From What Company are You Really Renting Your Car?

Some people are threatening to take their business elsewhere to other rental car companies since Hertz implemented changes to its Gold Plus Rewards frequent renter loyalty program — including but not limited to redemption rates for rewards increased by as high as 81.82 percent; a new point usage cancellation policy; and other changes which became effective as of Monday, January 7, 2019 — but to which rental car companies should they consider patronizing?

What you may not know is that the rental car industry in the United States is mostly dominated by only three major companies — chiefly from a series of mergers and acquisitions over the years…

More Hertz Gold Plus Rewards Devaluation: Point Usage Cancellation Policy Now in Effect

As if the increase in the redemption of points by as much as 81.82 percent and other perceived negative changes which had already been implemented were not enough as part of the massive devaluation of the Hertz Gold Plus Rewards frequent renter loyalty program, a new point usage cancellation policy is now in effect — and it is practically buried at the official Internet web site of Hertz.

Massive Devaluation of Hertz Gold Plus Rewards 2019 With No Notice or Warning Whatsoever

“A heads up on the Hertz deal next week if you were going to cover it. In past years, this was an amazing deal and I purchased it several times. But Hertz just implemented (last day or two unannounced) one of the biggest devaluations I’ve ever seen (awards costs increased 50-67% across the board). The deal for next week is now completely inaccurate and misleading in its description (not their fault – Hertz did this completely underhandedly). As example, the 16,500 rewards now costs 25,000.

Be Careful About Returning Rental Cars During Late Hours…

I have already cautioned about returning a rental car after hours during the time when a rental car facility is closed, which is based on my personal experience; but you should apparently also be careful when returning a rental car during late hours when the rental car facility is open as well.

No one was available at the rental car facility at Orlando International Airport when…
