The survey, published by Forrester in the report, The Customer Experience Index, 2014, is based on online responses from more than 7,500 U.S. consumers.

"At National, we work hard to make things easy, efficient and convenient for our customers and to provide them with an enjoyable rental experience," said Rob Connors, assistant vice president of brand marketing at National Car Rental.

Connors noted that, in November 2013, National also was recognized as the highest-ranked car rental brand in the J.D. Power 2013 North American Rental Car Satisfaction StudySM. The study, which surveyed leisure and business travelers who rented vehicles at North American airports, ranked National Car Rental highest in customer satisfaction.
