Some places hertz will place the hold on your CC even before you show up
avis will do that too if you're preferred. But if you don't show up the hold will fall off

I booked a reservation using hertz points (still paying $85 after taxes) and the points deducted when I booked the car 2+ weeks before travel...
Most other companies will not charge to cancel

Hi,

While on the topic, I am flying into MIA and need a car rental. My dates are 1/23-1/29, I am looking for a full size or if the price is right a standard suv. I also found carrentals.com the cheapest with Fox or Sixt, both showing a full size of $133 total. (there is a 15% off coupon for sixt)

If anyone knows where I can get a better price, tried priceline and they were way to high.

Thank You,

Tzvi

are you a emerald member by national ?

No, would it make it cheaper than fox or sixt if I'm a member?

Okay, does anyone know if it's free to become an emerald member. Are there any risks signing up?

Free. Risks? Nope.
And you can SM jj1000 to hook you up with some status I believe.

Okay thank you sky121, I appreciate that.

Does anyone know if the free upgrade is guaranteed, if I order a full size will I be able to get a standard SUV, (which I think is the next level)?

When I put in my dates the total came out to be $157 which is more then fox and sixt, but if I can get the free upgrade it's worth it.

Thanks

P.S. Someone mentioned before that national is not trustworthy and a lot of times doesn't have cars, my flight gets into MIA about 10:30pm, and I am traveling with two kids so the last thing I need is to not have a car available.

Upgrades are never guaranteed. Their always based on availability. Also the next size up from full size is premium, not SUV def not standard SUV maybe you can get a compact SUV.
National is as reliable as Avis, Hertz etc ..they're one of the standard rental companies.

Huh? What do you mean take whatever car you want instead of what you reserved?

Anyone know if the above is true? I thought National was a "National" brand.
