"It is an honor to be named one of the most recommended brands in America by
women, whom are extremely influential in today's consumer market," commented
Mark P. Frissora, Hertz Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "WomenCertified
Inc. is the leading women's research company in America, and having their
Women's Choice Award seal on the Hertz brand name is a testament to our
continued focus on providing our customers the best travel experience with
superior customer service."
The WomenCertified Consumer Audit begins with sending a survey to up to
100,000 female consumers and further validates the scoring through a joint
survey partnership with travAlliancemedia, which then distributes the survey
to its database of approximately 60,000 travel agents. When a company bears
the Women's Choice Award seal, it serves as a beacon in identifying brands
women recognize, trust and recommend. In a national survey, nine out of 10
women say they will "definitely" trust a brand or business if it carries the
Women's Choice Award seal.
WomenCertified, Inc. is the home of the Women's Choice Award and set the
foundation for the research process to determine brands and businesses that
qualify for the Women's Choice Award, which is the source for recommended
products and brands.
