Hertz Pick-Up Service — Or Trying to Use It, At Least

I decided to rent a car for a road trip from Hertz; and because the closest rental car facility which is operated by Hertz is located fewer than 15 minutes away from where I am based, I qualified to request Pick Up Service, which is available at no extra charge.

I have never tried Pick Up Service with Hertz; but the thought of not having to leave where I was as the rental car was delivered to me appealed to me — plus, I have rented cars from this Hertz Local Edition location in the past and never had any problems.

The following statement was included on my reservation once I booked it…

Did Hertz Remove Yet Another Feature of Gold Plus Rewards With No Advance Notice or Warning?

“I’ve recently paid attention to the dollars-off redemption options. For example, 600 points for $30 off. Can be a reasonable redemption value when rates are low. If rate is $15/day, this yields two days for 600 points, versus 1500 points required under the newly-worsened reward chart. Obviously better for customer. And if Hertz corporate is concerned about redemptions on super-high-priced vehicles at peak time, this also helps protect them against that” is what veteran FlyerTalk member bedelman posted in this discussion. “Today the dollars-off redemptions are no longer appearing for me within hertz.com, and also appear to be missing from https://www.hertz.com/rentacar/ememb…points-program. Gone for good? What a double-whammy that would be.”

The following awards were not…
