The maximum upgrade is to a full-size four-door car with a minimum reservation of a compact vehicle. Upgrade is to the next car class only. Special equipment — such as minivans, sport utility vehicles, Adrenaline Collection, Green Traveler Collection, Prestige Collection and Dream Cars vehicles — are excluded from upgrades.

Confirmed availability at participating locations only applies to economy through full-size four-door cars in the United States and Canada with a minimum 48-hour advance reservation.

Other terms and conditions — including those of the Hertz Gold Plus Rewards frequent renter loyalty program; of the Marriott Rewards frequent guest loyalty program; and of the Starwood Preferred Guest frequent guest loyalty program — apply.

Summary

One unfortunate casualty of this partnership is that Avis is no longer a partner of Starwood Preferred Guest as of Sunday, December 31, 2017; but reservations booked prior to 11:59 in the evening on that date with scheduled vehicle pickup dates through Friday, March 30, 2018 will be honored and earn Starpoints…

…and Avis is still a partner of World of Hyatt.

If you have earned the aforementioned eligible elite status levels in either the Marriott Rewards or Starwood Preferred Guest frequent guest loyalty programs, then register as soon as possible for complimentary elite level status in Hertz Gold Plus Rewards in order to enjoy the benefits it offers for the next time you rent a car from Hertz.
