National Car Rental - Free Emerald Club ($50 Value) & Good Contract IDs for Discounts
Deal DetailsLast Edited by Jon02131 April 26, 2008 at 07:28 AM
While poking around looking for good deals on rental cars to go to Disneyworld (Orlando), I found the following page
On it is a number of excellent money saving tips for travelling and staying at the various Disney properties, but more particularly in this case it unearthed some money saving options for National Car Rental. I completed the enrollment with no problem, then used the VISA INTERNATIONAL Contract ID to get full insurance coverage and a one-way, one-day rate of $38.50 (taxes includes, no gas) from West Palm Beach to Orlando dropping off at the Disney Car Care Center right on the property!
FREE EMERALD CLUB ENROLLMENT (Normally $50, no annual fees) - Benefits include bypassing check-in line, choosing your preferred car from whatever is available in the Emerald Club section of the lot, and other benefits listed on the National Car website. *NOTE* - There may be numerous ways to enroll for free, which there often are for these programs, so this is just one way of doing it.
1. Click on http://www.nationalcar
2. One the National page, click on the "go! Enroll Now!" link on the upper left side and you'll be taken through the enrollment process.
3. After putting your personal registration info in, you will eventually end up at a page that lets you confirm that the enrollment fee has been waived.
4. After enrollment, you will get a confirmation email with your number, then you can go back and create a login/password to get into the Emerald Club section of the site and you're good to go!
IF for whatever reason the link does not work, you can try using this link to get directly to the offer. No guarantees on how long this specific link will work, and author claims no responsibility if the redirect on SD does not work on the link!

Visa Card International Contract ID is 8572987. This is a great ID because it is valid internationally and in addition to providing up to a 20% a discount on your base rate, it includes many fees that can add to the cost of your rental. For instance, on an Orlando rental I found it covered the Loss Damage Waiver, Supplemental Liability Insurance, Concession Fee Recovery Charge, Florida Surcharge, Tire/Battery Fee and License Recoupment Fee. Reservations must be made in advance and are subject to availability. Certain blackout dates may apply. Discount may not be combined with any other discounted or promotional rate. National Car Rental's standard terms and conditions of rental from the renting country plus driver and insurance qualifications apply. Offer available only to Visa cardholders when paying with their Visa card at time of rental.
Warehouse Clubs like Sam's Club and BJ's Wholesale Club may have contract IDs - if you belong to one of these, check with your local store.
Other affinity groups (universities, bar associations, etc) may have Contract IDs with negotiated rates - if your organization offers free Emerald Club memberships, it almost certainly has its own Contract ID.
There are also a number of printable coupons and and more detailed instructions on how to do various redemptions. Hope this is of help to a few of y'all!
