About Dollar Car Rental

We continue to serve customers at our locations. Learn more about our parent company’s financial reorganization.

Dollar Car Rental was founded in 1965 by Henry J. Caruso as Dollar Rent A Car. Dollar now operates globally as a well-recognized brand in the rental car industry and is a subsidiary of The Hertz Corporation, headquartered in Estero, Florida.

The foundation of Dollar Car Rental is built on a philosophy of exceptional customer service. Our attention to customer service and our high quality fleet of rental vehicles helps make both leisure vacation travel and business travel easier for our customers.

Our special rental car offers and low everyday rates assist you in keeping your travel plans within your budget. Dollar Car Rental has convenient national and worldwide car rental locations to service you. In addition, our Dollar Express Rewards program offers additional benefits to make your current travel plans easier and helps you earn rewards towards future rentals as well!

On-Airport and Neighborhood Rental Car Locations

Dollar Car Rental has neighborhood and on-airport car rental locations in all major cities throughout the United States. The name Dollar Car Rental has become synonymous with value and convenience.

Airbags

All car rentals at Dollar locations are equipped with airbags. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recommends that children under 12 years of age should be buckled in the back seat. Also, rear-facing infant seats should never be placed in the front seat of a vehicle with a front passenger-side airbag.

Dollar Car Rental offers child safety seats, both toddler and infant, for rent when you book on dollar.com. For additional details, you can contact the Dollar location at which you have reserved your car.
