How to win 100,000 Virgin Atlantic miles with Hertz car rentals

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

When renting with Hertz, our recommended rewards partner is Virgin Atlantic.  

As you can see on the Virgin website here, most Hertz rentals earn 1,000 Virgin Flying Club miles.  This is a very good return for a short rental, although if you are renting for a week a partner offering a small number of miles per day may be more lucrative.

Hertz and Virgin Atlantic competition

Until the end of the year, you can get an even better deal.  As well as your base miles, you can also win one of 10 prizes of 100,000 Virgin Flying Club miles.

Everyone booking a rental before 31st December, for collection before 31st March, will be automatically entered.  You need to use CDP discount code 730279 when booking and credit the rental to Virgin Flying Club.

More details are on the Hertz site here.
