trade for 10 years, and still learn all the time!)

Questions with 'should the same positioning strategies be used by Hertz the leading national car rental company and a regional rental car company'?
Not quite the same. Hertz is a global company so its strategies can vary from a national or regional that are only going to focus on those areas.. their clients of Hertz and a national and regional company are going to be sometimes the same and here the thing is to differentiate yourself providing a more personalize service than a global company like Hertz or have for example a better support or customer service or discounts, or new functionalities on their website (take a look at: http://www.rentspain.com/) ... There are many possibilities to compete with a large car rental company!
Why do car rental companies sell their cars?
Answer . What I heard is that they don't want to deal with cars older than 3-4 years because they'll have to pay for repairs. Therefore, the only way to always have new cars is to sell the old ones. . Rental companies must circulate 1-2 years to keep current with what the manufactures make. All rental compaies MUST purchase a certain amount of NEW manufactured cars- there fore they must get rid of the 'older ones' to dealerships to make room for that new stock. To re-coup the purchase costs, the sell the higher miles ones (typically 10-40k miles). (about 50-70% of cars you see at dealerships are purchased rental cars). As for 'not wanting to pay for repairs' .... rental companies DO make repairs. The ones they do not is if the total estimate of the damage exceeds the value of the car.. -jsparkles
What is the best car rental company?
I don't think there is any One best car company. I think thebest car rental company is the company that gives you the bestrate, on the vehicle that you want for that particular rental.Here's an idea of how to find the best car rental rate. Go to abooking site, like Carzonrent, kayak,Bus moves and check thecity, dates, times and car sizes that you are looking for. If thereis an option to check both on airport and off airport, do that.Once you find the cheapest company, book the car (as long as it'snot prepaid... if you have to give your credit card number, don'tbook yet!). Go to that particular company's website directly, first, and see ifthey have any specials that will help you get the rate even cheaperthan the booking site. Try and use a discount code or coupon if youhave one. If you find a cheaper rate, you can book it and then goback and cancel the reservation that you made on the booking site.If you couldn't find anything cheaper, then you know you've foundthe cheapest car rental for the dates you were looking for.

Where rental car companies buy their cars from?
Rental car companies buy their fleets brand new from the manufacturer, usually as a pre-order. Usually they are only kept for a year or so before being removed from the fleet. Most used rental cars are sold on the used car market, either directly (such as Enterprise Car Sales), or to car dealerships. The actual models that are available for rental will vary a great deal from location to location. Typically, cars are purchased based on price rather than options and trim lines (with the exception that all rental cars in the United States tend to be automatics). So there can be some variation even within models. For example, the rental car branch I work for has several Ford Focuses in its inventory. One of them has a sport package, with leather seats. Most of the others are a standard option package, with upholstery seats and electric windows/door locks. One is the base model, with manual window cranks and door locks. Some manufacturers, such as Chevy, make a special "fleet" model of their cars that are intended for use in rental fleets. They are not available for purchase by the general public. These cars have certain options (such as air conditioning and automatic transmissions) that are standard rental car requirements, but may lack other features common to that trim line (such as sportier wheels, a bigger engine, or a premium stereo). The price sensitivity is one reason many rental fleets are composed of domestic cars, such as Ford, GM, and Chrysler. These cars tend to be less expensive. You may find other marques mixed in with the domestics -- some companies will have Hondas, Toyotas, and Nissans commonly. Kias and Hyundais, and the occasional Saturn or Suzuki, are also typical because of their lower cost.

What car rental company is the best?
This is just a matter of personal opinion. Here is a sample checklist when you are looking for car rentalcompanies: 1. Do a background check on the company. How longhave they been operating? Do they have a corporate office or didyou pick up the car at some nameless neighborhood? 2. Check their fleet. Reputable rental companieswill allow you to choose from their fleet. Be sure to them your carpreference, e.g. car brand, year and model, manual or automatictransmission, etc. 3. Check if the contract includes car insurance. Self-drive rental means higher insurance risk and participationfee, while hiring a chauffeur or driver decreases your insurancerisk. Read through their policy carefully and make sure youunderstand them to avoid paying hidden fees. 4. Check if they have proper customer servicesupport , which means they must have, among others, 24/7customer service hotline, a website, an online reservation system,a social media presence/support, and on-call drivers. This is asample of a car rental online reservation system. 5. Check for online promos. Reputable and trustedcar rental companies periodically offer promos as a reward to theirloyal and frequent customers. 6. Ask for a little extra in their service. If youhave been renting a car from the same company, don't be embarassedto ask for a discount. Your bargaining power increases with thelength of your car rental. If the car rental company passes all six items, then it is safe tosay that you are renting from a reputable company. So go ahead andenjoy your trip!

Can you use your car insurance for rental car?
Yes, I would verify this with your agent though. Yes. You may be covered by either, your credit card company or your insurance carrier. Under these circumstances, you do not have to purchase an additional car insurance coverage from your car rental company. But you always have to check your information in advance. Next Answer: My professional observation has been that AAA is the only company that includes rental cars comprehensively in its policies. Additionally, some companies only cover partial liability on rentals, and/or do not cover both parties. One significant advantage to the damage insurance that a rental company offers is that the full coverage absolves you of any liability or deductible, and is not reported to your insurance company. Thus, your rates will not be affected if you get into an accident while driving a rental car. This may not be true for all companies and all types of coverage. Read your contract and ask your agent if you're not sure. Definitely check with your insurance carrier about your particular policy type.

Where do rental companies sale their cars?
I know that Enterprise keeps the top 5% of their vehicles for direct resale at Enterprise Car Sales locations (there is also a website where you can search for particular cars across the nation). I cannot speak for other agencies, but in general fleet cars are auctioned and wind up at various used car dealerships. They are not necessarily high-mileage cars, since cars will be sold at times when an optimal price can be obtained, depending on market conditions for used cars. I have seen cars with as little as 1,000 miles on them be sold out of the fleet, because the market price is hot at the time. In the United States, if you run a background check on a used car (such as AutoCheck), the report will state "FLEET" if the car has previously been part of a rental fleet or a corporate vehicle fleet. Such cars are not necessarily inferior, since they will (for the most part -- depending on the company and the branch) have been maintained on a regular schedule (new cars nag you when they need oil changes and such). In Enterprise's case, the best condition cars will be at their direct sale locations (Enterprise Car Sales). I do not know how other agencies handle their resales.
