    I had to cancel/rebook a Hertz reservation twice a few hours before scheduled pickup due to flight changes. I now have two authorizations for a total of about $600 on my Chase card, and I suspect a third one is going to hit the card any minute now. Is it normal for Hertz to authorize before the car is picked up? (this is a Gold rental).

    My local HLE would always authorize $200 over the amount of the rental, even if I don't show up, but it's always on the day of and not before.

    Yep. That's why authorizations are transient.
