The Hertz Corporation

Case No. 20-11218


Case Background

On May 22, 2020, The Hertz Corporation (“Hertz” or the “Company”) and certain of its U.S. and Canadian subsidiaries and affiliates filed voluntary petitions for reorganization under Chapter 11 in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.

The impact of COVID-19 on travel demand was sudden and dramatic. The reorganization process will provide Hertz with the time to put in place a new, stronger financial foundation to move successfully through the pandemic and best position the Company for the future, while continuing normal business operations.

All of Hertz’s businesses globally, including its Hertz, Dollar, Thrifty, Firefly, Hertz Car Sales, and Donlen subsidiaries, are open and serving customers. All reservations, promotional offers, vouchers, customer and loyalty programs, including rewards points, are expected to continue as usual. 

Hertz’s principal international operating regions, including Europe, Australia and New Zealand are not included in the U.S. Chapter 11 proceedings and are continuing normal operations. In addition, Hertz’s franchised locations, which are not owned by the Company, also are not included in the Chapter 11 proceedings and are continuing normal operations.
