Auto Rental & Leasing

Auto Rental & Leasing

Overview

The 2,400 auto rental and leasing companies in the US provide vehicles for short-term or long-term use. Rentals and leases typically involve passenger cars or trucks. Companies may also provide the use of vans, sport utility vehicles, luxury cars, limousines, or hearses. Some companies lease used vehicles. While large rental companies own thousands of individual locations worldwide, they also license brand names to independent operators.

Dependence on the Travel Industry

Air travel is a key driver for car rental volume.
