    I am a president's circle member and I am treated as gold in locations in the U.S... Now everyone is Gold as its free.... Therefore, is my loyalty really valued ?

    Not much value in Hertz Gold. I'm surprised they don't honor your Prez Circle. I know I have the same issue with Avis when in other countries. You would think they would try to work on this. Car rental programs seem so dysfunctional.

    Rental car "loyalty" programs have rarely excited me. Indeed, having been burned a number of times, my current preference is to have reservations with at least two different companies. If I really don't like what one is offering me (oh, you mean you don't have a car for me?), I use the company next door.

    If your a UA Platinum or Higher you get free Hertz Gold Plus Presidents Circle (so I guess their are more of us around) I actually like Hertz and have been treated well by them.. Thanks and Safe Travels

    I like Hertz too and PC has worked well. They've offered to bump me up to the next level, diamond I think, if I pay $1,200. I assume they do the same for PC.

    They don't seem to respect presidents circle at all! At my local edition he openly scoffs at it.

    PC should get reasonable respect, but it does very franchise to franchise. In general, though, elite status with Cat rental companies is pretty lukewarm unless you're willing to pay for something like Hertz Platinum or Avis Chairman.

    I had to look to see what benefits I'm supposed to get as a PC member. I've been renting 3-4 days per week for the last year, primarily ORD or BOS, and I can't say I've seen one iota of special treatment!
