It’s a tough time to be a rental car company. Record low demand has left a massive unused inventory on their lot and companies like Hertz are selling that inventory as fast and cheap as they can. Buying a heavily discounted luxury rental car could be a great way to get into a car you’ve might have otherwise been unable to afford.
Hertz’s rental car sell off is a key part of their current attempts to survive – especially after their failed attempts to float a billion dollars of new stock despite having filed for bankruptcy. The travel slowdown has been especially hard on rental car companies who often have heavily leveraged vehicle fleets sitting at airport garages. Now those car are largely unused, collecting dust, and Hertz is trying move as many of them as they can – and that means deep discounts. Really deep.
This includes their Luxury Rental Car collection includes cars from companies like BMW, Cadillac (they have a lot of these…), Audi, Jaguar, LandRover, Infiti, Mercedes Benz, and Buick (if you consider them a luxury car…). We’ve highlighted a few of these deals below, and where possible compared them to a similar model sold by Hertz competitor, Enterprise Rental Car.
In most cases, Hertz’s prices were better.
Despite their financial situation, Hertz will still provide financing for the vehicle you purchase, or you can bring your own – and they will deliver the car for free if you live with 100 miles of the car you are buying.
Hertz is selling this car, below, for about $2.5k cheaper than a similar car being sold by Enterprise Rental Car Sales here and well below Kelly Blue Book.
This Jaguar XE 25t is also being sold below Kelly Blue Book prices at a flat, no-haggle price of $22k even. It’s located in Scottsdale, AZ and has around 25k miles on it.
This 2019 Infiniti QX60 has 23,500 miles on it and is being sold by Hertz for just under $26k. A similar model, with 42k miles on is being sold by Enterprise Rent a Car for a shade under $25k. In other words, Hertz appears to have the better deal again.
Hertz will sell you a low mileage A-class Mercedes for just under $27k. The car, pictured below, is located in Phoenix
