Also try Priceline.

I have 2 reservations for Hertz that are priced significantly less than at Hertz.com.

As normal, serra rocks the travel deals. worship Just a note that this PC# yields higher prices than the plain USAA cdp. (Same for other PC#s.)

IOW:
  • Enter USAA in CDP field and this PC, 204281, in PC field.
  • Note prices.
  • Edit itinerary to remove this PC#.
  • Note that resulting prices are lower than with this PC.
  • Repeat with any other PC# available, results are similar.
No combination of USAA cdp and any PC# beats USAA by itself currently.

When is a discount really a price increase? Anyone at Hertz want to explain?

Tried priceline.com (thx) but found prices slightly better with just the USAA cdp.


EDIT2
Absolute BEST prices are thru Costco Travel >> Enterprise (1-week at $105 for midsize in SE MI). But those are apparently limited (maybe one allowed per quarter?) so found a second best:
Book through AutoSlash [autoslash.com].
Amazing that Priceline is higher when booked directly and lower through a third party. Ex. Same car at Hertz was $132 (AutoSlash >> Priceline >> Hertz). Direct at hertz.com price was $153.

The only drawback was losing the protections from the USAA cdp. Keying it during the booking process caused fatal errors.

Do you have to show USAA ID or proof of membership at pickup?

No, not in my experience anyway. Have never been asked by Hertz for USAA card in 100+ rentals. (Got the number memorized anyway, if they ever do.)

Did discover, though, that the killer deal via AutoSlash >> Priceline was by way of a AAA discount THEY added. Not a AAA member so hope no trouble with that.

EDIT
Not asked for AAA card so no troubles. YMMV.

The AutoSlash/Priceline engine appears to be applying the discounts that produce the lowest price, but without regard to customer eligibility. This does not feel secure since the deal can fall apart at the counter, leaving few options at the last minute.

Thanks for the code. I will have to compare it with Autoslash / AAA ( am a member) for my usual Hertz neighborhood location.

My usual place to book car rentals - Autoslash.com (see discussion - https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/r...on-35.html) and costcotravel.com

Autoslash asks for a list of affliations that you are eligible for and generally only uses those or generic coupons/pcs.

Once booked it would be a good idea to double check the code applied in the reservation to make sure you are eligible for it.

Thought it was clear enough to write in bold: "without regard to customer eligibility." IOW they ignored the checked affiliations and "applied the discounts that produced the lowest price," as I wrote.

Hottest current deal is directly thru Hertz using FLASH as RQ. Ex. Scored a two-week mid-size for ~$170, an incredible $85/week. Also was able to use USAA in CDP for extra protections and without changing the price. YMMV?

RQ is "rate quote," the third of three regular discount fields you'll see on visiting hertz.com. (May need to click checkbox at "Enter a Discount or Promo Code" to see it.)

The first is CDP, where "USAA" can be entered if a member -- it provides no extra discount or protections with this deal if not a member.

The second is PC, "promo coupon," which is often used to discount the prices further, but is left blank with this deal since all PCs will yield a higher price.

(Maybe a sign that one is renting too much if able to write all the above from memory. Smilie

Not sure the deal's still on, but u can give it a try. Can also try changing rental locations for better prices. (Ex. The one I posted was from just over the border, in Toledo.)
