Hertz to become the first non-airline member of the SkyTeam alliance

This is, I think, a world exclusive.  I was with Caroline Simmerman, the Hertz Europe partnerships director, at a reception in Amsterdam last night and she told our group that Hertz has just agreed a deal to become the first ‘non-airline member’ of the SkyTeam airline alliance.

It isn’t quite clear how this will work.  All 20 SkyTeam airlines will, presumably, now offer miles via Hertz although this is unlikely to be exclusive given existing deals.  There was no indication of whether you could match SkyTeam status to Hertz status although I would imagine it is likely.

A full announcement is coming soon where we will find out the full details.

    I agree it’s lousy value. But if they get takers then who are we to judge?

    Also might be worthwhile if you can use the 2-4-1 deal that comes with the Chase BA card

    I mostly use Avios on American or JAL flights – very low fees.

    Are Marriott reward points bookings refundable ? In points I presume ?
