Aeroplan members can earn up to 9,999 miles when renting an Avis car by March 31, 2011. To earn the 9,999 miles you will need to rent a Premium SUV such as a Chevrolet Suburban for five consecutive days or more at participating locations in Canada. You can also earn bonus miles on other car classes: 2,500 bonus miles for sub-compact and compact, 5,000 miles for mid-size to full-size and 7,500 miles for premium, SUV and minivan rentals.
Bottom line: The maximum bonus miles don’t come cheap with this promotion. We searched for rates in mid-November and found a five-day rental of a Premium SUV in Montreal was CAD$1,049.99. On the lower end, a compact car was CAD$199.99. If you’re looking for a cheap way to earn some bonus miles, this promotion is a pricey way to pad your account balance. But if you have plans to rent a car in Canada in the next six months, Avis’ promotion comes with a generous mileage bonus. Blackout dates may apply and you must make reservations in advance.
