I'm not one to start new threads, but after lots of googling, I still need advice: I've moved the majority of my rentals to National, but Avis is still my second choice and I'm probably renting 5-8 times/year with Avis. About half of those are local rentals, which won't credit miles to a US domestic program, so I'm looking for an int'l Avis earning partner. Gary L. has voiced his preference for Virgin Atlantic. The other strong contender is Miles & More. I'm wary of both on account of fuel surcharges. Am I missing any other options? Bottom line... which program is best for earning miles/points solely through Avis rentals? Thanks (as always) for everyone's help.
