Hello, I'm trying to book a car from Hertz in Upper Saddle River, NJ, for Mar 29 - Apr 9, I used 2046380 CDP# to waive underage fee (i'm 23) and my total is $351, I have 2 questions.
1) it says in their terms and conditions `if you're under 25 additional charges may apply`. How can I know if the code worked or I will be charged underage fee(in fact even if I don't use the code I got the same total)?
2) I tried to use all PC# from the sheet http://bit.ly/hertzsavings but the total was always the same and I got the same message every time
You won't get charged,
Here are some codes to try
CV code
022L5102

PC code

310353 (some times works)
196066 phone only

204095 $5 off wkend/wkly day 4/15
204096 10% off weekly 4/15
204093 15% off weekend 4/15
204094 rent 7 days pay 6. 4/15
203975 $40 off weekly AAA 3/31
203710 $20 off weekly AAA 12/31
203713 $50 off monthly AAA 12/31
203708 $5 off weekend day AAA 12/31

Thanks a lot.
Only the following codes worked for me
  • 204095 $5 off wkend/wkly day 4/15
  • 204096 10% off weekly 4/15
  • 204094 rent 7 days pay 6. 4/15
The 10% gave me the best rate $323.81.
The CV# didn't work.

What can 196066 give me?
Any other discount or free upgrade codes are appreciated.

What free upgrade? Anything I can think of, the answer is no.

Still the answer would be no, and these upgrades aren't exactly guaranteed.
