Two Promotions: Earn Up to 5,000 Hilton Honors Points on Car Rentals 2019

You can earn up to 5,000 Hilton Honors points every time you rent a car with National Car Rental, Alamo Rent A Car, and Enterprise Rent-A-Car at participating locations worldwide through two different promotions…

Two Promotions: Earn Up to 5,000 Hilton Honors Points on Car Rentals 2019

…but which promotion you choose depends on the duration of time you rent your vehicle.

With either car rental offer — both of which rentals of vehicles must conclude on Tuesday, December 31, 2019 — you earn a minimum of 500 Hilton Honors base points every time you rent a car with the aforementioned rental car companies.

Promotion 1: Earn Up to 5,000 Hilton Honors Points for Renting a Vehicle Up to Nine Days

For this specific promotion, earn 500 bonus Hilton Honors points for every rental day for one day through nine days. Earn an additional 4,500 Hilton Honors points for car rentals nine days in duration or greater for a total of 5,000 Hilton Honors points.

Bonus Hilton Honors points earned are based on the duration of the qualifying rental based on the table shown below — for example, only one Hilton Honors bonus points award tier can be earned:

Select Terms and Conditions

Reservations outside of the United States must be booked 24 hours in advance.

Bonus Points do not count toward elite tier qualification. This offer is subject to change without notice. Please allow up to eight weeks after the conclusion of the qualifying rental for the posting of points to your Hilton Honors membership account.

The Primary Driver’s Hilton Honors number must be provided at time of reservation. The name of the member associated with the Hilton Honors number provided must match the Primary Driver’s name on the rental to qualify for mileage awards. Only one Hilton Honors member per car rental will be credited with points. Special contracted corporate or promotional rates such as employee, net tour, travel agent, group, wholesale or package rates, crew, insurance/dealer replacement or other or non-revenue rentals do not qualify for points. Multiple rentals that encompass different cars on the same or consecutive days from the same location shall be counted as a single qualifying rental even if the member checks the car in and back out during the same period.

Discounts apply to base rate only and is valid at participating locations worldwide through Tuesday, December 31, 2019. Discount only applies to reservations made through this site. Discount varies by rental date, location and vehicle type. Taxes, other governmentally-authorized or imposed surcharges — including GST/VAT, license and concession recoupment fees, airport and airport facility fees, fuel, additional driver fee, one-way rental charge and optional items are separate charges not affected by the discount offer. Renter and additional driver(s) must meet standard age, driver, rental qualifications and credit requirements. Discount applies to vehicles reserved in advance for rentals up to 30 days. Rates are as posted at time of reservation. Weekly rates may apply depending on length of rental or for longer rental needs.

These offers are not valid with any other coupon, offer, weekend special rate or any other discounted or promotional rate. Subject to change without notice. Void where prohibited. Vehicles subject to availability. Other restrictions, including holiday and blackout dates, may apply. Enterprise Rent-A-Car pick-up and drop-off service is subject to geographic and other restrictions.

Hilton Honors membership, earning of Points & Miles when booking direct, and redemption of Hilton Honors points are subject to the restrictions, terms and conditions of the Hilton Honors frequent guest loyalty program. Other restrictions, terms and conditions — including those of the best price guarantee and the Hilton Honors discount — may apply.

Summary

If you are renting a vehicle for five consecutive days, you will earn a total of 3,000 Hilton Honors points from either offer — but neither promotion is as lucrative as the offer from last year through which you could have earned up to 7,500 Hilton Honors points per vehicle rental with a duration of as few as five consecutive days.

I have never rented a car from Enterprise Rent-A-Car again after I was charged an extra day because the location to which I returned the car was closed — nor have I rented a car from Alamo Rent A Car in at least 15 years after the company reneged on a published deal with my particular vehicle rental — but I still recommend renting a vehicle from National Car Rental.

Neither of these offers are bad if you already planned on renting a car from the aforementioned rental car companies — but ensure that you are getting the best rate among the competition first.
