What's the best way to get a good deal on a Minivan on a monthly basis? Possibly for several months. I am Executive status.
If you're in the financing or e-commerce business, and need capital to grow, we should talk...

I just spoke to National Customer Service about the 1-2 free days, rep said they got an official memo from HQ that these are not to be extended whatsoever, and any requests are to be denied.

I apologize I'm a newbie to selling these, but what's the deal? Officially they're "non-nontransferable" and only for cars through full-size.
A. They practically are transferable? You can reserve the rental under someone else's name?

B. If AH has EE status, does that allow renter to choose from aisle even if renter takes larger than full-size?

They are transferable.

Whats AH? Isle is usally available based on status, depending on rep checking out it can make a difference if non isle eligibility vehicle was paid for.

A. The 1-2 Free days are stored in form of a coupon code, so anybody can use the coupon code to reserve out of their own account.

B. Renter can take whatever they are eligible for. If reserving Aisle, then whatever is in the Aisle.


They are transferable.
Not according to the T&C.

So one would basically be selling a coupon code, no work necessary on seller's end, correct?

Also, these officially are not valid for one-ways. Do they practically work for one-ways too?

Thanks!

Join Emerald club and you'll see aisle choice at airport locations.

I don't understand, how do you "reserve aisle"? The price only comes out as free when choosing full size and under. I don't see anything about choosing via the aisle ???  (I do  have EE status and just tried, basing off that)

Also, these officially are not valid for one-ways. Do they practically work for one-ways too?

Correct.

Reserve Mid Size / Full Size. At airport locations, that means Aisle (some times it will say so explicitly online, other times not).

Where did you hear that its not for 1 ways? It should let you select a rental as such online.

I don't know if it's still the case, but they used to show multiple daily rates on one ways. A cheaper daily rate with extra charge per mile, and a much more expensive daily rate with unlimited miles included.
Always double check that your rate includes unlimited miles..

If you are using free days then correct.

There are two types of free days, 2>1 and thru rentals...

A. The 1-2 Free days are stored in form of a coupon code, so anybody can use the coupon code to reserve out of their own account.

B. Renter can take whatever they are eligible for. If reserving Aisle, then whatever is in the Aisle.

Not according to the T&C.
I believe they allow some type of transfer up to 3 per account.
"Emerald Club members can transfer 3 free days per year to an immediate family member. Immediate family members include any family member that has your same address. To request a free day transfer, visit our Member Services Contact Us Page, by clicking here, for location specific contact information."

https://www.nationalcar.com/en/support/car-rental-faqs/transfer-emerald-club-free-days.html

Also I believe you can change one type of free day to another, forgot at the moment, what type to what type.

He's asking about the ones from 1-2 Free, as those are the ones that expire in 3 weeks and people need to get rid of.

They are officially non-transferable. Practically, they certainly are.



The regular ones are indeed transferable, up to 3 per year. Those sell for much more then 1-2- Free, as they have much better class availability (if status account) and expiration.

T&C: Earned Free Rental Day coupons may be redeemed to cover base rate (Time and Mileage) only for a rental day but does not apply to taxes, fees, surcharges, refueling, drop-off, delivery, youthful driver, additional driver, pick-up, or one-way charges or any optional product or service, which are the responsibility of the renter.

Thatís if there would be a drop fee or charge per mile.

There are the more expensive daily base rates that include any of that, and the coupon covers the full base rate.
