    Rental car company Hertz has filed for bankruptcy, unable to withstand the COVID-19 pandemic that has crippled global travel

    Rental car company Hertz has filed for bankruptcy, unable to withstand the COVID-19 pandemic that has crippled global travel


    The Florida-based company's lenders were unwilling to grant it another extension on its auto lease debt payments past a Friday deadline, triggering the filing in US Bankruptcy Court.

    Starting in mid-March, the company lost all revenue when travel shut down because of the pandemic, and it started missing payments in April.
