…but you must log into your Gold Plus Rewards membership account at the official Internet web site of Hertz and use PC#205337 and use either a promotional CDP number or your own Gold Plus Rewards member CDP number if you have one — in the appropriate fields at the time of booking your reservation, as those promotion codes must be present in the reservation.

Points are only available on rentals booked at the official Internet web site of Hertz as you are logged in as a member of Hertz Gold Plus Rewards. Offer applies to bookings and pickups for a limited time. This promotion cannot be combined with any other offers, promotions, or discounted rates. Points will appear in membership account 30 days after the rental of the vehicle has been completed.

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.

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

Interestingly, a similar promotion from June of 2020 was supposed to be in effect through Thursday, December 31, 2020; but that offer mysteriously disappeared. The promotional codes are different — as well as which countries are participating, which has been narrowed down in number to ten countries…

…and finally, the date at which this promotion concludes has not been specified.

Although this is a good promotion from Hertz and no significant downside technically exists if you plan on renting vehicles from Hertz anyway this year, you may want to keep five things in mind before devoting yourself to this promotion:

  1. Although more restrictive, Pay Now rates — which do not qualify for earning double Gold Plus Rewards points through this promotion — are usually less expensive than rates with which you would pay later and may actually be a better value for you.
  2. Check the destinations to which you plan to drive the rental vehicle, as certain jurisdictions may have special rules in place — such as quarantining yourself for 14 days or not allowing citizens of certain states to visit — as a result of the current 2019 Novel Coronavirus pandemic.
  3. Certain regions do not participate in the Hertz Gold Plus Rewards frequent guest loyalty program, as Hertz Gold Plus Rewards points can be earned and redeemed only at participating locations in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Saint Thomas in the United States Virgin Islands, Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands. For Hertz On Demand 24/7, qualifying rentals include rentals only in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany and Spain.
  4. Hertz Global Holdings, Incorporated — which is the parent company of Hertz — has filed voluntary petitions for reorganization under Chapter 11 in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware; but this is likely not to have an adverse effect on you
  5. FlyerTalk members have been reporting experiences in which they have had considerable difficulty in redeeming Hertz Gold Plus Rewards points for renting vehicles, with some of them finding it virtually impossible to do so.
