$50 Hotel Gift Card When You Rent With Hertz — But…

You can earn a gift card worth $50.00 — which can be redeemed at greater than 400,000 hotel and resort properties around the world and includes major lodging brands — when you rent a midsize car or larger for a minimum of three days; and you receive your hotel reward code by choosing one of two options offered by Hertz:

  • Immediately upon reservation using the Pay Now option with RQ HOTEL
  • Upon rental completion with the Pay Later option with PC# 204525

$50 Hotel Gift Card When You Rent With Hertz — But…

Keep in mind that all reward credit codes expire on Tuesday, April 30, 2019 at 11:59 in the evening Pacific Daylight Time; and this promotion is valid in the United States — excluding territories and possessions — and you are limited to only one reward credit code per customer name, per customer e-mail address, and per customer household. Multiple reward credit codes cannot be combined for additional savings.

In order to earn and receive your hotel gift card worth $50.00, follow these simple steps:

  • Upon a qualifying rental, receive an activation e-mail message from Hertz
  • Click on the email CTA to automatically receive a second email with your hotel reward credit code worth $50.00
  • Enter your hotel reward credit code on HertzPlusHotels.com

Select Terms and Conditions

Offer valid when you rent an intermediate car class or larger for at least three days. Offer may not be used with other discounts, promotions, or special rates. Only customers who receive an e-mail message from Hertz+ Hotels with the promotional offer will be eligible to receive the hotel credit. The reward credit code is subject to change and while supplies last. You must be at least 18 years of age to redeem a reward credit code. The reward credit code must be redeemed in one transaction; and no credit or refund will be provided for any unused portion of the reward credit code.

The reward credit code cannot be combined with any other offers or discounts and cannot be used towards gift card purchases; but reward credit codes which have not yet been activated are fully transferable. Once activated, you cannot transfer the reward credit code or change the personal information of the account. The person activating the reward credit code must be the same person traveling or using the service.

Other the terms and conditions — as well as additional restrictions — apply to this offer.


The offer states that you need to rent a midsize car in order to be eligible for this offer; but the terms and conditions of this offer dictate an intermediate car class. This can potentially easily cause confusion to customers.

Although the terms and conditions of this offer specifically state that “Only customers who receive an email from Hertz+ Hotels with the promotional offer will be eligible to receive the hotel credit”, I doubt that this promotion is targeted for two reasons:

  • Because it is visible to everyone with no targeted codes — I even clicked on the e-mail message which I received and received no second e-mail message — and
  • Because this promotion is not exactly the greatest one ever offered by a rental car company. For a more lucrative promotion with less hassle, try the One Two FREE promotion from National Car Rental with which you can earn a free rental day for every two qualifying rentals or every time you earn 600 points between now through Thursday, February 28, 2019 — and at least it is not a one-time deal.
