I took it as as an accusation of a reading comprehension issue. It literally says that right underneath of "Receive your

But I guess (hope) you're right, he did try to help.

I thought my question "What is the $250 Travel Credit all about?" was clear that I was seeking the details of the credits.

Any restaurant?
Any hotel?
is there a minimum I have to spend?
WTH is an event credit?

But perhaps I really do have a reading comprehension issue :D

Besides Costco and the regulated credit cards, I hardly ever see any of these fees refundable, at least without penalty. If you rent Hertz several times a year just cough up $99.

The credits would be worthless for most people. But the real value would be refunding the prepaid rates and in some areas $2 fixed gas price.

Unless it is grossly abused or fuel price spiked sharply, I doubt Hertz will care to change that number very often.
Every terms are 'Subject to change' which is just the corporate way of denying any liabilities.

You think they will lose money if gas prices are more than $2?

Gas isn't free to them. Average should smooth the gain or loss affect.
But they are also under Chapter 11.  :P

AAA membership costs less, takes off the underage fee and gives a percentage off.
Don't see lots of advantages for the price difference.

AAA waives the underage fee from 20 years old. This seems to be from 18 which usually 18 year olds can't rent in most states, regardless if they pay an underage fee or not.

Also, not having to worry about filling up the car or getting charged through the roof will give you peace of mind.

Do you feel that AAA seems to have fewer unique benefit enough to keep the membership?

I had them for decades and feel I'm not really getting much benefits lately. Credit card or insurance company these days have roadside assistance too.

I think AU gets it too, but like the credits, its annual limit is shared by everyone.

Just returned a car at MCO, and due to traffic didn't have time to fill the gas, was running extremely late.
Just got hit with a $150+ gas charge (9.99 /gallon!!!)!

Im not so sure, i wouldnt lay out $100 for that chance, it hasnt happened to me in the past and is not something i am too worried about. would you buy 100 dollars of insurance for that eventuality? it seems expensive.
If you dont want to deal with the hassle in the first place then i understand that it might be worth to pay for the service, but again, i dont see myself paying $100 for someone to fill up my tank.

I rented a car with Hertz in LGB a few years back (JetBlue 75k mileage run). I thought Iíd use most of the tank, and be running super late on the return, so added the full tank option.

On the way back to the airport, I had lots of extra time and hadnít used nearly what I thought I would. So I called CS and had them remove the fuel option from my reservation, then filled up myself and dropped it off without problem.

Interesting, and probably even if you would have used the full tank service it would take some time till you reached $100 in difference. (although hle's are not always so good at staying in an imaginable price range)

You probably don't understand what Chapter 11 is.
If you do understand Chapter 11 and still doubt about their operation in a month or two, then you should rent some nice car and keep it until they cease operation. It's going to be a long time before someone will claim back the car.

Its definitely within the realm of possibility that they will cease operations for some time during their (hopeful) restructuring.
As it stands they're selling off thousands of their vehicles as well as shuffling them to other brands. They're trying to generate as much cash as they can upfront. I wouldn't bet on it.

As far as their vehicles go, I'd doubt anyone presiding over their restructure would approve of any plan in which their primary assets would be unaccounted for.

I can't comment much on the restructuring plan as no news came out of it yet.
Now if you do have more insider knowledge, as far as vehicles go, it depends on know will acquire those assets. I'm sure cars will be accounted for, but actual location of the asset might be in doubt and might take months to track it down. I'm not suggesting you will get a free car, I'm just pointing out a possibility it could take a while before someone claims ownership of the car. ;)

Now if you have sprint, or anything else that partners with benefithub, using their CDP waives the underage.
Don't even have to pay for AAA membership :)
