That's Frau Sixt to you!  Does Platinum still exist for Sixt?  I'm going to call their CS group in the UK tomorrow (they don't yet have one here in the US) and inquire about status match from Hertz

Brooklyn hertz has very good service if ur 5 star from my experience and what i heard from others.
5 star gives u upgrades when available and why would Brooklyn be diff?
if the location you rented from didnt have or didnt wanto give u a free upgrade with 5 star you can always go to another location which does have availible and they have to give it to you

Not that would fit 4 duffel bags, 1 full-size stroller, 1 car seat+base, 1 wheeled carry-on, 1 laptop bag+1 backpack.
:P

I called and asked whatcha got that's big.  They offered me Explorer/Tahoe/Expedition, went with the smallest of the bunch, they drove it up right up to the terminal for me, loaded all our bags in it, and off we went!

Debating now between a Tahoe and a 4 door hardtop Wrangler 4WD for LIH.

Does the HI terrain require a 4x4? Why'd you go with the Tahoe, aren't they gas guzlers?

KOA and ITO need 4x4.  LIH could benefit from 4x4.  No point in 4x4 for OGG or HNL.

However this Tahoe isn't 4x4, just needed something big for copious amounts of luggage.  I wonder if it could still handle a road meant for 4WD vehicles? Anyone have a guess?

Also as a Chairman, gas guzzling isn't too big of an issue.  Returned my Explorer at 5/8ths of a tank and was only charged $9 for it.

Come to think of it, you probably maxxed out your baggage allowance bringing along enough food :)

COMMENTS:  Was VERY underwhelmed by the "President's Circle" treatment from Hertz.  Got PC through status match from Hertz the other week -- so this was my first rental as  PC member.  I really didn't want an SUV, and they had nothing else to offer that didn't involve paying an additional fee.  I was nice, friendly, polite, etc., they didn't give a damn.  I even mentioned that I had recently attained PC status, and would have thought they would be willing to put me in a different car, etc., etc.  No help -- just a brain dead agent at the FLL desk yesterday.

i think that ur experience has much to do with that airport. - i had a whole story with them as well - to long to go into but theres really noone home there and especially with the manager. (i ended up coming back at 2 am when only one person works there and got my way)

Really!  Although as I said before, the PC was useless in my first experience.  I would try to call someone there...although I called to complain about my lackluster experience in FLL and haven't heard back from anyone with any useful information or $apology$

Maybe email is the only way to find the right group.

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.

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.

what's the 25 off code? didn't know that you can combine something with USAA...

It's a PC code (while USAA is a CDP code): 185301. Note, they're supposed to ask to see the coupon, but many time they don't...
In my post above, They obviously didn't take off the $25. I just noted that I used it since it may have played a role in the price I got.

depending on the place they have to pick you up and if they cant they pay you for a taxi so if you call half hour b4 the close they usually dont have anyone to pick up, so i just get a ride.

why do they pick you up?

are these rates around for a few day rental?

Hertz has on option to pick up if u live a few min drive from the location, so park slope will usually pick up from CH.

that rate u cant get now, because it used to be that Hertz SA in brooklyn would be $29.00 +/- and he used a $25 coupon which makes would bring it down to almost nothing.
but now (these days) i havent seen such rates really. maybe its the season.

so i just hung up from noach, i rented a car a few weeks ago and was overcharged, not at the fault of noach at all. on the contrary, they were very helpful in trying to resolve the situation for me, but since it was on my cc i just was able to clear it up with chase instead of bothering noach all day.
nothing changed from then to now in terms from renting thru them, they def DO GIVE the best rates here in israel, and they are americans and the understand the "the customer is always right" and they try every which way to make the customer happy. they are not ripping you off, they work full time and there always available for help. when renting this past time i had 2/3 changes and every time i would apologize for calling so often, and they never flinched always took it with a smile, with the understanding that trips always need fine tuning as being planed.
 i hope that this will enlighten people to use noach more often, and i even hope they'll rent me a car this week :-)

Is this really all about price and price?

What is your opinion friends;  Isn't worth it even to pay a bit more but to have an easy reachable agent that answers calls/email quickly and on time, thats available long hours, and that Stands behind his word and behind the customer always?
 
Is there such an agent out there that price is the first priority but that's right after american customer service?

Company: Hertz thru Noach
Status: Golds Plus Prez Cir.  - though they didnt use it bec the lady at hertz said it would be double.
dates: 1 day july 18-19 2012
ordered: group E (mazda 2)
received: group H (Mitsubishi lancer)
price: 39$

though she didnt wanna use my card she was very nice and gave me an upgrade, (its poss bec the ppl before me were giving her a hard time about not paying insurance with their visa...lol)

Company: Hertz thru Noach
Status: #1 Gold
dates: various
ordered: smallest
received: group H (Mitsubishi lancer)
price: 35$ or so,

I usually get a nice upgrade from Hertz (Romema) when I reserve through NoachCar. It is also worthwhile to mention - Hertz points on rentals, a major benefit. I think now you get double mileage, so you should calculate this formula- Hertz=h, Competition=c, Point value=p (depends on you, I would give it between 10 and 20 cents each) =if((h-c)>h*2*p),c,h) example scenario (37-26)>(37*2*.2), ~11>14.8, so then rent from Hertz. Is that right? Comments?

Company: Albar
Status: NA
dates: Numerous
ordered: i10
received: last time - Mazda 2, before that Chevy Cruze
price: 26$

They are helpful if you are nice - polite. I usually prefer the 2nd class for the best mileage, IIUC bigger or smaller are less efficient MPG's.

If you are going to Albar, note they have a new number machine, take a ticket right away. If you are returning a vehicle, get a ticket before you clean out all your stuff...

Which AWD? I see a total of $1628.06 for your dates on avis.com

With National at JFK you can have a Standard SUV for $463.87 toatl this 2 weeks. you need to use their emerald club contract ID 5007125

Post by: Driver on July 25, 2012, 05:37:17 PM
Ok i got the answer.

Now, I don't have any experience with Avis, but with National even with your lowest status (emerald club-free) you are still eligible to choose from the emerald aisle which might have minivans in a green Tuesday..

See if they have any traverses in stock with 7 seats. Last time I was in ewr they had about 8. Maybe they will have in JFK.
Call up. But for a standard Suv that shouldn't be asking much

Thanks! I had already found the code. Just wondering if anyone has used the Florida code and asked for proof. I am from Florida and do have an official state license for my profession. If they ask, maybe they will take that? I'm renting in California also, like the post I was responding to.

That's great! Well, I'm hoping my official state licensure for my profession is enough. There are so many corp codes out there, how could they know what to ask for? Also, the rental is in Oakland, which is such a tiny airport. I can't imagine them being tough on customers. Thanks so much for sharing your experience!  :D

I researched it bveforehand - it seems like its all a matter of luck, some may ask and some def dont. either way shouldnt be to dificult to wiggle out of it.

The rentals will be from Wednesday eve until Tuesday am = 6 days. I didn't really use any coupons, so if you have some for me I'd appreciate it.

Avis - Presidents Club
Midsize
$264.47


National reserved via Enterprise - Executive Elite Emerald Club
Midsize
$240.77. They told me to remind them at the counter to add on  the USAA discount (ALNCGEN) which is %5 = -12 = $228

Hertz - Presidents Circle Gold
Nissan Altima 2-door or similar
$254.41

Aside from the $14-24 difference, where do I have the best chance to get  the best car/upgrade with my status? Anyone have a free day coupon or a free weekend day? What if i officially rent it for a week, get a discount, then drop it off early?

I am updating once again:

Called Hertz and told them Avis beat their price to see if there was anything they could do for me, they gave me a $25 coupon. new total is:254-25=$229

Welcome to FLL, shame my brother in law will be returning his Infinity M#& to Aventura not FLL, other wise you can try for that as presidents club.

I had to pay for one of the insurances- I forget which one- which about doubled the price but from my research there was no way around that one.

I booked it very early (about 5 months) so that is prob why I got such a great deal.

hertz you can call and add PC 168210 to get you $30 off your rental just have in mind that officially PC only gets upgraded till premium and if they have gold chice its easy to convince the guy to upgrade you to a better car
With my experience as 5 star you don't get unbeleivable upgrades unless you are/become friendly with them, when I rented consistently at local editions I would reserve compacts and would get at least a fullsize if not an suv, however in airports or "new" hle's I would only get one or two levels up

Avis had a Taurus in my slot, so I went to Hertz which wanted to give me a Mitzubishi Galant.I politely told them to find someone else to drive it.Their lot was empty so he had no other offers for me. On to National. I quickly saw that it was in a totally different terminal so I tried to call them to ask what they have sitting in the Aisle, after ringing for 4 minutes I gave up and went back to Avis. I asked nicely for a different car stating that I'm usually taken care of being that I'm Avis Pres. After hmmming and hawwwing for a minute he 'found' me a Mustang. All cameros and other cars were 'booked'. They did have a very full lot with many many nice cars. I took the mustang and we'll see how long I keep it until I try to swap it at the Collins location.

First I got a Liberty from PBI and right away the engine light went on, and the engine started acting funny, didn't accelerate past 50 mph etc. Called Roadside assistance and they brought me the Suzuki, a cute zippy car. The next day I went to FLL and told the rep what happened so he says ill see what i can do but don't shoot too high. So I said ok so I wont ask for an Escalade but how about a Genesis. Hes like ok I got for you! OH btw this guys name is Michael ( I think) and hes always by the preferred desk in FLL; hes the quickest agent I've ever seen. Before you manage to get out of your mouth what car you want he already has you in it and the RA printed up. Great guy but wont usually give a PC more than a 2 class upgrade. We go way back (as well as the jeep breaking down), is what got me 5 car class upgrade  8)

I got it because when I walked in there was a large line so I asked where is the gold desk, They told me they don't have one (online it said they did). However a minute later he went to the back and gave me the keys so it took me only about 5 minutes instead of a half hour, when I returned it he told me that he skipped to me b/c they didn't have enough cars for everyone in the room. If he would have not given me that car I probably would have gotten a convertible cause that's all they had left (and the other customers just had to wait for a car to be returned)

Price: 3 days @ 23.13 per day = 69.39 - $30 coupon and discount for using Amex Plat DCP + tax = $62.81
Coupon used: 135892 ($30 off weekend rental)

Company: National
Status: Emerald/ Executive
Location: JFK
Dates: 09/21-09/23
Reserved: Full Size
Received: Two aisles of choices in the "executive selection" which included a Caddilac CTS. (I realized afterwards, that I could have just reserved a mid-size for the same selection at a slightly lower rate.
Price:   3  DAY      @    $25.54  =  $76.62 less $20 coupon + tax = $82.76
Coupon used: $20 off weekend rental

I made both of the above reservations, but took the car from Hertz because it was cheaper, it allows me to return the car at one of the many Hertz local editions, and it also allows me an extra 4 hours with the Amex Plat. The Cadillac is less of a "grandfather" car than the Buick, but I was very pleased with the Buick and it was brand new, so I was excited to try it out.

4. was terrible. Had 31xxx miles and it definitely got beaten up in past rentals.

Brakes were squeeking too.
Would I gain anything by calling?

I hate when I get upgraded to an SUV. They are big hard to park and guzzle gasoline.

Sometimes It's nice upgrade but usually it's a downgrade on the gas, especially the small SUV's, I would take a Camry over the rav4 and a altima over the rouge

The code 185301 lots of times it will say it cannot work online but after you go to the next page and then modify it then it does work.
I paid $20 for a car yesterday for 1 day incl. Liability

which company is this code for? and what is the best code for me to use?looking for a car in fll. Would priceline come out cheaper?

Company: National
Status: Emerald
Location: MIA
Dates: 01/23-01/29
Reserved: Standard
Received: 2013 GMC Terrain
Price: $103.46-5.17 (discount code) +tax & fees=$162.95
Coupon used: Used corporate code (in my reservation it says Hilton Hhonors, and I think a 5% code.)

      I had a very good experience with National, start to finish, quick and smooth.

      Getting to the car rental area was very annoying, I left my wife and one of sons with the luggage in the airport terminal and took my other son (the 4 yr old) with me. I think it took about 15-20 minutes to get there. You have to go on a bunch of moving walkways and then you finally get to a shuttle that takes you to the rental area. Anyone that has to take their luggage with them makes the process that much harder. My son was a real trooper about the walk/run (it was late and didn't want my wife to have to wait). At one point he said "abba why do we have to walk so much my feet are getting tired". (Mind you this is at 10:30pm).

       Once we got there though, it was a breeze, I saw there was no line (no one) by national (I came equipped with a bunch of reservations, sixt, hertz, enterprise, and national), so I went up to the counter gave them my reservation and she told me to go down to the 1st floor. When I went to the 1st floor I gave my reservation papers to someone there and he told me to go pick any car in the second row (since I am an emerald member). I asked someone there to help me choose the best car and got a 2013 GMC terrian, which fit my wife and two kids with car seats and our luggage and double carriage comfortably. I forgot to bring my son's booster and she was nice of enough to give me a booster with charging and just told me to bring it back after I pick up my wife and drop it off with anyone by the exit. The drive was comfortable and in 6 days I only used half a tank. (it had a eco setting not sure if that had anything to do with it).

       Upon returning the car I was going to drop my wife and kids off by the terminal so they don't have to do the long walk and shuttle, but missed the Delta terminal and was going to go around when we decided to see if they would drive us to the airport. Lucky for me when I got there I asked one of the agents and he kindly told us that he could take us. Also I was supposed to fill up the car to full (as I opted out of the fill up service they offer when you first rent the car) and sadly waited till the last minute so when I got to National I had only a half a tank, when I told him that I didn't fill up the tank, he calculated the gas and told me he has to charge me their rate which is $5.08 per galleon (so it came out to $45), I had no choice and told him okay, but then he told me to give him a minute and when he came back to take us he said since we were a nice family and didn't complain, he gave me a discount on the gas. (I can't tell you how much since it's not the norm at all, so I wouldn't recommend taking the chance, and please don't quote me because it was totally unofficial, better fill up before, I just got lucky). He took us to the terminal and even helped with the bags so I tipped him for all his help and kindness.

All in all I had a very good experience and was very happy with the service. I hope this wasn't a fluke and look forward to renting in the future from them.

Thank you, figured why not give back to the forum and let someone else have an easier time deciding car rental companies.

Yep half a tank, we mainly did the beach and pool everyday and went out to eat locally with the one trip to bayside. The rental agreement says I drove 122 miles so it comes out to about 14 miles per galleon, I think. It was worth it even for the local driving because we have two car seats and having to carry them every time we wanted to go somewhere would've been crazy.

If you were executive all you do is pick a car and drive off the lot.

I am an executive member, I got it as a status match, how do I modify my post to show that?
I was able to do that I just asked someone to help me since it was the first time using national.

I had the car for a weekend - 3 days - the coupon was a generic one which gives you one free day IF you keep the car for the whole weekend, I wasn't going to pay for luxury car for the two other days just b/c the 3rd was free!

YUL-Monsey one-way rental, reserved the smallest car for $74 and when got there the guy by the counter thought i was crazy for thinking of driving a compact car so many miles he said he would upgrade me but the problem was the only other car he was able to let me take to the US was a brand new Dodge Charger, so he wanted to charge an additional $10 for it which i agreed to, however, the system didnt let it go for under $200 so called the manager for override access and just gave it for the original $74 with UNLIMITED miles including taxes and insurace.........

lax did priceline $15+ tax for a mid size for 1 day and got it from Hertz and when i went to counter they offered me a mustang or minivan. Took the mustang convertible and came with GPS. 

Just out of curiosity what rate would i have gotten if i kept for a few days? do they honor priceline or charge full retail?

Should say on your contact what an extra day would cost.  I've never used priceline,  but when you reserve directly from Hertz it is usually the same as you paid for the first day.

Its that he was underage..
one of the perks is I drive by a hertz local that has a car I like, and I call the plat desk tell them I want them to call the locations manager and say im coming to switch for it. 9/10 they say no problem swap for free. Did it to a few prestige cars from "luxury" where originally I rented F or G.

Ok to set things straight: Hertz has 2 classes of full-size cars there is the Impala and the Camry which is, in their books, a class higher (see here (https://www.hertz.com/rentacar/vehicleguide/?targetPage=vehicleGuideHomeView.jsp&countryCode=US&category=Car/Sedan#)). I probably would also take the new Impala over a Maxima but when you reserve a premium "like a Maxima" it also includes other cars in that class like:
Buick Lucerne   G   PCAR   
Buick Regal   G   PCAR   
Ford Crown Victoria   G   PCAR
Ford Taurus   G   PCAR   
Hyundai Genesis   G   PCAR   
Volkswagen CC   G   PCAR   
Volvo S60   G   PCAR
And I would take practically any of those cars over the Impala

Anyways that wouldn't work with this for sure because its the Ford "My key" system or something like that, its basically the key you give your teenager it has a bunch of other restrictions like the volume not going above a certain level and muting if the seatbelt isn't on...it's usually not even set by the rental company but by some other renter who played around with the car before you...

Since at hertz you are assigned a car (gold) i would assume that its all computerized and based on availability which would give you the higher class if they ran out of what you reserved. My point being that they dont have a person checking what you're status with them is and giving you a car with that consideration.  Any thoughts?

it's not an automatic process. they need to manually assign you a car.

Coupon used: BCD code for 20 % off

Worst rental experience I've ever had-It took 2 1/2 hrs to get the car.
Confirmation I had was for $104 but they would not honor it-
then went through 2 different cars both off the junk heap -all beat up(dents/scratches/holes in the seats/no air in the tires) they didn't have anything else to give me.
Took pics of everything-I brought along a tire pressure gauge. 3 tires had 27psi the 4th had 15psi-so I refused the 1st car-the spare looked worse than any of the tires already on the car. Also they had to add fuel to the tank.
Thankful we made it back safely.

Make a reservation with both. That way if National doesn't have anything for you, you just text Silvercar that you're there.

What do you call nice?
Is a Challenger or Camero enough, or do you need a Infiniti or Maserati (Premium Luxury)?

Infiniti type cars are usually a paid upgrade. You should be able to get a nice Challenger or something like that from the Executive Aisle.

Last time I asked, they wanted around extra $50 a day for Infiniti (or similar), and $100 a day for Maserati (or similar).

I think so. But it's nicer for you to cancel it if you end up taking the car from National, since Silvercar has a more manual system with someone texting you and coming to pick you up..

Overall service was very good. Between the line and waiting for them to find out which car it was, waited about 20 minutes, which is more than I'm used to using National EA but well worth it.

I got a reserved car which was a Impala so I went inside and asked if there's any other car available I can take so he looked on computer and said upstairs in the PC lot there's a maxima you can have. I asked him if there's any other options and he said no. So I went upstairs and got into the car and DW didn't like it so she asked the lot guy if we have to take that car. He said just take any car you like and go. So that's what I did. :)

Correct, you can take a car from PC if you are PC, and you booked a premium.
I only once booked a premium since they started UC there, and they gave me a Q60

You can always try to go in and try for a better car.
PSA: don't expect them to have your car ready and send a carfimation you likely will have to go in to get your car.

Found it in the executive aisle? Or you asked someone for it?

Should have just called Hertz and asked them to refund you the difference instead of calling Amex and getting yourself banned from Hertz.

I tried but the mustang was 300 more then the car i booked how that was go figure

they get you for going even 5km over. Speaking from experience. And when you get a brand new BMW 5series it's kinda hard not to speed

Got it. 5km/h is not much at all. I heard they were very strict so I made sure not to speed. I went in off season, so could be there was less police out.

Great new deal from Hertz!
Just booked a one way from NYC to FLL for $7 a day!
4 day trip in September that I needed booked anyway ended up costing me $90 sharp after insurance.

The rates seem pretty cheap right now, just also had a 53 day rental that was 1299
Managed to get a new BMW 740 from the aisle (not as an upgrade) too!
