You get free days by renting. Emerald member gets a free day for every 7 rentals, executive every 6 and EE every 5.

Dont forget, there are other ways to earn free days.

Here's the breakdown of the program:
A) Each qualifying rental earns 300 points.
B) A free day is earned with 600 points.

C) Other ways to earn points, here's some of the ones from last years promo:
1] You are able to get 75 points (can be earned x4) for making a rental using the mobile app.
2] 250 points for pre-paying gas (x1)
3] 250 points for renting from a neighborhood location (x1).
HT: lubaby

Regular free days (not the ones from the special promo) expire on December 31 of the year following the year in which they were earned.

All types of free days work on one-way rentals.

PSA - If you are buying a free day from someone make sure you are an emerald member.
Without this they won't allow you to use the coupon.

Do these work for one ways into Canada?
I try to sound as intelligent as possible.

They've always worked for it, but I think it's been hard or impossible to book a one-way into canada these days. Maybe with 3 days minimum?

My BIL had one booked from Teterboro to YYZ for yesterday and the manager called him and cancelled it a day before pickup. Claimed there were no cars available.

TARB if you're able to book it online and if you actually get a car.

TEB is a FBO location (contracted). Meaning the owner likely didn't want his vehicle going on a one way to Canada and being stuck there; which makes sense. EWR would have been more practical for your BIL. Should not have this problem at any corporate location.

He only tried TEB because EWR (and everywhere else for that matter) were showing no availability for 1-day one-way rentals into canada.

Yes, with caveats.

I've rented like this multiple times, but have only found availability from and to large airport locations, never any others.
It's easy to find available a week or 2 out but last minute is really tough.

For before pesach I was only able to find from EWR-yyz, not lga or jfk, but the earlier you book the better your chances.
Jfk had cash availability but not for coupons, those are more restricted sometimes.

When going from Canada to the US:
Pricing is very cheap, like $125cad without any codes.
Canada has a higher included liability coverage.
There was much more availability, but only to airport locations.
They will force you to take whatever lame US car is on the lot, unless there are none in your class, then they will give you a Ontario car, so it may be worth getting a coupon that lets your rent premium (BMW/Volvo) etc for the same price, so they are forced to give a nicer car.

Enterprise often let's you pickup at a canadian airport and drop at a local location in US, also like $125cad one way.

ETA: for those driving to Toronto, the Niagra falls bridge border crossing is much nicer to deal with.

Just diagnosing, checking if the locations in general talk...
If it's not available there isn't much you can do

Nice write up thanks!

Keep in mind the above is only your toronto experience not necessarily applicable to the whole Canada.

APFR please post a asking price.
Why is it necessary for it to be released before February?
