Dollar Rent-A-Car was founded in Los Angeles, US, in the year 1965. At present, the car rental company has its headquarters in Estero, Florida and is operating across more than 570 destinations in 61 countries; in the US alone, it covers 260 locations.
Today Dollar Rent-A-Car is the part of Hertz Global Holdings, Inc., which through its subsidiary – the Hertz Corporation, is operating its car rental business through Dollar, Thrifty and Hertz locations!
Cities of Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, and their airports are the top Dollar Rent-A-Car locations in USA.
Dollar Rent-A-Car is quite predominant in the US. Founded by Henry Caruso, Dollar Rent-A-Car was purchased by the company named Chrysler in 1990; the same company also bought Thrifty Car Rental and merged the two companies to form Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group. It was later bought by Hertz Global Holdings in 2012; despite the change in its ownership over the years, just like Thrifty, Dollar Rent-A-Car still works as an entity.
