National Car Rental was founded by 24 independent rental agents in 1947. Since then, the company has grown from 60 locations in the United States to over 2,000 locations worldwide. National is owned by Enterprise Holdings, which also owns Enterprise Rent A Car and Alamo Rent A Car. The company headquarters is based in Clayton, Missouri. Enterprise Holdings brands are synonymous with customer service excellence and have been the subject of numerous articles and other publications, including the Harvard Business Review.

The ability for customers on time sensitive schedules to quickly choose their own vehicles is something that sets National apart from competitors. The company was the first in the industry to launch a comprehensive frequent-renter program, called The Emerald Club. This program allows members the ability to bypass rental counters and move right to the lot and be able to select a car of their choosing, as long as they reserve a midsize car.
National Car Rental offers customers a large selection of rental cars including; full-size, economy class, convertibles, SUVs, minivans, pickup trucks, cargo vans and 15 passenger vans. The company also provides a range of mobility devices for customers with disabilities. Hand controls, spinner knobs and pedal extenders are available at no additional charge. National and Alamo are operating one of the largest fuel-efficient car fleets in the world. Together the companies offer more than 440,000 vehicles that achieve EPA highway mileage of 28 mpg or better.
Members of the military who are traveling on leisure are offered discounted rates; frequent traveler benefits with National's major airline partners and military family members with dependent identification are also eligible for leisure rates.
National and Alamo are involved with community outreach and place high emphasis on social responsibility. The company maintains national and local partnerships with leading charitable, civic, minority and women's organizations in order to be as inclusive and welcoming for employees, customers and suppliers. In 1982, company founder Jack C. Taylor created a charitable foundation that allows National and Alamo to give back to the communities which they are part of. Since its creation, the foundation has donated more than $100 million to numerous non-profit organizations in local communities worldwide.
