National Car Rental was established in 1947 when a group of 24 independent car hire operators with 800 vehicles and 60 locations convened at Chicago's Drake Hotel to create the company. They hoped to broaden their market influence by teaming together - and it worked! National has also become known for several industry firsts including becoming the first car hire company to offer one-way rentals from one city to another.
The internationally recognised brand is known for their expertise in car hire and care for the environment. The company places a huge emphasis on conservation efforts and in 2006 they made a commitment to plant 50 million trees in national forests over the course of 50 years. By 2015 they had already planted 10 million trees in locations across the United States, Canada and Europe.
