it does occasionally. Just not always. I almost rented EWR-BOS OCT9 for $65. (he eneded up flying out of EWR). Always check more than one location - JFK was much  more, EWR &LGA were the same...

Also you can use it through Hertz.ca/.co.il etc. it gave me unlimited milage on the same rental the US site wanted $.25 per mile

All I'm saying is that on their website it clearly states that per mile charge may apply for oone way rentals

for that BOS-EWR, both gave me some classes with unlimited milage and some without. The difference was that the Canadian site showed lower classes with unlimited milage.

I believe some countries are better than Canada (something about it being illegal to charge OW fees?). Anyone have a more specific run down of the websites?

you can not add a second driver on reservation AFAIK. and if the other driver is usaa then u can add him free of charge
even though he doesn't need to be added, I would add him just for problem sake and insurance wise.

one thing i cant seem to understand is, how come its telling me in the price that its one day + 1 hour. i am doing from 10 - 10. so that adding like $35 . therefore when u get to counter tell them to take it off.
secondly if u rent thru hertz France itll give u the $108 (80 EUR) unlim mileage, and including Liability and LDW and all taxes in that rate

Ye but with chile u it doesnt include liability and LDW.  With france it does.
And now if u move the return back an hr itll be cheaper.

Under which country would it be best to reserve in regards to best pricing and receiving some part of the insurance for free?
Also, is it a risk to switch countries? I'm renting under my hertz gold account...
Thanks.

not so sure exactly but if you rent from a europian country like france, you might have to pay the 1st $500 if something happens  (as it is the policy in france rentals)

usually -not always- south america will be the cheapest and europian or arab countries will give you full insurance, sometimes it would be cheaper south america and paying for insurance then europian countries.
Also, is it a risk to switch countries? I'm renting under my hertz gold account...
its not a risk, i confirmed it with them and you can always say you it was reserved in that country.

used a voucher w/o a problem at the king david branch today....w/ an agent you can get the shabbat discount keep in mind you still pay for insurance for the day...verify your WMC still covers israel so you don't have any issues but yes you can use it to waive the CDW but are legally required to buy the liability coverage but you still save every day w/ WMC...if you are 23 or older you shouldn't have an issue AFAIK

that shouldn't be too hard. log onto hertz.com and search your dates with usaa cdp code! And if its too expensive then change the country.

I still never understood people that post for help on a rental when they know which company and cdp code they want especially when they can't rent anywhere else (18-20 yr olds).

I was thinking, if you rent for a month they will almost always give you a nice upgrade, and a week into the month return it.

if u rent for a week and return in middle  they will change the rate to a daily rate and same with monthly rental if u return a week into the rental they will charge u whatever the weekly rate is.
but if u return early on a weekend the the rate is the same.

IIRC, this is because liability insurance is statutorily required in Canada. the rental agency must cover your liability insurance. Thus, it has already been included in the cost of the rental

not in my case, they put in the notes of my account that i need a actual card. so i got a USAA debit card.
your case i must admit is quite rare, but in general they dont ask, if they do then usually Membership # and screenshot is good enough, but again depends on the location.

Last time I called USAA they just said to give them your member number.
If you have an issue maybe just give USAA a call when your at the branch and let the rep. Verify?

I rented at LGA (this past pesach) using USAA and the rep asked for proof of membership. I pulled out the e-mail with my membership number on it plus the e-mail I got from usaa verifying that all I need to show is my membership number to rent. she didn't want to accept it so I told her to call usaa and verify that I'm a member. she wrote down my membership number and the phone number for usaa and then gave me the car. I doubt she actually called. a little while later I called usaa to complain about the seemingly miscommunication between hertz and usaa. the csr told me that I am not eligible to use the usaa corporate since I'm not a banking or insurance costumer. I have since opened a free usaa checking account (minimum $25 opening deposit) and have not had any problems renting-just show the debit card if asked

hertz has a number just for USAA members not sure what it is though you can always call that number and they pick up right away and they will talk to the hertz repr.
all it takes is $25 5 min. online and there's no inactivity fee or monthly fees min bal. etc.
in case you really care about the $25 you can take it out for free at any ATM.

+1. i rented at LGA on thursday and car was waiting all ready, and JFK on friday and didnt need proof. CAK on today and didnt need proof.

just a precaution that i want to note to those that dont do it already; make sure to check your car for scratches or dents if your returning it in JFK (or in general). i never had an issue with hertz and noone ever checked the car even but when i rented in LGA, apparently the car had a camouflaged dent which i didnt realize until pointed out at JFK (on return) and i had to file a claim and im waiting a response.

I recently rented with hertz. Put in USAA used the SA website when they asked for address I just put in my address and left the country as SA (you can't change it) I had a credit card attached to my account (chase sapphire-no foreign fees-the charge is in rand) so I was able to pre-pay.
I had no problems renting.

Someone I know went the next day with same kind of reservation and was told he can't rent.

im not sure what u mean by "whats wrong". if they accept that rate then good for you but some locations actually will ask for proof of ticket that you came from there, like JFK or brooklyn as stated in this thread. - the only thing is, that you shouldnt need proof because you shouldnt have to carry your ticket with u for the days following your flight in case you want to rent!
and since so many people (frum jews) are using this method in NY area so they figure its not true and they ask for proof.

From Thursday afternoon is considered a weekend day till Monday and sometimes - YLMV - you'll get a cheaper rate by reserving through Sunday/Monday (and u can return it Friday and usually get that rate)

If they give you the same price then ask them when the weekend starts and if they say thurs than tell them it's cheaper on Friday and ask them to adjust it.

usually its only from south american country and im still figuring it out all the way but i dont think it has to do with CDP code at all and i kno its for sure with the rate code "ADP" which again, only works on South American country

Exactly, thats whats happening.
Its only giving me weekend rate starting friday and not thursday.
i found that in many cases (i.e YMMV) if you book the weekend rate, FRI-SAT and reserve it. and then simply edit the COMPLETED reservation to thursday after 12pm it gives you the weekend rate, i used to take my car for mivtzoyim thursday afternoon to friday, but i recall sometimes it changed easier making the reservation thursday - SAT, and just returning early.
calling is usually reserved in my mind for when these computer gliches dont work..
a simple, "hi i got the weekend reservation for friday at 20$, the weekend rate starts on thursay 12pm right? ok so i'd like to

NP.  May as well add the pc code to the reservation.  Also, as I'm older now and have no idea, does Priceline allow underage renters?  I've found Priceline useful when the rates are outrageous from 'traditional' channels (or at least you know the 'market' for the period, and can know immediately if your bid represents a savings).

Hertz allows 20 year olds to rent without using USAA, i.e. Yeshiva Student Assiciation CDP# 1876837 with PC# 144314 Will also waive the underage fees.

You are correct theres no real need to use a corporate because with that PC you can wave the underage fee but USAA is the cheapest corporate for hertz and besides, with USAA you can add a different PC # to take off a few more $ and this deal dosent work with any other CDP. so that is why the suggestion is to search yourself as there arent too many options of websites to search.
Title: Re: Hertz Master Thread
Post by: hocker on February 15, 2012, 09:40:49 PM
It's true the PC# is what's removing the underage but the CDP# does take off an additional 10%.

I wouldn't say USAA is the cheapest Hertz corporate, while they do offer 11% while all other's offer 10%, many times their base rate is more expensive than other cdp's. I know this being that I book at least 2 cars a day for other people.

While your point that using this cdp and pc won't allow you to use another PC is true, if you're over 25 there's no difference. Also many people renting once or twice don't want to go thru the hassle of signing up for USAA, and depositing $25.

i rent often from hertz with usaa and i can tell you that their base rate is usually never higher than other cdp (maybe "hertz global sale" which gives 20% from SA) but otherwise if ur under 20 thats the best route to go if u want to add other discounts as well, and its worth the few min, not really a hastle, to open usaa

Points unless there is a promotion with a mileage program (hertz points are worth about 10 cpp as you can redeem 500 for a premium car, which is usually worth more then $50. And for one way rentals points can be worth alot more then that)

I know it has been discussed, if I rent in Israel from hertz (through an agent) can I at least get credit for year to date rentals toward status?

Surprisingly, I did get 1300 points last year for a 2 week rental when they had the 100 point per day bonus going on even though it was through an agent.

Currently Hertz has a promo for 2X miles on partners, so if I give my CO ff# then I will receive 150 miles per day (they usually give 75), which totals 900 miles.  I am paying $125 plus taxes and fees for the rental so I would receive 125 Hertz points total for the rental if I go that route. 900 CO miles is worth slightly more to me then 125 Hertz points and since I dont rent often it seems even more valuable to me.
However, I have to look into it but its possible that Hertz will charge me $0.75 a day to be earning on CO for a total of $4.50.  So if its 900 CO miles plus a fee of $4.50 vs 125 Hertz points then I think I would just go with Hertz.

From my experience rentals in israel are tracked via your license number so it will take longer to come up.

you cannot use their insurance just with their banking you also have to qualify for all their military benefits in order to use their insurance.

I just hung up from USAA and the agent (after doing some research) told me that I don't need any specific product, as long as I am a member I will be covered.

as long as you are a member you can use their benefits.
about the insurance, i always heard from agents and from people that tried to claim their insurance that we cannot use it, but if you heard different then good luck and enjoy it, maybe get the agents number in case something happens

Uf enough people are doing this at same location,  the location catches on and doesn't let you rent with the out of country rate.

I'm assuming the location in Cleveland is totally unaware of this shtick - as opposed to the lkwd location which may be well aware at this point.

officially if you are under 25 and just using the underage cupon without any specific corporate they cant rent out to you anything over a fullsize its just not enforced and some places rather get rid of SUV's so usually they dont care, but using CDP of USAA gives you all the rights as if you would be over 25 i know this for a fact and i discussed it more then once with hertz and USAA represenatives but not everyone knows this and since every rental place has the right to disqualify you from letting you rent they can disqualify you from anything over fullsize as well so YMMV

Hertz plat (don't pm, I don't have) can book awards for others. There are no transfer partners. You can earn hertz points by staying at hotels etc. I believe you can now get 1000 per stay at a hyatt, so if there's one near that's probably cheaper than buying from hertz

reportedly, hertz in park slope and in jfk caught on and dont let you rent with sa. In fact the manager for night in hertz jfk told me he knows all the shyick and is crackind down heavily!
the park slope location now looks at the rental to see where it originates from. if it's SA they don't honor it.
From personal experience and had freinds who told me happened with them as well

and C.I. i didnt hear the best from - but its on and off there, and Atlantic i dont think was reported yet. but i know they dont like renting to young bochurim (if that applies to you) because many of them trash the cars.
dont know about the last place

with Amex plat you can get a 4 hour grace period, otherwise you only have one hour - and i think you should keep ur points and come closer to 1 and its 2 hours before the flight, no big deal!

you can ask them at the counter before picking up the car if they can adjust the time as if you picked it up an hour later and if its a nice agent at the counter they will do it for you, they have done it to me a few times

with Amex plat you can get a 4 hour grace period, otherwise you only have one hour - and i think you should keep ur points and come closer to 1 and its 2 hours before the flight, no big deal!

Quote from: Hertz FAQ
Does Hertz allow for any type of grace period on their rentals?
Yes, we allow a 29 minute grace period from the time that you picked up the car.
Quote from: Hertz FAQ
Why was I billed for an additional day?
Rental charges are computed based on a rental day consisting of 24 consecutive hours commencing at the time of rental.  The minimum rental period is 1 day.  When returned, a 29 minute grace period is allowed from the time the vehicle was rented.  If the vehicle is returned after the grace period, an additional charge will be incurred.

It is added but it doesn't lower the rate at all. I found PC# 169853 to be way better, combined with CDP: LAMC MARKETING PROGRAM 3 and Argentina, a full size for a week for under $190.

Edit: $188.92 to be exact, plus unlimited miles. From Brooklyn 5/23-5/30, can anyone find a better rate?"

yes gold does, but in brooklyn there is no gold that u bypass counter its usually only in airport locations. by HLE theyll just print out the reservation to be ready for u.

its very simple -
1. some locations do not realize that its an SA rate and will let it go thru and few locations do (mainly in metro NY)

2. Canada rates i never heard of not being honored and i dont see how they can say no because there is no way to prove you didnt book it while in canada (even though you can say the same by SA but sometimes theyll ask for a flight ticket to show when u were there)

USAA has nothing to do with either one of them and you will usually get honored if u have a membership with them (FREE). some locations may ask for ID so then its recommended to get a debit card (free just with a min. of $25) from usaa's bank - singn up online

i think that covers it all

if you call the biling dpt. They might adjust your rental and the location will only see it if they look back at your rental.
You can ask them for a $25 certificate instead then the location wont be able to see that but the billing department will be able to tell how many you got this year so its not good to get too many of them, but a few per year isnt bad.

There was damage to rental car and other car, was not my fault although cop didnt right whos fault it was in report.

at first they sent me a bill for over $4K so i called and they said dont worry no need to pay that as we are trying to work out with other cars insurance company.

I called back once and they said was still pending, so just in case i opened a claim with AMEX. never heard from HERTZ since so i suspect they got the money from other guys insurance but cant know forsure

this was over 2 years ago

Sorry for not reposting. My full story is: I got into an accident on may 20th no other car was involved (hit a bad pothole) I called roadside and they towed it for me. I right away called visa to start a claim proccess. When I was filling out the incident report they put my cellphone number by the insurance line and said they will call me. It has been a month already and no one called. Is there any reason that I should call them? They only charged my cc for the rental and no other charges. As of now I'm waiting for them to call me back.  Any ideas?   Thanks

Ever tried asking? With a little tip, you never know...

You should be able to upgrade at under $30/day YMMV.

I don't like bribing. I think $30/day for a top car is a fair assumption of average negotiating successes, but it's not a science.

I would probably buy avis CC, but there's an age requirmenet with that. (It'd be idiotic to risk $1000 on the workaround)

I hear you. Though, my question still stands, did you ever ask? (Major YMMV, but does work sometimes)

How many days a year do you rent? (if you dont mind me asking).

I'd say that if you already had a Avis profile, theyll just upgrade it to Chairmans without looking into it too deeply.

Don't know. (hence the probably)
Don't have a profile yet, afraid of blacklisting the first time they check. And I think the individual managers will look into it when they're giving me their nicest cars.

See FT, they don't come to the terminal often, upgrades even at airport are a big YMMV, etc.

A few weeks ago I was at Hertz MIA, where you have to go through a series of elevators, tunnels, trains, parking lots to get to the rental car location, and a Plat showed up there. Terminal pick off/drop off is a published benefit.

Was asking maybe you knew more which you do mention.

AFAIK, only drop off is a published benefit as they aren't allowed to wait by the terminal.

Me thinks that if you made a point of it, you could get something nice every time. But yes, a pain for something that is supposed to be a benefit.

25 mile drop off with Avis CC would probably the thing Id want most.

Thats true. Though from many times renting as PC, only once have I had an agent tell me I cant take the luxury.

Ended up with a Camaro SS convertible. Not sure why thats allowed but it did the job.

My story with hertz:
My father rented a car for 4 days from lga to return in lga, and he added a free day coupon in there. The total was for a full size $262. All went well besides that they wouldn't add me as a second driver even though I was usaa and showed debit card but I'm not 25 so it wouldnt go in the system.
Then I decided to extend the rental for one day and return in JFK. So I called up and they said it won't cost any extra since I have a weekly rate so its the same ! (Make sure u call the extension soon line, don't do at location cuz they'll charge.
Then we asked to switch cars on the 4th day cuz we had a messed up tire. So she sends me to a camaro! But as I'm about to pull out a worker stops me and says its not for me and gave me a Malibu ;(

I always used the Chabad CDP in Europe and TOLD them that part of corporate contract is no underage fee (although this is NOT true). They just manually removed. No guarantee, but has always worked for me.
Waiving a fee & allowing rentals <21 are two very different things.

hertzsupercars.com (http://hertzsupercars.com) for uk and usa. usa means florida and only ferrari and lambo. uk has much more stuff
Thats not the regular Hertz site as the Porsche is on...

And doubt youll get an upgrade to it.

Those type of cars, why would you rent from Hertz?

Correct, I was referring to renters 21-24. They wouldn't rent to anyone under 21 and there's no way around that as far as I know.

I was once able to add a friend (under 21) as second driver, simply because they didn't realize.

They seem to allow all PC to rent Prestige with no age restriction (21+).

P.S. Once I get through any "questionable" situation , I use that as proof for future situations (bringing a copy of the previous invoice). Has worked for me with Hertz, Delta and many others.
The idea is to get them to make an exception (or whatever) once for you and use it "against" them later. It's worked for me to get all types of fees waived and upgrades. Best to use a blend of courteous and rigid talk ;) !

Hence my P.S.

Whenever renting prestige, I bring along a previous rental agreement for prestige and if they refuse to rent to me, I just show it them and explain that it's one of the PC benefits (although it's definitely not!).
Obviously there's no guarantee, but it's your best bet.

Just noticed that at DTW (maybe elsewhere as well), none of their vehicles are listed as prestige/adrenaline/green. They do take the $100 deposit but this still has some very good ramifications...
Without saying too much, since the rate code isn't the usual one, you can get prestige, like their ford mustang convertible (!!!) with the standard 600 points free day.
Obviously when using points it will initially show "unavailable", but since the rate code would match it will work with a workaround.
I know this could work because I've done it before, though it took a while for the agent to agree to actually give my a prestige for $20 a day (taxes).

Reserve the car for 30 days, which will prob be the same price as 26 days. just return it after 26 if you need, and it should be the same price. AFAIK

Hertz to Feature Porsche Sports Cars in U.S. Prestige Collection
July 10, 2012 10:14 PM
The Hertz Corporation said it has become the first U.S. car rental company to purchase vehicles from Porsche, and will be the first major car rental company in the U.S. to rent Porsche sports cars. Through its relationship with Porsche Cars North America, Inc. and Porsche Motorsport North America, Inc., Hertz is enabling consumers in select markets to rent a limited number of Panamera sport sedans as part of the Hertz Prestige Collection, a line of high-end cars which transform an ordinary business or leisure trip into an extraordinary journey.

"Hertz revolutionized the industry when we introduced make and model reservable cars through our Prestige Collection and we're now excited to be the first major rental car company in the U.S. to rent Porsche sports cars," said Mark Frissora, Hertz chairman and CEO. "With the introduction of Porsche vehicles to the U.S. car rental industry, we're once again setting the bar in offering top-performing luxury cars and we're confident the Porsche Panamera will provide a unique driving experience for customers who are passionate about high-end performance vehicles."

The Porsche Panamera sports sedan provides another rental option for consumers looking for a different travel experience. The Panamera offers sports car technology for four, including comfort and everyday practicality without compromise. In addition to the introduction of the Panamera, Hertz and Porsche Motorsport North America have agreed that Hertz will be named an official sponsor of the 2012 Porsche IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge by Yokohama and a sponsor of the 2012 JDX Racing Team.  As part of the sponsorship, Hertz will be integrated into the GT3 Cup Challenge and will be displayed prominently on all vehicles, while the 2012 JDX Racing Porsche GTC car will compete throughout 2012 in the American Le Mans Series.

The Porsche Panamera is a sports sedan with a manufacturer's suggested retail price starting at $75,850. Beginning this month, Hertz customers in select California, Florida and Nevada markets can rent this vehicle with rates starting at $250 per weekend day.

Well thats the point, the 26 day reservation is more expensive. The question is when I make a 28 day reservation and return it early, will I get the 26 day rate or the monthly rate.

Hello all,

I want to rent a prestige car from hertz (or any car rental company) for about a month in nyc. Any suggestions with corporate or codes would be greatly appreciated....

Also does anybody know which company is cheapest for exotic car rentals?


 Thanks

SEED?

Some Chase cc's have primary insurance. Some insurance companies  sell it for a better price than Hertz.

It seems from this page below that Capital One and Citi AA Business cards have Primary Rentral insurance too.

I am 20 years old and need to rent a car in Fort Lauderdale from Thursday evening until Monday morning.

What is the best & cheapest way of doing so, avoiding the underage fee?
Is Hertz deffinately the best way to go?
Can you tell me what to do regarding all the codes to enter etc.?
(Would it be much cheaper doing it under my wifes name??.. She is 21.)

Thanks guys!!

there is one guy there who checks cars (alot of times he is the only one there, hes there for years already) not so easy when he tries to find scratches. He once made me trouble for something that was there before on the wheel, but know it was visible as the wheel was turned more, I just said goodbye and returned in King david.

I remember using EZ Rent  A Car when I was 18.
There are def corporate codes that will waive underage fee for over 21 but you'd have to look into if they work for 20 year olds.

the only way this will work is if you add it after the reservation is already made by modifying it online or calling up to add it.

Strange, I always get points. Maybe they do not have your account info the same as your Gold account? Look on the invoices.

Tali speaks Russian, the other (manager?) speaks arabic. Try to be nice to the workers. I never made any scratches on their cars and never got harassed there, BP"Y, Bli A"H. Don't come in with an attitude. Always take pics on picking up the car. Sometimes you and them can miss a scratch. It does not mean that they are evil, that that is their biz model. You can clear it up with pics. If you do not have a picture, you can get them to pull up previous rental papers to see if it was marked there. Mistakes happen.

FTFY.
yes, it happend to me once and they told me that although it says on the contract 'no additianal drivers w/o our written permission' the manegar explained that its written in the contract bet. Hertz and USAA that its allowed and since hertz allows you to be a 2nd driver you are fully covered
Title: Re: Hertz Master Thread

the Question arises will the CC insurance cover a 2nd driver which his name isnt written on the contract but the corporate allows him to be a 2nd driver.

has anyone here had such a case that the CC payed for damages w/o his name written on the contract

Title: Re: Hertz Master Thread
Post by: SGF on August 26, 2012, 03:58:50 PM
there are a few risks with using insurance from USSA.
A.
Quote from: USAA
The member is responsible for the first $5,000 of damage to a rental vehicle. This may be covered by insurance.
B. i heard from USAA CSR that only if you were part of the military or a family will you be covered
C. some people claim that if you have banking with them its enough to use their insurance.

from my understanding that s/o that is just a member would not be covered

You won't have coverage from your CC?

Is this not just about USAA coverage?
i believe the discussion is about  letting another usaa member drive without having them registered on the car. your CC insurance may not cover you

Sorry, I was spacing out.

I assume that the cc insurer would not cover as it says on the T&C, only drivers listed... No experience with additional driver making damage B"H!

As an aside, why not just sign them on to the car?

I found a car for a friend in Chicago for $267/week incl liability ins.
He ended up needing to return it after only 4 days, when he called up hertz they wanted to charge him over $300 so he decided to just return it and see what happened, they ended up charging him 135ish, so if you ever need to cut a rental short you might have a better chance paying a prorated weekly rate instead of the daily rate if you just return to location w/o calling their call center

I've heard and read on the forums about many people having issues reserving and prepaying rentals through Hertz's France, Germany and other countries websites. I have specifically heard of people having issues at the Park Slope HLE.
I just booked a car on Hertz Germany with a totally inclusive rate even including the first tank of gas, to be picked up at JFK and dropped off a Park Slope and surprisingly I saw this in the T&C:
"RATES NOW ALSO VALID FOR NY RESIDENTS"
Seems like they've caught on but still allow it! What I'm paying now is literally a fraction of the regular US rate!

On every reservation making in NYC you get this msg "RATES NOW ALSO VALID FOR NY RESIDENTS" , the reason being, years ago they used to charge an extra $10 a day for residents of NYC renting in NY, they were claiming NYC residents had the most liability claims, so since they stopped charging the extra fee they put this msg,
You still have to show a airline ticket showing that you came from that country you made the booking

I had an issue with it yesterday on a return of a one way rental and they said that with my weekend rate they can't process it. So I told him it says on the contract applied at return and I told him I know he can manually adjust it.  So he did and I got charged $8 :)

I've been having problems/goods times with Hertz
On my Last 2 rentals from them
which incidently were done using free day vouchers when I went to return the car the lady scanning the cars told me it's not scanning and I have to go inside, for obvious reasons I didn't want to so I told her  I'm in a rush to catch my flight and she has my permission to close my contract without me.
Later in the day when I didn't get me receipt I called Hertz and they told me not to worry it can take longer sometimes. 3 days later when I still hadn't received my receipt I called back and gave them my RR# they told me that this reservation has been canceled and when I looked online at my cc statement the $202.57 was no longer pending and then again the next time I rented the same thing happened only this time I went inside and they said my contract was closed and hinted that I'm free to go - they probably were afraid of getting in trouble
Anyway has anybody heard of a similar situation with Hertz? Am I blacklisted? I'm starting to think of the Nordstrom brothers
Oh and the problem is not the location as a friend if mine returned his car at the same time as me
Title: Re: Hertz Master Thread
Post by: SGF on October 23, 2012, 11:28:12 PM
Tips how to search for a cheap rental with Hertz:

1. CDP: Try different CDP corporate numbers, you can search on the forums and you'll find many. Here are a few good ones that I use:

USAA: 77694 (its subject to ID but it rarely happens that they request it)

AAdvatange: 217692

LAMC 3 marketing: 1906870

CBS Travel :  1976539, :)

There are many more but I haven't found them to be cheaper then these.

2. Different Countries: Hertz offers different rates for people that live in other countries. If you have ID from a specific country or your address in your hertz gold account is from a specific country than use this country and you will most probably not have a issue (even in places that usually don't honor it), otherwise its a risk of them asking you for proof of residency from that country and they might not honor it, most times it will get honored but sometimes it doesn't especially in locations that too many people used it already for example JFK, LGA, Brooklyn (park Slope & atlantic) etc.. The best would be to use US virgin islands because they will most likely not ask you for proof. But nothings a guarantee that they won't. Try using the hertz site of different countries to get cheaper rates the main ones to check are:
-USA
-Canada
-Any South american country
-South africa
-Germany
-Any arab country -France.
But you can try all countries, they may have diff. rates.
Some of them include sometimes full insurance.

3. Play with the dates: its proven that after playing around with the dates its possible to end up with the same dates for a much cheaper rate, usually this applies to last minute rentals, it's hard to explain how to do it but basically if you would like  to rent for 1 or 2 days in middle of the week it can happen that a daily rate for 1 day is more expensive then a daily rate for 3 days,  what you do is you try searching for 3 or 4 days then click modify - (I mean modify before you complete the reservation while you are still choosing which car) - a few times back and forth and the rate can change also try different days of the week like from monday to wednesday can be different then wednesday to friday select it and then modify the dates.
same applies to a weekly rental, try other weeks that are cheaper and then modify back to your dates.
When doing a weekend rental it depends what day, what time, and how many days you are renting for. Sometimes It can be a few different rates on the same day.
Let's say you are looking to rent from thursday morning at 11 till 11 friday try searching from thursday afternoon or friday morning until monday, that way you get the weekend rate and then modify it to your hours, make sure it will be after 12 otherwise it won't let you get the weekend rate and you can go in to the location an hour early. You can also make the reservation from Thursday to Monday and return it on Friday to get the one day rate which it wouldn't let you book.

4. Coupons: hertz offers many coupon codes to take off a few $$ a day off your rental. most of them are for weekly and weekends but sometimes even if you rent 1 day you can save $5 -$10, they can be found on -Hertz.com and in the monthly emails they send out to their gold members (elite members sometimes get better codes) or in the back of a rental receipt they print out at airports.
Always make sure that the promotional coupon gets accepted in the reservation while you book it online, it happens sometimes that the system will not accept the coupon code or even if it does the price will go up, in that case what can be done is after the reservation is completed and booked, modify the reservation and try adding the code again, if it still will not accept it then you probably did not meet its T&C and it will not work. I have had success adding a code which didn't even work online by calling in to the reservations desk.
If it is not in the reservation you can try your luck at the desk but it dose'nt always work

5. One way rentals:
When you are looking for a one way rental, every country and every corporate number will give a different price, usually its 1 of the following 3, either it will cost per mile or it will be unlimited miles with a drop fee or unlimited miles with no drop fee.
Look out it happens  sometimes the car you select they will charge $0.25 per mile while the next car class over will be unlimited miles with no drop fee, when it comes to one ways always look at all the car classes, I have seen many times a midsize SUV to be cheaper then a full size car.
Another thing to note is that certain locations in the same city will have a drop fee while others will not, for example to rent one way to NY, if you return to lynbrook NY there will always be a drop fee while if you return to brooklyn there is no drop fee and JFK will have a drop fee sometimes depending which country you use, sometimes it might be worth searching other pick up and other drop off locations nearby to get a totally different rate in a one way rental.

6. Week +  or long term rental:
You go to a different city on vacation or to visit family and you want to rent a car for a week or 2 or more, you will obviously search for rentals in the airport that you will arrive at and at the airport it is usually more expensive as well as all the extra airport tax which is not a flat rate, it depends what your base rate is so the longer the rental the more airport tax there is.
The best thing would do is to search around in the city at HLE locations which is usually much cheaper and search there for the week long rental then try to see if you can maybe take a taxi from the airport to that location or even rent a car for 1 day one way from the airport to that location, there's usually no extra fees to return at a different location in the same city this way the total price  of 2 cars can come out much cheaper then 1 car at the airport.
Same point applies for other rental agencies.

Let's say you are looking to rent from thursday morning at 11 till 11 friday try searching from thursday afternoon or friday morning until monday, that way you get the weekend rate and then modify it to your hours, make sure it will be after 12 otherwise it won't let you get the weekend rate and you can go in to the location an hour early. You can also make the reservation from Thursday to Monday and return it on Friday to get the one day rate which it wouldn't let you book.

4. Coupons: hertz offers many coupon codes to take off a few $$ a day off your rental. most of them are for weekly and weekends but sometimes even if you rent 1 day you can save $5 -$10, they can be found on -Hertz.com and in the monthly emails they send out to their gold members (elite members sometimes get better codes) or in the back of a rental receipt they print out at airports.

Great post.
Although the following part gets a -1 from experience:
If you have ID from a specific country or your address in your hertz gold account is from a specific country than use this countries and you should never have a issue (even in places that usually don't honor it)

What is your story?
I am writing from my personal experiance and from others. I personally have ID and They did ask my for more then once and when I showed it to them they let me.
Also I changed my address in my gold profile to south america and they never again asked me for ID.
In park slope I tried switching over my reservation to someone else and the guy said that he can't honor if I give it over to the other guy since on his profile the address is in the US but since my address is in south america they can honor it and they never asked me for ID

I was told just the opposite, I need proof of ID and they don't care where I was when I reserved it, even if I have a stamp on my passport that I just came they won't honor it.
In fact the reason the rates are different by other countries because its a discount for the citizens of that country or region  so no matter where you are when reserved you should still be eligable.
I actually confirmed this point with the hertz non resident customer service # and that is what they explained me, you can call them at 800-654-3030.

get the hertz points instead...with double/triple points you'll get a few free days which will be worth more than the miles you'd earn IMHO...YMMV

even w/o triple points you still get 1.1 points per dollar spent on rental fee...so with free days starting at 500 points you should still be better off with hertz points if youve had a few months of rentals...

Post by: jj1000 on October 29, 2012, 03:59:02 PM
Tips how to search for a cheap rental with Hertz:

1. CDP: Try different CDP corporate numbers, you can search on the forums and you'll find many. Here are a few good ones that I use:

USAA: 77694 (its subject to ID but it rarely happens that they request it)

AAdvatange: 217692

LAMC 3 marketing: 1906870

CBS Travel :  1976539, :)

There are many more but I haven't found them to be cheaper then these.

2. Different Countries: Hertz offers different rates for people that live in other countries. If you have ID from a specific country or your address in your hertz gold account is from a specific country than use this country and you will most probably not have a issue (even in places that usually don't honor it), otherwise its a risk of them asking you for proof of residency from that country and they might not honor it, most times it will get honored but sometimes it doesn't especially in locations that too many people used it already for example JFK, LGA, Brooklyn (park Slope & atlantic) etc.. The best would be to use US virgin islands because they will most likely not ask you for proof. But nothings a guarantee that they won't. Try using the hertz site of different countries to get cheaper rates the main ones to check are:
-USA
-Canada
-Any South american country
-South africa
-Germany
-Any arab country -France.
But you can try all countries, they may have diff. rates.
Some of them include sometimes full insurance.

3. Play with the dates: its proven that after playing around with the dates its possible to end up with the same dates for a much cheaper rate, usually this applies to last minute rentals, it's hard to explain how to do it but basically if you would like  to rent for 1 or 2 days in middle of the week it can happen that a daily rate for 1 day is more expensive then a daily rate for 3 days,  what you do is you try searching for 3 or 4 days then click modify - (I mean modify before you complete the reservation while you are still choosing which car) - a few times back and forth and the rate can change also try different days of the week like from monday to wednesday can be different then wednesday to friday select it and then modify the dates.
same applies to a weekly rental, try other weeks that are cheaper and then modify back to your dates.
When doing a weekend rental it depends what day, what time, and how many days you are renting for. Sometimes It can be a few different rates on the same day.
Let's say you are looking to rent from thursday morning at 11 till 11 friday try searching from thursday afternoon or friday morning until monday, that way you get the weekend rate and then modify it to your hours, make sure it will be after 12 otherwise it won't let you get the weekend rate and you can go in to the location an hour early. You can also make the reservation from Thursday to Monday and return it on Friday to get the one day rate which it wouldn't let you book.

4. Coupons: hertz offers many coupon codes to take off a few $$ a day off your rental. most of them are for weekly and weekends but sometimes even if you rent 1 day you can save $5 -$10, they can be found on -Hertz.com and in the monthly emails they send out to their gold members (elite members sometimes get better codes) or in the back of a rental receipt they print out at airports.
Always make sure that the promotional coupon gets accepted in the reservation while you book it online, it happens sometimes that the system will not accept the coupon code or even if it does the price will go up, in that case what can be done is after the reservation is completed and booked, modify the reservation and try adding the code again, if it still will not accept it then you probably did not meet its T&C and it will not work. I have had success adding a code which didn't even work online by calling in to the reservations desk.
If it is not in the reservation you can try your luck at the desk but it dose'nt always work

5. One way rentals:
When you are looking for a one way rental, every country and every corporate number will give a different price, usually its 1 of the following 3, either it will cost per mile or it will be unlimited miles with a drop fee or unlimited miles with no drop fee.
Look out it happens  sometimes the car you select they will charge $0.25 per mile while the next car class over will be unlimited miles with no drop fee, when it comes to one ways always look at all the car classes, I have seen many times a midsize SUV to be cheaper then a full size car.
Another thing to note is that certain locations in the same city will have a drop fee while others will not, for example to rent one way to NY, if you return to lynbrook NY there will always be a drop fee while if you return to brooklyn there is no drop fee and JFK will have a drop fee sometimes depending which country you use, sometimes it might be worth searching other pick up and other drop off locations nearby to get a totally different rate in a one way rental.

6. Week +  or long term rental:
You go to a different city on vacation or to visit family and you want to rent a car for a week or 2 or more, you will obviously search for rentals in the airport that you will arrive at and at the airport it is usually more expensive as well as all the extra airport tax which is not a flat rate, it depends what your base rate is so the longer the rental the more airport tax there is.
The best thing would do is to search around in the city at HLE locations which is usually much cheaper and search there for the week long rental then try to see if you can maybe take a taxi from the airport to that location or even rent a car for 1 day one way from the airport to that location, there's usually no extra fees to return at a different location in the same city this way the total price  of 2 cars can come out much cheaper then 1 car at the airport.
Same point applies for other rental agencies.

I think both plat and PC have a good chance of getting a car perhaps plat a bit more.
Usually if I log into my account and I'm PC it automatically will show me some cars even if its not available. In this case it dosent show at all

Have in mind that they guarantee a vehicle with a reservation more then 2 hours, but here since they don't let me reserve at all they can just say we never promised you anything.

I guess the best option is to go in and wait for someone to return,  but I would like to play with the rate online in order to get a good deal, if they are gonna charge me a arm and a leg I'll just go to a diff. Company.

Could be they are prioritizing the cars for people who lost their cars and need the car long term (ie 1 week +) and not just regulars who need a car for a day. Although I doubt this is the reason, it's more likely a computer glitch.

Searched all over but couldnt find an answer.

I have a $100 " Hertz Customer Satisfaction Car Rental Certificate" that i would like to sell, but not sure if i can.

In the T&C it says "...may be used only by the person named above."

Anyone have any experiences with these? Will they check if names match?
Anyone?

I called JFK, (I'm PC and I pre-paid). They guaranteed me that a car would be there for me if I reserved prior to 2 weeks ago. They said it doesn't matter if I'm PC this week..

Why not call LGA?

BTW what are peoples' experience with PC at JFK? Good upgrades? Close parking spots?

Called the 800 number and no luck. I'm a presidential circle member.
Question is like this, I have a reservation but the place is kind of far from me, now to return it I asked the manager by me if I can return it by him and he said okay.
What kind of charges would appear for an unexpected 1 way rental?
Is there any reason they wouldnt be able to properly close my contract when i go return since im not suppose to be returning to that location?
Thanks.

Just call hertz and ask them to change drop off location. I just did it from jfk to LGA no problems. But an unexpected drop off can rob u sometimes

You will need a code PC# 144314 to waive the underage fee if you aren't 25 and not a member of a corporation which waives the underage fee. You could always join USAA which will waive all underage fees for you. You may also choose to use a CDP# if you don't use USAA. (i.e. CDP# 1876837 ;))

PC code has nothing to do with the corporate you are using, its just a coupon to save a few $$ a day. There are different ones depending how long you rent it for, you can find some on Hertz (http://www.hertz.com/rentacar/specialoffers/index.jsp?targetPage=specialOffersPerCategoryView.jsp) site on the top left at discounts and coupons.

Or here is a list of many coupons, thanx Hocker

probably not. All those companies would have to keep matching and they can stop at any time. Also they will prob see that you matched once and if you don't have a lot of rentals they won't do it for you again

you should probably continue the conversation in the proper thread.

it is not a must to buy liability but its up to you how much coverage you want on the car. this is a very minimal amount. the liability that the rental company offers is up to $1M.
many times accidents can do major damage much more then $5k-$25k and can even end up in law suits of over $1M.

Post by: lybbtthl on February 20, 2013, 01:56:10 AM
After flipping through most of the thread, i wanted to share some of my experiences with the France rates and other countries.
I have personally only found 3 countries to offer anything good, France, Germany and South Africa. (I have found Australia to also be good, but never better than the above mentioned)
99% of the time they'll have to show rates in their respective currency to be worth anything and include insurance
They typically include LDW and LIS and sometimes if you put in a rate code you'll also get PEC/PAI and FPO (1st tank gas) included
Occasionally they will not show any rates in their respective currency, in which case they are usually not any better than regular USA rates
I read through all the fine print and there is no mention whatsoever of the rates being restricted to residents or proof required of residency
I have used them multiple times in locations including but not limited to, LAX, La Brea Ave (LA), DTW, JFK, LGA, Park Slope, LAS, FLL, MCO, SJC.
I made reservations for people in Park Slope who were denied the car, I wasn't there to argue.
I can't see any reason why it shouldn't be allowed, and we see that Park Slope denied it many times and lately they allow it.
I should also mention, I have successfully claimed the LDW included in the French rate while on a rental in Los Angeles, I cracked the front bumper while pulling into a dark underground parking lot.


Interestingly, I tried to take advantage a bit too much last time I rented from Park Slope. I used a French rate, added a rate code to include the first tank of gas as well as adding PC code 185301 (for the $25 paper coupons that i have plenty of), I was able to make and prepay a reservation and the PC deducted EUR18.76 from the original price (I guess their exchange rates from $25) and when I came to pick up the car, the employee who served me, couldn't get the system to assign a car, she called the manager who couldn't either and he called up reservations and ended up speaking to 3 different people before he pulled out of the filing cabinet and old fashioned carbon copy paper contract that you fill out by hand, he filled out all the details and left the pricing section totally blank. He asked me rhetorically "Your prepaid rate includes insurance no?" I said yes and he handed me my copy and off I went. He never asked me for the coupon.
During one of his phone calls I overheard him saying "we get a lot of people using these rates here" It seems like he doesn't want to honor them but he's forced to.
After returning the car they couldn't give me a receipt because they had never entered my rental into the system, so they just filled in the return details on my paper contract and off I went. A few days later I got a receipt emailed to me charging me $90 for a vehicle upgrade which I never asked for and for gas (I returned it 2/8 when I took it full) I called Hertz and told them I had FPO included in my rate and never asked for an upgrade so why am I being charged? they refunded me.
Even after this whole ordeal he never asked me to show any ID for being French (he didn't either ask for USAA ID) nor did he ask me if I was in France!

After hearing about people being denied in Park Slope I told myself that when I get back to Brooklyn, I'll book myself a car through Australia and I'll argue with them and if I lose, i'll eventually pull out my Aussie Passport and then see what they have to say, but by the time I came back to NY, they started allowing these rates.

After flipping through most of the thread, i wanted to share some of my experiences with the France rates and other countries.
I have personally only found 3 countries to offer anything good, France, Germany and South Africa. (I have found Australia to also be good, but never better than the above mentioned)
99% of the time they'll have to show rates in their respective currency to be worth anything and include insurance
They typically include LDW and LIS and sometimes if you put in a rate code you'll also get PEC/PAI and FPO (1st tank gas) included
Occasionally they will not show any rates in their respective currency, in which case they are usually not any better than regular USA rates
I read through all the fine print and there is no mention whatsoever of the rates being restricted to residents or proof required of residency
I have used them multiple times in locations including but not limited to, LAX, La Brea Ave (LA), DTW, JFK, LGA, Park Slope, LAS, FLL, MCO, SJC.
I made reservations for people in Park Slope who were denied the car, I wasn't there to argue.
I can't see any reason why it shouldn't be allowed, and we see that Park Slope denied it many times and lately they allow it.
I should also mention, I have successfully claimed the LDW included in the French rate while on a rental in Los Angeles, I cracked the front bumper while pulling into a dark underground parking lot.


Interestingly, I tried to take advantage a bit too much last time I rented from Park Slope. I used a French rate, added a rate code to include the first tank of gas as well as adding PC code 185301 (for the $25 paper coupons that i have plenty of), I was able to make and prepay a reservation and the PC deducted EUR18.76 from the original price (I guess their exchange rates from $25) and when I came to pick up the car, the employee who served me, couldn't get the system to assign a car, she called the manager who couldn't either and he called up reservations and ended up speaking to 3 different people before he pulled out of the filing cabinet and old fashioned carbon copy paper contract that you fill out by hand, he filled out all the details and left the pricing section totally blank. He asked me rhetorically "Your prepaid rate includes insurance no?" I said yes and he handed me my copy and off I went. He never asked me for the coupon.
During one of his phone calls I overheard him saying "we get a lot of people using these rates here" It seems like he doesn't want to honor them but he's forced to.
After returning the car they couldn't give me a receipt because they had never entered my rental into the system, so they just filled in the return details on my paper contract and off I went. A few days later I got a receipt emailed to me charging me $90 for a vehicle upgrade which I never asked for and for gas (I returned it 2/8 when I took it full) I called Hertz and told them I had FPO included in my rate and never asked for an upgrade so why am I being charged? they refunded me.
Even after this whole ordeal he never asked me to show any ID for being French (he didn't either ask for USAA ID) nor did he ask me if I was in France!

After hearing about people being denied in Park Slope I told myself that when I get back to Brooklyn, I'll book myself a car through Australia and I'll argue with them and if I lose, i'll eventually pull out my Aussie Passport and then see what they have to say, but by the time I came back to NY, they started allowing these rates.

Nice!! Thanks  :)

you have to log in, then change the county to whatever and you'll still be logged in and you can make reservations with all your account info in. I have done it numerous times and its always told me Gold service confirmed and I've earned points

If there was no "special" cancellation policy, you are good. Once they realize you didn't pick up the car they will take it off IME.

If you are nervous, you can call and they should remove it.

If you have Hertz Gold and had the CC# on file I would wait to see if it posts which it probably won't. If it does just call 800-654-4173 and they will refund it no problem.

Just wanna throw out a tip.
Hertz in Inwood NY (right near Cedarhurst, about 10 mins from JFK) almost always has a 30% cheaper rate than Brooklyn locations, and is usually half the price of the location in JFK. I've also been able to return the rentals in Brooklyn at no additional charge. I recently rented a full size car from them for $200 a week. I quoted Brooklyn for the same rental and the rate was $330. Additionally since they are a small branch  you can usually ask them for any car they have (I've reserved economy cars and have gotten full size or suvs without a rate change, or promo code. You can book an economy, get a full size car for a week for around $160 and then use a promo code for an additional 35 off.)

You just have to be a member. As far as the coverage goes(this is for Hertz. Each company is different);
Primary Liability Coverage
Coverage included with a USAA rental: $25,000 bodily injury or death per person or the applicable state minimum, whichever is greater
$50,000 bodily injury or death per accident or the applicable state minimum, whichever is greater
$10,000 property damage or the applicable state minimum, whichever is greater
Loss or Damage to Rental Vehicle
The member is responsible for the first $5,000 of damage to a rental vehicle. This may be covered by insurance.

They'll definitely give you points as compensation but if you have a good reason for them to refund you money go for it. This past summer I went to pick up a car and all they had for me was a prius (which is not bad for what I reserved; a midsize for 170 a week) As they were closing the contract I heard the Manager complaining about the Dodge 1500 (pickup truck) so I offered to get rid of it for her and she gave it to me. As you can imagine the thing guzzled for a living besides for the tire pressure that was slowly and steadily getting lower I tried trading it in at a couple places to no avail (one even saying they don't accept pickup trucks!) went to newark the manager ran away from me ... don't ask. To make a long story short, I called up got a mercedes and refunded for ALL the gas guzzled and the hotel stay that night at newark!

It was run of the mill criteria just send them receipts or cc statement and they refunded. The mercedes on the other hand was a whole different story. First they ended up charging me and after fighting for a long time finally refunded half (it came out to $15 a day extra) but I got a whole lot of points; 2x for the rental and 25% more because of Prez Circle. Thats one thing to remember; when requesting refund, DON'T request until after your points post.

This whole thing happened because guys (Bachurim of course) used to book with points and then cancel the res  after picking up the car and get refunded the points and would rent for free.

If your returning to a different location it's considered one way because your not returning to the same place you picked it up from, it might be the same price but still is a one way and in the T&C it'll say 'one way confirmed'.

Anyone ever use Aeroplan CDP (http://www3.aeroplan.com/promotions/promotion_details.do?promotion=promo_webup2966_Hertz)

You also get 5000 AC miles for a week rental.

That sounds alot better than $35 off a week.

Is there a reason no one uses this?(AFAIK)
$35 off a weak is from a promo code. You can get the aeroplan miles and still use a promo code.
Other cdps give cheaper rates (aside from the pc), and no-fee underage rentals...

The number of points for a redemption is steady (I.e. it's always 500 points for 1 weekend day,  600 points for 1 weekday etc.), so try to use your points for your most expensive rentals to maximize your point value.
I usually use points when I'm renting from an airport since they charge more for rentals. This way I also get around the extra fees that the airport charges.
Even though when you make your reservation online using points it will include the fees and taxes in your estimated total cost, you aren't charged for them when you complete the rental. Whenever I've rented with points my total cost was around $2 a day.

-1,
Depends on the place there are 3 types of extra charges, 1.there's regular tax which is % off the rental so if there's no base rate bec. You used points the taxes are nothing or almost nothing
2. Flat rate airport or security fee - which you'll always have to pay.
3. Airport fees which will differ depending on your base rate so if your base rate is nothing you'll pay very little.

When you rent in NY at an off airport location they only charge a tax percentage off the base rate, which when you use a coupon will be zero and the total of your rental should be around the same. 

At an airport they will charge for AP fees, etc. which you won't get off.

So do the math your self when it's worth it or not.

Local locations generally have little or no taxes, airports have more. FLL, for example has a lot of taxes ($6-9+ per day) while other airports will have less, but of course it will vary as was mentioned above

There's no way around the "one way", you have many options to do, you can change your ticket to both go out of LGA if available, or take a cab between airports, or pay for rental.

I rented at Shlomo Sixt, before the return I noticed a huge dent on the left side (that's what happens just for parking in Tzfas...)
Returned during night hours, the guy inspected the car and didn't see anything...

I wouldn't want and I will try to avoid paying for it but
A.if they will charge me I rather work it out now than getting a bill in the mail 2 months too late, (I know someone that got a bill from hertz 2 months after the incident and the cc didn't want to cover it.)
If they accept the car without saying anything about or billing you for the damage then fight the charge with through your CC company.

@SamKey:
Bad experience.
Car recharger didn't work, I wasn't aware of that till GPS stopped working en route to the north, couldn't change the car there as all non airport were already closed.
By 11:30PM they sent someone to fix it.
Air conditioner worked only during night hours (when I'm in a desperate need for it), but not during the day (when its mostly chilly in Israel).

Complained, and didn't get a penny compensation, because I already got a discount of a few $$ on the GPS...

Figured its in the Hertz Thread ,
Byw a dispute always works in israel, especially if u dispute a partial amount for example the Gps!! The reason they won't give u a discount when u complain unlike in the states , regardless of what I are paying u are entitled for what u reserved in good condition , israel looks at what u pay  and since u got a deal.

The fact is that there is no difference changing the CDP online or at location the different rate will apply the reason I posted before that UR won't work is because they have their own CDP and if you are using UR points for the res or they have a deal it is only while using their CDP (its part of a promotion to get more people to use their CDP) as apposed to pricelin that is just an agent except I don't know how priceline reservations works I'm assuming they work with a rate code or something and not a CDP but I'm not sure

This reservation is based on information you have provided
Hertz, including information regarding your current
geographic location.  Hertz reserves the right to demand
proof of what you have told us.  In particular, if you have
indicated that you are located outside your country of
residence,  you may, at the time of rental, be required to
prove where you were when this reservation was made,
through evidence such as an air or rail carrier ticket
receipt, a hotel bill or a utility bill addressed to you at
the location where you say you were.  Failure to provide
such substantiation may invalidate the rates you have been
quoted, or invalidate the entire reservation.  Providing
false information to Hertz in connection with this
reservation would also breach your rental agreement and
could violate the law.

Whenever I make a "pay now" reservation, it will not allow me to make another pay now reservation for the same time, even if I give or take half hour. It will say "error reservation on file, please contact Hertz". The work around I have found is to use another CC. (Even from your gold profile.) But I like to put it all on my OPEN card, so this is annoying. I have tried logging out, using another browser and waiting an hour between rentals.

Also when adding a second, underage driver with USAA it will not allow it to be free!
I have gotten it off after the rental by going to customer service, but this is obviously a pain.

Anyone knows any workarounds for either issues?

Anyone have the CDP code for this company: PARADYNE INTL LTD

My friend had it on his profile, but it got removed after several years, and now he's trying to find it again.

Your status gives you a non-guaranteed  one car class upgrade. Use PC# 159530 to give you a 2x upgrade. Once insurance is paying anyway, rent from the airport and with the above you should be able to get yourself a nice car.
Note: You may need to use the USAA CDP code to use the coupon. You don't have to return the car to the airport.
Title: Re: Hertz Master Thread
Post by: Bostener on June 12, 2013, 03:30:19 PM
GEICO won't let you rent from the airport because there are extra fees & taxes. I still thing I would take out the car on Conny Island and then change it in JFK or LGA.

Question; on a car that is reserved and paid by GEICO, how do you add this coupon code since I am not the one who makes the reservation?

1. JFK can give you a hard time trading in. Coney Island location's employees are a pain to deal with though they sometimes have nice cars, call beforehand to see what they have. You might want to try the Inwood location (youy can return to bk) very nice guy once in a while has some nice cars.
Ask Geico for the res # then play around online... Put in your gold number and the coupon

Also, is it always cheaper to return to a local edition as oppose to the airport, or it depends?

Some credit cards like the United Club Card will only insure you if the rental is up to 15 days.

Lazegotit, how much is gas for such a trip?

Obviously it would depend on the car I'm renting, but I'd say anywhere from 500 to 700...
Title: Re: Hertz Master Thread
Post by: Bostener on June 16, 2013, 03:51:06 PM
$700 / 3.5 (average price per gallon) = 200 gallons of gas. I wonder what's your MPG.

1. Play around it might be cheaper from another location on the way. Where will you be spending most of the time?
2. The only difference there might be is dropoff fee.

I have some hertz points due to expire, around 1450. It's enough for 2 free weekday rentals. With no vacations coming up, what's the cheapest/easiest way to extend them?  Hertz rules are pretty easy, anything that adds/deducts points is considered activity.
