My new employer prefers Hertz over National. I have Gold Plus and lately they keep emailing me an offer to upgrade to President’s Circle for $450 ($250 for Five Star members).
The stated benefits are:
- 25% bonus on Hertz Gold Plus Rewards® points
- 600 Bonus Hertz Gold Plus Rewards points after every
15 rentals – equivalent to a free day
- Guaranteed reservations
- Guaranteed one-car-class upgrade
- Preferred parking and more!
The only benefits that would matter much to me are the bonus points, but that would take a whole lot of rentals to make any sense. Thankfully I am not a US domestic road warrior. And my personal rentals are almost always Priceline/Costco/Capital One.
Am I missing something? Has anyone found good value out of this? Perhaps there is a relatively low break-even if bonus point rentals will be in astronomically priced markets like New York.
