This Post is Giving Away $1000 and Elite Status!

The past several days I ran a giveaway of gift cards and car rental status.

This was all courtesy of National Car Rental – to highlight their One Two Free promotion.

There are (5) prize winners, each to receive a $200 gift card and Executive Elite status.

Not only do Executive Elites get to pick from the Executive aisle of higher category cars (as National Executive status allows) but they earn free rental days faster and in my experience are able to redeem those free rental days for premium vehicles.

To enter I asked readers to leave a comment answering the question, what is the one thing that can make your car rental experience better?

  2. One thing would definitely make my experience better would be addressing the toll charges issue…. I have never been lucky with that…

  3. Easier, or at least less confusing ways, to redeem points. Hertz makes this a very strange experience.

  4. Some consistency in pricing. Company A will rent a car for a week 3-4x the price of another company. Same car.
    Make loyalty programs actually mean something again and I will come back instead of looking for the lowest price.
