Back in mid-2008 Hertz released a pretty useful mobile website that I used once to book a car on the go. Now almost 2 years later they just released a new BlackBerry app to make things even easier for last minute car rental reservations. The free app lets you easily make a reservation or view current reservation. Currently the app does not support the Storm but they are working on that along with multilingual support and the ability to modify a reservation.
Hertz is available at the BlackBerry App World for free download. Use the link below to get routed to it over the air to download today.
