In the future that question belongs in the Hertz master thread- Usaa on a one way with Hertz will be per mile charges.

With National EE status you get access to the Executive Aisle, that should give you better cars then a Premium. You get to pick from any car there.

I called them and they said otherwise, how they only offer full sized vehicles in the executive isle. Do you have any suggestion with any other company wherei can get a good rate on a luxury or premium car? Say avis/hertz?
