Diamonds are forever
When Bond is renting a car in Las Vegas for him and Tiffany Case, he turns to the car rental company Hertz in Diamonds are Forever. He waits for Tiffany just outside the Hertz office. Although this is not the first time that Bond has rented a car, it is the first time that a rental car company featured rather prominently in one of the films. In Dr. No Bond drives up to Miss Taro in a rented blue Sunbeam Alpine. This rental car was however organized by Bond's hotel, where he also receives the keys, and an car rental office is never seen in the film.
In Diamonds are Forever, the Hertz office was located at No. 2310 South Las Vegas Boulevard, just opposite the Holiday Motel and Bagdad Inn. Bond's rental car in the film is a Ford Galaxy 500.
Hertz is an American company that was founded in 1918 and is the largest car rental company in the world.

When Q demonstrates Bond's new phone, part of the Avis rental form is seen. This form is part of the "Bond in Motion" exhibition that currently tours the world. The Avis form, as well as Q's jacket from the film and a model of the BMW crashing into the Avis office, is part of the exhibition and could be seen on display at the London exhibition in 2014.
However, where Melina Havlock rented her Citroën 2CV in For Your Eyes Only still remains a mystery.
