Car rental story originated in Nebraska (USA), where in 1916 the owner of the garage Joey Saunders rented for a fee one of its existing cars. Joey secured to the front left wheel odometer and take payment at the rate of 10 cents for the 1 mile run.
The first car that passed Joey rent, was Ford Model T, also known as the "Tin Lizzie." This is the first car in the world, which was issued one million copies. Also it was the first "world" car. He produced not only in the U.S. but also in Germany, the UK, France and Austria. Was produced from 1908 to 1927. He had a low cost. This is due to the fact that this is the first car to be built on the conveyor, while the other cars were going to hand.
Saunders Company successfully developed. For 9 years, he has opened 24 stations in different states. Average price continued to be 10 cents for 1 mile. However, from 1929 to 1933 in the U.S. was the Great Depression and the company went bankrupt because Joey Saunders unprofitable business.
However, no one has found Saunders benefit from renting a car to rent. In parallel with his company, to develop the company Walter Jacobs, whose story is more successful.
In 1918, Walter began operations with dozens of rental cars in atoparke in the state of Chicago (USA). Later in 1923, Jacobs sold his company to John Hertz, president of Yellow Cab (Today it is known as Hertz). The company's success was due to the fact that the main point of steel were placed at the airport, in the hope that business people need a car.
Today, car rental - an important link for business and leisure travelers. Car rental conditions are different and depend on the company, the country and the car. Due to the fact that most major car rental companies are available at the station in every major airport in every densely populated (and at most large firms and not densely populated) point, car keeps its popularity. After a trip to a car - one of the most comfortable and favorite ways to move the modern man.
