NAPLES — Car-rental giant Hertz says it will cut car-rental rates in Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America in January by as much as 25%.

The lower fares overseas are in contrast to the U.S., where Hertz said last week it plans to raise car-rental rates by an undisclosed amount. Canada is not included in the January discount, either.

“For bookings made between Jan. 2 until Jan. 30, customers will enjoy discounts up to 25% for qualifying domestic or outbound rentals in Europe and the Middle East, up to 20% for Asia and 15% in Latin America,” Hertz says in a statement.

Southwest Florida-based Hertz operates the Hertz, Dollar, Thrifty and Firefly car rental brands in more than 11,000 corporate and licensee locations throughout 140 countries. Hertz is the largest airport car-rental company with more than 1,700 airport locations in the U.S. and more than 1,300 airport locations internationally.
