Recognised for excellence in social media and innovations, Hertz received the award for Best Use of Foursquare after the company encouraged its customers to use the social platform by offering discounts to those who checked in at selected Hertz airport locations. Additionally, Hertz won the award for Best Overall Use of Social Media among car rental companies for its increasingly engaging Twitter and Facebook platforms.

“At Hertz we are consistently looking for ways we can improve and excel within the car rental and travel industries,” said Mark Frissora, Hertz Chairman and Chief Executive. “Winning two SMITTY awards this year is truly a testament to the efforts by all of us here at Hertz and it is an honour to have our hard work recognised.”

SMITTY Award winners are chosen by an expert panel including Jason Clampet, Co-founder and Head of Content at Skift; Ashley Perez, Senior Editor, BuzzFeed; and Al Roker, Today Show host.
