Not that it directly applies to this, especially because you didn't actually specify what you're trying to do, but as an aside, if you're matching over from Hertz to National, I would just mention that I've recently found that Hertz's elite statuses have been essentially worthless. I've been Hertz PC for over a year now, and I've found their service to be steadily decreasing. First they downgraded PC from a 2-class upgrade to a 1-class, then they made it only if available. As a PC I haven't been getting any special treatment or cars any nicer than I would have otherwise gotten. (Interestingly enough, I found this to be especially true in NYC airport locations, you can read into that what you like.) I finally got sick of it to the point where I matched myself to National Exec Elite and have been using them of late, and I gotta say, the service has been superb thus far. In my last two rentals, one I landed in EWR and the entire Emeral Exec Aisle was Maximas, Avalons and Yukons, I drove a brand new well-appointed Avalon with 6 miles on it, the second rental was in MIA, the Emerald Exec Aisle was mostly empty, so with very little pushing, I got the attendant to give me a free upgrade into the Camaro Convertible that they had parked there for the upsell. In both cases I only made for a midsize!

So to those trying to match in the other direction, I would be wary.

Does National (or Alamo) pick you up and drop you off?
Do they have a drop box for after hours returns?
Title: Re: National Emerald Club
Post by: Yosef_S on January 29, 2015, 03:25:07 AM
Not sure about picking you up, but I know for sure that some National locations allow after hours returns, it'll say it on the locations page on the National site if they do.

Do you specifically need National? Enterprise offers both pick-up and after hours returns, and rentals with Enterprise can earn rental credits in the National program. (In fact, if the rental is from an Enterprise location which is in an area that isn't served by National, which is basically most neighborhood locations, then the Enterprise rental would even qualify for National promotions such as One Two Free.)

are you sure about that?  I remember reading somewhere that it needs to be from National to qualify for the 1-2-free promotion.

Post by: Yosef_S on January 29, 2015, 01:07:02 PM
are you sure about that?

https://www.emeraldclubpromos.com/12free/2014/?action=outer.faq

"Do I receive credit for rentals completed with Enterprise®?
You can receive ONE TWO FREE bonus points for an Enterprise neighborhood rental if you qualify for that bonus opportunity. If you qualify, the Enterprise neighborhood bonus opportunity will appear on your Bonus Opportunities page on the promotion website. Other Enterprise rentals, not considered neighborhood bonus opportunity rentals, are not qualifying ONE TWO FREE rentals and will not result in ONE TWO FREE points outside of the bonus opportunity, but will count as a program credit on your Emerald Club account if you use your Emerald Club number on the rental."

Title: Re: National Emerald Club
Post by: Yosef_S on January 29, 2015, 04:41:45 PM
One. Two. Free. is a promotion that National is running which ends on 1/31/15 where for every two rentals you make, you get a free rental day.

I don't believe that there is any official ugrade given at Enterprise for National elites, but it prob doesn't hurt to ask.

I signed up for the national emeral executive  promo but only got until 2016, is it bad to cal and ask for the extension  to 2017?

By the way, is it just me or does national not have any codes to waive underage?

And in general, whats the best method for cheap prices with them?

Whats the issue? First you get the car due to you're status, and at the gate add him as an additional driver.

Ended up calling and was told 2 additional drivers are free.

W/ ur executive status u have access to the emerald aisle if the location u r renting from has one and u chose that option. The aisle has tons of cars and u can chose any one at the midsize rate. No guarantees of what will b on lot. It's first come first serve.
If there isnt an emerald aisle just rent the midsize and ur gauranteed a one car class upgrade (full size) at same rate..

U get executive status w/ amex plat

I was sitting already in a Tahoe what i took from the Executive Aisle! in
LGA, at the gate a manager came to me and told me to step out of the car, i
was arguing with him for a while, then he told me if I'm taking it out he
going to charge me for the SUV rate. so i took a mini van Siena XLE.

he was right? it was the first time having a problem taking out something.

I'm trying to figure out his name, I'm going to post his name everyone to
watch out from him.

i thought i can take anything no matter what car class.

I just went to pick up a car from Nationa at LGA and had a whole ordeal renting from the executive aisle since I'm under 25. I picked up a 300c from the aisle bc with executive status and the free days I've always been able to take wtvr I wanted from the aisle. When I got to the gate I was interrogated and told under 25 I'm limited to a Chevy Malibu or standard size car. (Yes I use a corporate code which waives underage as well)

I've never heard that rule before and maybe it's exclusive to LGA. I have rented from national many times in the past w/o issue.i rented a 300c in Maui and a Rogue at LGA a few months ago. They took the car away initially from me but after some threats to call corporate they brought it back. However once getting it it smelled like urine and smoke and I didn't have the patience to deal with their management again. Last time I rent from national at LGA.

They showed me the new policy and I looked it over quickly. Officially in their policy as long as u are coming from a flight or driving to airport for a flight u can rent anything off the aisle even under 25. After pointing that out they brought the car back and didn't want to deal w/ corporate.

No, was not given on purpose. The manager tried getting them to clean it for me when I complained but a 5 min cleaning is def not enough to get those smells to go away.

I've had the wrong dob for just under a year, no one ever mentioned anything to me. Although I imagine if they were trying to find a reason to void out a contract that may be an issue.

Hi, I'm an Emerald club member and I can get an intermediate SUV for 219 in FLL by Enterprise or Emerald Aisle by National for 229 (intermediate SUV is 372), which one should I take? Meaning, is it likely for me to be able to get an SUV in the Emerald Aisle? Is it worth the extra $10? I am 23 and most likely wouldn't want to drive a full size SUV.

Emerald aisle is hit or miss. Sometimes there are SUVs and sometimes there aren't. So if you really need an SUV I'd say it's worth the $10.

Check out the thread on FT that updates the cars at national Fll. Seems to be pretty well stocked normally..
Also, I'd imagine the rate you have at enterprise is not pre-paid..? Then you can check out the national lot to see what they have, its nearby.

And if you would want to pay for an upgrade, National is cheaper per day for that upgrade.

Emerald Club Updated Terms and Conditions FAQ - Decemer 2015
Published 12/23/2015 11:04 AM   |    Updated 12/30/2015 04:15 AM
Q: What action is required on my part?
A: Members residing in Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Chile, Costa Rica, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom must explicitly consent to the revised version of the Agreement in order to be bound by it. To consent to the revised terms, you need to log onto their Emerald Club account.

For Members residing in other countries, no action is required.

Under the terms of the agreement, the changes are applicable to all Emerald Club rentals on or after January 1, 2016. If after reviewing the updated terms and conditions you do not wish to accept them, you can cancel your membership by contacting Member Services at 8421 St. John Industrial Way, St. Louis, MO 63144, or 1-800-962-7070, 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time seven days a week.

 

Q: Why are you changing the terms and conditions of my Emerald Club membership?
A: We modified the terms and conditions to improve the services or reflect the business needs of the Emerald Club program, to provide additional clarification, and to comply with legal requirements.   


Q: Have you taken any benefits away?
A: No we haven’t changed your membership level or how you achieve membership tier status. You will keep all of your rental credits, and the way you earn credits and redeem free days stays the same. Furthermore, Emerald Club services such as counter bypass and Aisle access remain unchanged. Counter bypass service is being expanded to include several countries in Europe.  Click here to learn more about Priority Service.


Q: What changes have you made to the Agreement?
A: The following is a high level summary of the key changes to the Emerald Club Agreement. It is meant as a brief overview and not as exhaustive list of all changes to the agreement. You are encouraged to review the entire agreement before making your next Emerald Club rental.

• Residents of Australia can become Emerald Club members
• Counter bypass service has been expanded to Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, and United Kingdom.
• Removed several non-participating Enterprise locations in Canada
• Clarified language regarding the Partner Rewards program
• Added language allowing Administrator to update Renter Profiles to correct Contract ID numbers.
• Updated Location Specific Disclosures and Notices
• Added country-specific rental terms for Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, and United Kingdom
• Modified list of Owner’s subsidiaries referenced in Master Rental Agreement
     


Q: My corporate travel manager wants to know how, if at all, these revisions will impact our corporate agreement.
A: Corporate agreements are not mentioned in this document.  Each corporate agreement should be considered independently.  If you or your travel manager feels there is a conflict, you should direct any questions to your legal team.
     


Q: Why is the agreement so long?
A: The length of the agreement is due to the master rental agreement language which must include all of the vehicle rental disclosure requirements for most of the fifty states in the United States, Canada, Belgium,  Costa Rica, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

Sounds like they can now remove corporate codes from your reservation. Or at least, prevent you from using them on future reservations.

Nope. In that case the underage spouse is not allowed to drive. No matter what the agent at the desk says. I rented with Avis once and agent said spouses could drive no matter what. I read through the rental agreement and it said clearly that spouses are only added on as an additional driver if they are over 25. Under 25 they have to be added on and will incure underage fees.

If this is different by other rental companies let me know.

So that's why. You have to be 21.

B. Emerald Club Program1. Eligibility: Because of the nature of the services offered in the Program, you must be at least twenty-one (21) years old to enroll as a Member. If you are not twenty-one (21) or over, you cannot enroll in the Program, and Administrator will reject your application.

No Aisle. Just a regular National "Local Edition" facility.
Aisle is an Airport thing.

As EE they are usually willing to give nicer cars pending availability.

Not everything in life revolves around your needs.

It's helped me many times and I'm sure countless others from having to schlep to the closest airport to rent from National (1 ways, free day codes etc..).

All I was saying was that Hertz for the most part is more convenient than National. If National has a better deal and works out I will book for people through them or whichever company is cheapest but it just usually doesn't work out that way.

Happened earlier last week. A couple managers were fired. It's a regional move to:

A) Restrict under 25 getting more than a Full size
B) Raise prices on suv's

Also, last week at JFK, manager asked if I'm local or flew in. Seems that if you're local they aren't required to give you a full size.

That's been going on for a while, apparently when you fly in its less of a possibility of them losing the car (extensions, one ways) so they'll give you bigger/nicer cars

Sure, don't even mention it to them. I've taken higher than full size from JFK (and all over the US), but seemed NY area cracked down a lot in the last week.

Just go to the aisle, take a car, and see if the gate agent stops you. Hopefully not

Just picked up a van from MIA with CA State no problem as well.

Upthread was reported that under 25 took out a mustang. IME, Any premium car flags their system to ask for flight info. Tried 3 times in the last two weeks at JFK, all hours. Fullsize is no issue. Officially, local can only get a standard.

Did the renter have a tri state license?

At first no issues as it was covered under policy but after some time they said I would have to pay as they contacted company and I did not have employment there - Have you any experience with a situation like this.

How could you be covered under policy when you were using a code for a company you don't work for? You didn't seriously think Siemens would say, sure pay for the damage for this non employee who utilized our corporate code with insurance.

I would recommend you use Jewish community or another contract code that doesn't have the risk of being flagged in their system.

No ID to prove belonging to the Jewish community. I told him I had proof, but it was NSFW. JK.

Eventually a RavKav basically did it. He was too arrogant to admit he didn't read a word of Hebrew.
What kind of ID could prove it anyhow? There are thousands of "Jewish communities" around the world.

You got status matched to Executive Elite? Otherwise, how are you EE if you've never rented from National before? I know how people get Executive status, but am curious about EE.

Why not guess the obvious? Amex plat gets National EE status.

Is your EC number on the reservation? If it is then shouldn't be a problem. If it's not you'll have to go to the counter or perhaps call and ask for it to be added.

don't know how this happened but heres the situation. just logged in to my profile, and my birthday is a year older than I really am. (this actually makes me 25 in the system now). in order to change it online, I get this quote "Requests to change a Name or Date of Birth require a signature and legal documentation. For more details, call Emerald Club Member Services."

1) if I keep it, do they ever check the birthday in the system? any data points on that? because if not, I save myself an underage fee...(ive never rented with national yet, but I'm executive elite)

2) if I do switch, how big of a deal is it?

Won't be able to get a minivan from any of the big companies. Probably the same with the smaller ones.

What about a Heimish company?

For an additional driver, that could work*. Just make sure to use a corporate code that waives underage and gives free additional driver.

*My one experience with a similar situation was before I turned 25, I had a reservation with Enterprise in Brooklyn for a premium car. When I got there the agent said he can't give me a premium since I'm under 25.
I asked him if he can switch the reservation to have DW (over 25) as the main driver, and have me be secondary.
He said that would work, as spouses can drive for free as secondary without him adding anything to the rental.

Not sure if him adding me to the rental would've not allowed him to give us the premium.

I'm specifically asking about National as it's half the price of anywhere else. I can't find a heimish place that has.
I don't even really mind paying underage for him.

National confirms they allow this and I've done this quite a few times. Which location was this?

Sidenote..You MUST be in the car physically for both rentals upon pickup. You cannot just add AU and let them try to check the car out without you being in it. I'm guessing this is where you went afoul.

Here's what I do. Pick up 1st car with AU in passenger seat next to me. Check out at the gate and drive back around to the front entrance allowing the AU to take control of the car from there. Pickup second car. Try to go to a different booth to avoid confusion. No problem the few times I've done it.

That part is obvious. They'll never allow an additional driver to pull out of the lot. I don't have personal experience with trying though.

You must be the exception to the rule, I've had personal experience with unsuccessfully taking out 2 vehicles. I've also heard quite the stories of people who tried circumventing the system by pulling out two cars.

Was able to book multiple cars. Picked up 1st car with AU in passenger seat next to me. Checked out at a national location. Drove to a second National location. Picked up second car. First location called and requested to return one of the cars because the rule is you can only get one car.

Odd. How would the first location even know the second location reservation system. You still haven't mentioned the location/locations? Wondering if they were corporate or franchised.

Other's have had success so it isn't just me. National customer service also confirmed you can have more than one car out at the same time, though I would never try more than 2 at once.

The only other thing I can think of which might be a factor is possibly insurance? I've had full insurance on the cars when I've done it.

Starting to rent about twice a month for work and I'd like to use the same agency consistently to build up points/status whatever. I have Exec status with National through Amex. The prices of Avis seem to be usually cheaper but how about their points and rewards compared to National? Or other agencies for that matter? Open to advice and opinions. Thanks!

Depends on length of rentals. If they're short term (1-2 days) then use National (free days); if long term (4+) use Hertz (points)

Ignore that

They wouldn't let me out of the lot without ID. I didn't have any so they adjusted the rate to the regular rate. When I came back I made a mistake of asking for it at the front desk.

IME if you're coming from a flight or going to a flight they don't give you issues. If they question you show them your itinerary. Jay (the manager at LGA) is the one who told me that rule from the National terms.

JFK updated its terms to only allow up to a standard even when flying in.
LGA officially only allows up to a standard but the manager is ok with giving up to a full size.
EWR still allows most cars but you have to fight for it.

Is it possible to rent two cars under my account at the same time? I plan on making AU on one of them.

Yes.

You must be the exception to the rule, I've had personal experience with unsuccessfully taking out 2 vehicles. I've also heard quite the stories of people who tried circumventing the system by pulling out two cars.

I rented two cars from the same location. Rented a minivan for the family. 2 days later needed a second car for biz trip and had no problems.

As we speak here, i have 3 vehicles on my name, with AU. all taken from the same location - LGA.

Couple of data points.
All worked.
2 vehicles same place same day.
2 vehicles separate location different days.
2 vehicles same location different day.
With the separate location incident they made a comment to me about having a car out but still let me rent

It's not hard coded to not allow you to rent. It's up to the agent to allow you to leave the lot with another car or not.

I saw the couple get in the Corvette so I asked what's them how much is it per day? He said he reserved a mustang and when he was at the desk( this was 2am so you first have to go to desk before going to aisle) she offered it at no extra charge.
So when she was walking us to the aisle I asked what other nice cars she has, so she said only thing she has left is the Maserati and she said she'd gladly give it to me

Forgot to mention that when I declined the offer she said that's a first! And told me I can bring the van back in empty

Not really. It all depends on the agent, whether or not you get an upgrade. I have never really pushed, as it really doesnt matter too much to me. On the occasions where i have asked, most of the times i have gotten something different. IE. convertable BMW 3 series, Infiniti q 50, lincoln nav, x3, etc.. but im a big guy, and for me the chrysler 300 works well. Its powerful, roomy, and gets pretty good gas mileage.

In most cases they let me go. I always reserve Compact and Drive Tahoe's QX80 and ATS's but every once in a while the welcome person makes problems.

Anyone ever make a rental for round-trip dropoff, then call to switch it to a one-way while they have the car?

I'd be using a free day that covers one-way, but my preferred pickup location says no vehicles available for one-way rental on my dates (it is available for round-trip though so that's BS). Additionally, other nearby locations that do allow a one-way are blocking certain car sizes (anything larger then Full Size).

I tried calling once before I had the car and they weren't able to change it (same situation). Didn't end up needing that rental so don't know what would've happened if I tried after..

If you can book one way with a regular cash rate you can call in later to apply free day
Sometimes they block OW only when using Free day

It was round trip and it's not available indeed. I ended up reserving Alamo for a minivan from Next Sunday for a week for $604. Last minute, I know, but ridiculous. Search online and you will find pretty much all others for $1,500...

9th is Palm Sunday.
16th is Easter Sunday.

So it was blocking one-way when not putting in any corporate, or even when putting in Jewish Community. Put in California State and it "magically" showed availability, although only up to Midsize (but that could be since I made a reservation 20 minutes before pickup, which was 30 minutes before branch closed for the day).

Midsize or not, drove out with a Chevy Tahoe  :)

Premium gives you access to the Aisle and the Emerald Reserve spots for Premium, FullSize, Midsize, Compact & Economy. Don't mind the app not displaying it.

BTW, careful when choosing premium in that screenshot as it will take you to the fullsize pricing if your a executive member. The fullsize pricing looks to be quite a bit higher. Choose luxury if available or call National to book the reservation. They can force the Premium price to lock out the Executive "one class lower" benefit.

You can call in after the rental to apply a free day.

You can call in middle of a rental to change the return location, except one-ways to canada (or canada to the us) where you'll have to call the branch.

If you change a rental to a one-way, it'll reprice the whole rental not only the last day

If booking thru Enterprise and crediting to National, do I still get 1,2 free credits?
If renting from a Enterprise Neighborhood (non airport) location, you’ll get the bonus opportunity (200) points for that, but no regular 1-2 Free points. You’ll still get regular National credits though.

Just checking: reg national credits are 1 credit per rental, regardless of rental length? I know that 1,2free need min length of 2 days

How do I earn credits?

If your rental is 1 - 7 calendar days, you will be rewarded 1 credit
If your rental is 8 or more days, National rewards you even further by dividing your total rental days by 4. This means:
At 8 rental days you earn 2 credits
At 12 rental days you earn 3 credits.

Will be in Orlando for Pesach and wanted to book a minivan. the difference between a midsize booking (and being able to choose any car in executive aisle) and booking a minivan specifically is about $300. I was wondering if anyone has ever done this by making both reservations and then cancelling the minivan reservation last minute so that I can take the minivan through the midsize executive aisle selection at the lower price.

No such a thing as EE aisle. The nice cars they put there are available only for daily upgrade fees. Confirmed that with multiple location managers. ( although some you can bargain with for a larger car, never a luxury)
 Btw, in the tri-state area they have no "derech eretz" for EE for obvious reasons..

Sorry - here's the clarification, There's no EE aisle, there's an Executive aisle @EliJelly was referring to the Premier section which costs more, althou EE gets special pricing. Elite adds:

The main difference is 1,2 free days expire in June and are only good for up to a fullsize car. Both are good for one way rentals, except in places which restrict coupon use (Manhattan).

From 1-2 Free? Yes, they have a code online you can give.
For regular free days, you need to call CS and have them transfer it to the other person (takes a few days to process). What they essentially do is convert the day into a code and then email the code.

Happens all the time where they don't want to deal with 1 day people. Sometimes I've seen even 3 or 4 days is not available, only longer periods.

Picked up a BMW today. USE THE APP to checkout! They have a new self-checkout feature. You find your car, follow the prompts on the app to scan the car into your reservation and you are done. You have to show the gate the barcode on the app and they scan it and verify your drivers license. 2 seconds and done. I was using a different code today, not the one I posted, but I spent a total of 10seconds at the gate. They scanned the code on my phone and then just glimpsed over my ID and opened the gate. For you folks playing with codes, make sure you have everything you need online. Your CC, license, status helps, and you will be one and done. 

This was in Boston, this morning. BTW, I didn't like the selection this morning and told the dude in the National section that I was Executive Elite and wanted something different. He asked what I wanted, I told him a BMW 3 series. He went to Alamo or Enterprise and grabbed one for me. Legit!

Good luck folks!

In LGA they refused to let me use the Honeywell code unless I showed a Honeywell ID. It ended up tripling the price of the reservation. Any ideas on how to argue after the fact to refund some of it. As I needed the car for a short visit and didn't have the time to pull up other codes or rent with another company.

What is there to argue? Either you have a Honeywell ID or you don't. You accepted the terms of the rental, when you drove off the lot after they removed the Honeywell and repriced the car at the going rate.

I had one free day in my account, while checking one way rental  it gave unlimited miles. I converted it to a code and now it shows a charge for mileage for same trip. Is that normal?

i never pay attention that it says that,but  probably just means they are reserving right to readjust if something is messed up in the calculations or maybe the car is damaged. Dont think you need to be concerned.

It means they reserve the right to go back and alter your final total based on a few factors. This can go either way, whether them noticing damage/excessive dirt resulting in additional charges or them overcharging you resulting in a refund.

My guess was tolls and tickets as well.

Haven’t done or checked one ways in awhile, but there used to be a button to click “view rate options” and pick a higher daily rate (which didn’t matter since the coupon covered the whole thing)  which included unlimited miles.

All 3, National, Alamo & Enterprise are at the same location, separate offices.

Do you have one in your account, look to see if it works for you.

I always felt that the ability to choose any car with an EE free day is not an official rule at all, I couldn't find anywhere this being an official benefit for EE, therefore I'm happy when it shows up, but I wouldn't call in demanding it when not, I'm afraid they can eliminate it too.
