There are many things to consider when renting a car, such as function and value, but cleanliness is key. Now more than ever, you should feel confident that cleanliness and sanitation are taken seriously. That’s where AAA and Hertz come in. Whether you’re planning a camping excursion, navigating a road trip or heading home on a school break, you can count on AAA and Hertz for member benefits, savings and to keep you safe with Hertz Gold Standard Clean.

Hertz Gold Standard Clean

The Hertz car rental process is now easier and cleaner, with extra sanitation measures. Hertz team members sanitize all categories of vehicles — compact to SUVs and premium car rentals — before applying the Hertz Gold Standard Clean seal, so you can be assured that no one has accessed the car after a cleaning.
“One of the top concerns in our current environment is cleanliness and safety, and Hertz is proud to be at the forefront of this in the car rental industry by introducing Hertz Gold Standard Clean," said Tania Clasen, vice president of Strategic Alliances & Partnerships for Hertz. "If you happen to be traveling, we’re here for your peace of mind because every vehicle is sealed after undergoing a 15-point cleaning and sanitization process that follows CDC guidelines. We seal the vehicle upon completion of the cleaning and disinfecting process for the traveler’s protection.”
“Hertz Gold Standard Clean is available nationwide,” she added.
Choosing one of the most dependable car rental companies can save you money and provide a safer, faster and easier rental experience. AAA and Hertz also can help you with exclusive car rental savings and benefits that will make the process a cinch, including a reduced fee for GPS, complimentary extra driver, and free use of one child, infant or booster seat. And Hertz rental advantages don’t stop there. Hertz has been ranked No.1 in Customer Satisfaction for Rental Cars by J.D. Power for two years in a row. Hertz also received top honors in the categories of reservation process, pick-up process and rental car, which includes satisfaction with the overall vehicle and its cleanliness.
