Impact of COVID-19 on Hertz Global Holdings - (COVID-19) Case Study

Recent months have been unprecedented in the tourism sector.Travel restrictions, flight suspensions, falling consumer confidence and a slew of negative press are just some of the issues companies are having to contend with.

Car rental has suffered as a result of significantly reduced air passenger traffic and the pandemic has exposed structural issues at Hertz.

Key Highlights
- The various travel restrictions and lockdowns implemented across the world have had a serious impact on the car rental industry, due to the significant drop in the number of travellers and, more particularly, the decrease in air passenger traffic.
- Hertz’s revenues dropped by 73% in April YOY and the company announced negative results for Q1 2020.
- The used car market is closely linked to the car rental industry and the decrease in demand for second-hand vehicles caused a severe devaluation of the company’s whole fleet in the United States, hurting the group’s finances.

- This case study looks at how the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting Hertz and assesses the company’s response.
