    Nice!
    Thanks just registered. This is actually (for Hertz) a pretty good promotion.

    Wonder how long it will take for points to post.

    Just registered...500 points for free is nice.

    Also, my rentals are pretty much 1 day rentals always, so i'll be essentially getting double points (or more!) on ever rental now through september

    Awesome

    Awesome! I was planning to use the Budget/HHonors promotion for a rental at the end of July, but now it looks like I'll be using both!

    After I registered this was on the screen

    Thank you for registering in the Hertz Gold Plus Rewards Offer.
    You just earned 500 points, enough for a FREE Weekend Day!
    And, each day you rent until Sept. 30th, you will earn 100 bonus points*!

    But when I looked into it closer, in the terms and conditions Australia is not listed as an eligible country :(.
    Perhaps next time.

    Strange as I remember announcements several months ago that Reward Points were coming to Europe, but I've seen nothing so far....

    Well, mine haven't posted yet, so I'd say at least six hours, probably more :)

    A new perk in the program: points no longer expire as long as you have activity at least every 24 months.

    For Hertz, this is a heck of a promotion! Maybe they are doing thier part to head off a double-dip recession...

    I was trying to think of some cases where this might be of interest to some people who are not in the habit of getting 1-day rentals, and one particular destination came to mind: Hawaii.

    A 1-day Hertz rental from the Hyatt Waikiki in September is showing (when the website isn't melted down) as about $87. Or instead use your free 500 points for a free day for a day touring the island. And a couple could together get two free 1-day rentals by having each of them sign up for the promo. If you are both AAA members, then there's no additional charge for an additional driver. So the same person could drive on both days. (See below.)

    This same scenario would be useful on other island destinations where many travelers only want a rental for day excursions.
    How would I add someone to my rental to drive if they are an AAA Member?

    If you and the other person are both AAA members, your CDP or Club Code for AAA must appear on the rental. You will need to sign the additional driver form at a Hertz location, but there will not be any charge for this.

    Are award rentals combinable with paid rentals, without having to have two contracts?

    Excellent point.

    I believe so. If you want to book a 3-day weekend rental, for example, you could book a 2 free weekend day award but enter the date range for 3 days.

    For those who have no interest in using the points for a weekend day, 500 points can also get you a double upgrade.
