If You Put A “Not Stolen” Sign On A Hertz Rental Car, What Will Happen?

Hertz has a program where they’ll provide a ‘wrap’ on your rental car with advance notice.

Let the good times roll on any occasion. Whether you’re planning a night out on the town for a big birthday; looking to arrive in style for your bachelorette party; or celebrating a milestone anniversary, go celebrate your next exciting moment with a custom-wrapped ride just for you.

You can select from one of their existing templates or you can pick a customized message. (HT: J.W.)

Reserve your rental and then fill out the request form with your preferred wrap. They say it will take them 3-5 business days to respond.

I’d love to hear from anyone that does this: what is your experience like? And are there custom messages that Hertz will reject…? (Surely there are many!)

And would a banner saying your vehicle hasn’t been stolen keep Hertz from reporting it stolen? Would the police believe the car’s wrap? Why do the police believe Hertz anymore, anyway?

  1. What kind of dumbazzez they got running that place. Who thought this would be a good idea. Why not fix the problem or is that to obvious.

  2. Gary, I think you should test this one out personally in the name of science. Or better yet, convince TPG to do it since they have additional staff to pay for bail should something go awry.

  3. I was a Hertz Gold Member for years. Now this is a bad PR joke. I feel for all of those that got arrested.
