Hertz for Heroes
A Partnership Program (The Hertz Corporation & NDTA)

*As of July 1, 2012, NDTA is out of vouchers.  Thank you for your support of this program!


Why did Hertz offer FREE cars to our troops returning from Iraq?

The idea began with the company's own employees who had served in the military and who wanted to give back to those who have fought so hard for our country.   Together, we can all celebrate their homecoming and say THANK YOU!  Let our troops know we are grateful for their bravery, sacrifice, and service..

Who received the rental car vouchers?

The vouchers were intended for returning active duty servicemen or servicewomen from Kuwait, Iraq, and Afghanistan, who have served our country so valiantly. 

What type of rental car will be given away?

Hertz gave away 40,000 vouchers. Each one is good for a 3-day consecutive weekend rental on a midsize car at any corporate (participating) Hertz airport or neighborhood location in the United States.  There will be no blackout dates, but redemption will be subject to car availability.  Please refer to voucher for terms and conditions.

When does the offer expire?

Vouchers are good for 18 months, and will expire on June 30, 2013.

Are the vouchers transferrable?

Yes.  They are printed on security paper but are not restricted to the recipient – so they can certainly be used by another traveler.  Unfortunately, if they are lost, we cannot replace them.

What are the age restrictions?

Active Duty Military 18 years of age and above are eligible for this program with the presentation of their Active Duty Military ID Card at the rental counter.  If the voucher is transferred to a non-Active Duty person, the age requirement is 20.

I am a Military Member.  How do I receive a free rental?

Hertz has sent all 40,000 vouchers, intended for veterans who have recently returned from Iraq and Afghanistan, to NDTA for distribution.  NDTA has given away all the vouchers. Many of those that didn't get to soldiers currently serving in the AOR went to Warrior Transition Units (WTUs) in the State.  Thank you for supporting our recently returned or wounded warriors! 

What rentals will qualify for contributing towards this program?

Every completed transaction helped Hertz & NDTA reach the goal of providing 40,000 free rentals.  All transactions – from, at any Hertz Rental Counter, through Hertz phone reservations, through social media, through travel agents, through all channels – all qualified. 

In addition, transactions from Hertz on Demand, Hertz Equipment Rental, Hertz Car Sales, and Hertz Entertainment Services were included.  The entire company is behind the effort.


What part of my rental actually goes towards this benefit?
For every transaction made through 12/31/11, Hertz donated 1% of proceeds towards our goal of 40,000 free weekend rentals.  We look forward to serving our troops, after all they’ve done to support us.


NDTA is proud to partner with Hertz for the benefit of our troops.

NDTA assisted with the distribution of vouchers through various military channels and organizations.
