Impact of Pandemic on Car Rental Industry

You don’t need to hear it from ACRA (American Car Rental Association)– your business probably has been profoundly and negatively impacted over the last two to three weeks. Cancellations, no-shows, drastic declines in rentals – even lack of physical space to park idled vehicles. Some published estimates indicate that overall domestic rentals have dropped between 50% and 80% month over month – February to March.

What You Can Do To Help Your Industry:

Contact your Senators and Representatives on Capitol Hill and send them a message to “Include the car rental industry in the COVID-19 economic stimulus package”; be sure to note your business location and number of employees.

To find your Senators: www.senate.gov To find your Representative: www.house.gov

For the House, enter your zip code and you will be directed to the legislators’ websites; ACRA suggests you send a message, rather than call, as most Hill offices with have answering machines on at this point. ACRA Actions
