Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why did CAA/AMA switch from Hertz to Enterprise, National and Alamo as the preferred car rental partners?
A: We are constantly looking for ways to get the best value for our members. Our contract with Hertz was up for renewal this year so CAA asked a variety of car rental companies to send in their best offers. Enterprise Holdings—the parent company for Enterprise, National and Alamo—was chosen because they have the most affordable rates, the broadest selection of neighborhood and airport locations, excellent exclusive benefits and the highest customer service rating (JD Power award recipient the last six years running).

A: You can book with AMA Travel or direct with Enterprise, National or Alamo car rental:
