When and where is the Hertz President Circle match coming, when you are Platinum Marriott Rewards?
Thanks for the question. We are looking in to exact dates and will be in touch when we have an update.
All the best,
As a PP I like the option to be in "the Presidents circle" and have lots of rentals booked for 2018, I am a gold member already so hopefully this new upgrade will be applied to my forthcoming rentals
hallchr You should be good to go. Hertz assigns upgrades at the time of rental, so once you are Presidents Circle you are good. That being said I have noticed PC is overrated at certain airports. Land at 9 am at LAX and there are literally 300 other people with that status. At LAX (and some other locations) there are a group of cars in the PC section and you grab one and go. Typically the upgrades go quick, so if you are lucky you get one.
Hertz is expanding what they call "Ultimate Choice." If you book a "intermediate" car (or above) you get to choose from any car in your assigned area (Hertz Gold, Five Star, Presidents Circle, etc.). There are also areas for upgrades (for an additional daily charge). I find it to be pretty easy. I'm at the Five Star level, so all I do is walk to that section of the lot/garage, pick any car in that area and drive to the exit. No searching for the exact parking space. Just choose a car and off you go. It seems to be at all the major airports these days.
Hi, Thanks for that, mine is a collection at the Starwoods in San Francisco for a drive down to Santa Monica, The Airport in Malaga, and the airport in Porto in Portugal so hopefully should be ok for an upgrade
The program became active on Jan 25 and you need to sign up at https://mrhertzstatus.com/MemberStat
Presidents Circle matching is only for Platinum Premier members which according to the person I spoke to on the phone at Marriott Rewards is the top 2% of all members.
Can any Platinum Premier members confirm if this will still be a benefit?
My MR account is still (I think) incorrectly showing Ambassador Status (I'm short about $1000 according to the app) but filled out the form today to see if they give me President's Circle. I'll just do it again next month when I officially cross the spending threshold if it doesn't work this time.
Don't rent cars much anymore but have a week long rental starting tomorrow. Wish I saw this earlier lol.
Many months ago I requested Hertz status upgrade online as I am PP. All I ever got back from Hertz was an email that they were researching my eligibility.
I am getting the same response. This HERTZ programme match is earning a bad name to otherwise an excellent programme; the marriott/spg rewards. Specially with platinum lifetime members, it's more hassle than a benefit.
