Also, I just realized, my Executive Elite printout showed a huge number of rentals YTD, far more than required for PC, so maybe that's why.

I think that might be the case....officially they told me that my national level is the same as 5*...has national been the cheapest for you over hertz? i thought they were expensive...

Truth is, most of the time, neither National nor Hertz are the cheapest.  Although with National you are safe with a mid-size and the Executive Selection area in most airports.

Ya pretty awesome.... It gives $5 a day for up to $25
so youre telling me that u were supposed to pay $67 total and with the coupon it moved it down $20 . that would mean each day (4 days im guessing - dec 1 - 5) comes out to about $16 before the coupon and after the coupon only $11.
so how bout u share with us where u found such a rate?

By Avis
MUC 1 day, smallest car @ 40.99 euro, got mercedes C200.
(Would have driven off with Panamera if it were available)
Had to nudge a bit.

------------------------

Following rental I had too much luggage and people, so I couldn't risk taking a smaller car.

GVV (French part Geneva airport), 11 days, rented standard @ $540, and got a BMW 5.

Trick: @ this location (and a lot of european locations in general,) they only have automatics in small, intermediate, and luxury (level names aren't exactly the same as in the USA), so I booked standard (one level above intermediate, and made them add automatic on the reservation.
They wanted to downgrade me, but hit a wall.
All was left was upgrading me.

@ first they told me nothing is available.
Later they "found" one, but would take 1 hour to prepare it.

Suddenly 10 mins later it was there.

Best part is there was no shtick I just called in and that is what I got! Tomorrow I am going to be picking up a car for the rest of Chanukah and as of now my estimated total is $120 (this is Xmas weekend!) I did reserve it a while ago tho.....
