The exclusive partnership between United Airlines and Hertz — which became effective as of Saturday, November 1, 2014, according to this article written by Susan Fleming — provides benefits for members of the MileagePlus frequent flier loyalty program when renting from Hertz, Dollar and Thrifty worldwide.
Before you consider participating in this promotion, compare the rates of Hertz with competing rental car companies to ensure that you are indeed getting the best deal — otherwise, you may be paying more money than necessary in order to earn those bonus MileagePlus miles…
…but if you are a member of the United Airlines MileagePlus frequent flier loyalty program and you plan on renting vehicles from Hertz anyway, then definitely take advantage of this offer.
