Hertz is 100 and has launched a Centenary car rental sale

Hertz has been running various promotions this year to celebrate its 100th birthday and has now launched the official ‘Centenary Sale’.

It runs until Monday 12th November, although logged-in Gold Plus Rewards members will be able to book until Monday 19th November.

It is valid for rentals picked up before 16th December across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.  Both pre-paid and pay on collection rates are included.  All car groups are reduced but not vans or the ‘Dream Collection’ of performance cars.

Hertz Centenary sale

The headline deal is ‘up to 25% off’, with a higher ‘up to 30% off’ for Gold Plus Rewards members.  As always with the murky world of car rental pricing you should treat such claims with a pinch of salt.

However, if you have any rentals booked between now and 16th December you might want to reprice them just in case the sale does throw up a bargain.

Details of the Centenary Sale are on the Hertz website here.

  1. Andrew S says:

    O/T: My SPG Amex points for September statement appears to have bounced back to my Amex SPG account, a week after my August statement points appeared in my SPG account.

    Seems odd 🙁

    • Mine too, Andrew S. I got my August points about 10 days ago, followed by my October statement points last week. Only the September ones were still missing but, as I’m out of the country, I hadn’t contacted Amex again about them. Was intending to do it when I got back. Am hoping these will now just go across in November with November’s points and then it will actually work properly from then.

    • Same for me, hopefully all the points will reach my SPG account next month.

  2. Mr(s) Entitled says:

    Am I the only one who finds the prospect of Hetz starting vehicle rentals in 1918 Europe odd? There must be more to their corporate history than this. At least I now know what I will be searching for during my morning coffee break.

  3. Is there any update on the mooted Avios devaluation that was being held up by the IT system? It’s always moderately tempting to buy miles at a 50% bonus rate but I’m wary of doing so if they’re going to tank in value soon.

    • Was the BA offer not just for last weekend?

    • Changing the number of Avios for a route should not require any IT changes. Someone in the business should be able to change it on a screen.

      • the apparent change is to provide for dynamic pricing of avios not just changing the fixed number of avios needed so the IT is indeed more tricky.

  4. The Marriott game wouldn’t let me select the correct answer yesterday. Not so much a game, more of a fix…

    • How you answer the questions makes no difference to the reward received – just click anything.

  5. OT – AMEX Hilton offer
    Has anyone tried the new Hilton £250 get £50 back offer with prepaid payment? I will check out on 1st Jan so too late for the offer.

    • I’ve used similar offers before and as long as the hotel charges before the offer end date it’s always processed fine.

      • That’s good. I’m looking at some of Rob’s suggestions for a London hilton in a week or two, and would definitely appreciate £50 off!

  6. OT – IHG “double points plus more” promotion. Can anyone confirm whether you need to earn ALL 15,000 double points for it to count towards “complete 4 of 4 offers”? Thanks.

    • After three stays the counter on my double points target is showing 12% complete and is therefore not counting towards my completion bonus. While that seems ludicrous – I’d need a stupid number of stays to achieve it ~ I’m not hopeful of persuading IHG of this.

      • Thanks for the feedback. Very annoying as it means needing 15,000 base points – around £1300 before tax.

  7. OT: Given it seemed everyone had got better a better amex deal than me on Starbucks spend, I checked my BA blue card and saw I had the 20% off offer on there! While I doubt I’ll be using that, I’ll definitely be using the “Spend £5 or more and get 500 avios”. Terrific deal.

    • Such giveaways seem worryingly commonplace at the moment. The devaluation must be imminent.

  8. OT as bits: If I use Creation IHG Platinum card to pay for an ihg property abroad in a foreign currency – do I get 4 points per pound because it is a foreign currency or do I get 8 points per pound becuase it is a foreign currency and an IHG hotel? Latter is probably to good to be true 🙂

  9. Looks like today is my lucky day, I won 10k points in the Marriott game!

  10. OT – Marriott Rewards Question – We are planning to stay at the St Regis NY next year. Our timetable only allows us to be in NY for a maximum of 4 nights. We will be using reward points for the booking, so the cost of booking 4 nights will be the same as 5. Is there anything we could do to avoid wasting a night?

    If we booked up for 5 nights, is there any way we could we cancel the 5th night and receive any points back?

    • don’t think so, but might be worth having the extra night depending on the time you plan to leave. If you have a late flight connection you will have the room all day.

    • No. What you can do is book 5 nights and so guarantee yourself a late check-out – book yourself the 10pm BA flight to Gatwick back and stay in the hotel until 6-7pm!

      You will pay another $50 resort fee though.

  11. OT: I signed up to Amex Platinum and have had it for 8 months. I have done maximum referrals. If i downgrade to Gold, will i need to pay the £140 annual fee? Also, will I be able to do more referrals. I know I will only get 9k as opposed to 18k.

    • Have you paid any fee for the Platinum yet?

      • Yes, was charged the full fees after a few months. I’ve had t since February.

        • I thought gold charge card not exist any more. Not sure if you could downgrade from a charge card to credit card.

        • I thought you just meant change over to Gold. If you cancel Platinum you will get your fee refunded pro-rata, then presumably you will get your first year free on the Gold credit card but no sign up bonus as you won’t have had the 6 month break.

    • Yes, fee kicks in immediately. No more referrals until 1st January as they go by MR account.
