How to Earn Free Days With Hertz Spring 2022

Yes, a free day of renting a vehicle is still possible.

Rates for renting a vehicle have been rather expensive over the duration of the past couple of years due to both demand significantly outweighing supply — partly as a result of shortages of products and materials which are needed to build motor vehicles — and the current 2019 Novel Coronavirus pandemic, among other factors…

How to Earn Free Days With Hertz Spring 2022

…but Hertz is offering several ways to earn free days — and a free day of renting a motor vehicle is arguably worth more now than a couple of years ago.

Keep in mind that with all of the offers, the free days apply to time and mileage only and do not include applicable taxes and fees, for which you will be responsible to pay. The free days also do not apply to optional services. Blackout periods and blackout dates apply for all offers.

Hertz reserves the right to modify or cancel any offers without prior notice.

Other restrictions, terms and conditions — including those of the Hertz Gold Plus Rewards frequent renter loyalty program and those of prepaid vehicle rentals — apply.

Now that those disclaimers are out of the way, here are the offers for free days…

1. Rent a Full Size Car For a Minimum of Eight Days

Rent a minimum class of full size car with Hertz at participating locations in the United States and Canada for a minimum of eight days through Sunday, July 31, 2022 and enjoy one free day — but you must book your rental car reservation using promotion code 210402 a minimum of 24 hours prior to departure by Thursday, June 30, 2022; and you can only earn a maximum of one free day per rental.

Enjoy full flexibility on Pay Later rates with no prepayment, booking or cancellation fees. Book now to take advantage of the savings and get the best car to fit your needs.

This offer is valid for self-drive rentals on Affordable Rates — or leisure retail rates.

Vehicle models may differ and specifications may vary by location. Vehicles can be reserved by car group only and not by particular car model or color. Fleet is subject to change without notice.

Minimum rental age applies; and all drivers must be in the possession of a valid driver’s license, which must be held for at least one year.

No other rates, discounts, or promotions can be used concurrently.

2. Get Hertz Gold Plus Rewards Points Towards Two Free Days as a Member of the American Automobile Association

Rent any vehicle at participating locations in the United States and Canada through Thursday, June 20, 2022 and earn 1,500 Hertz Gold Plus Rewards points — which can be redeemed for up to two free days — but you must book your rental car reservation in advance using promotion code 210742, your AAA Club CDP# or discount code, and your Hertz Gold Plus Rewards membership number by Thursday, June 20, 2022.

You must present your AAA Membership card at time of rental for identification.

The 1,500 points — or up to two free days — will be added to your Hertz Gold Plus Rewards membership account after 60 days. Benefits and discounts are redeemable at participating Hertz locations in the United States and Canada.

3. Rent Almost Any Vehicle for a Minimum of Three Days

Courtesy of AutoSlash, which is a free service that saves you money on renting vehicles worldwide with no risk: you can rent almost any vehicle for a minimum of three days at participating locations in the United States and Canada through Thursday, December 15, 2022 and earn a free day — but you must book your rental car reservation using promotion code 210709.

This offer is arguably the best of all three offers.

Final Boarding Call

Coupons, discounts, and free days for rental vehicles are more difficult to come by these days than in years past — but hopefully, these three offers for free days will help to at least ease the pain of paying the cost to rent a vehicle…

…and if you are not already a member, you may join as a member of the Hertz Gold Plus Rewards frequent renter loyalty program at no cost to you — members can skip the counter at greater than 50 airport locations worldwide while earning exclusive benefits, points toward free rentals, vehicle upgrades, and more — and you can then take advantage of the promotion with the American Automobile Association.

If you decide to take advantage of at least one of these offers, ensure that you are indeed getting the best value for your money before committing to any of them.
