Get a prescription filled and a rental car in one stop

SHARE Get a prescription filled and a rental car in one stop

You might someday be able to pick up a prescription at Walgreens and drive off in a Hertz rental car in one stop. Hertz Global Holdings recently completed a test of leaving rentals outside drugstores in the Chicago area and in San Antonio, Texas, chicagobusiness.com reports. Customers who rented via the Hertz website or mobile app received a code to unlock a car.

“We had this idea of putting cars in the neighborhood and started looking at different retail outlets that might be suitable,” said Richard Broome, Hertz’s executive vice president of corporate affairs. “Walgreens fit perfectly.”

If Hertz goes ahead with plans for a national rollout, it could be a way to compete with ZipCar, which is owned by rival Avis Budget Group, and Enterprise Inc., which has many of its offices in residential areas.
