Hertz just announced a pretty interesting promotion: through 1/31/11 bring in a reservation with a competitor and they will match the price- and give you a $50 gift certificate for a future rental. This is valid on weekly and weekend rentals at airport locations only. Many weekend rates at airports can be had for $50 or less, so this if you have a bunch of rentals coming up, you could really make out with this promotion. The things that I dislike about the promo are: 1) hope that they have rentals left since you can’t have an advance reservation 2) Have to go into the rental office (I love my Hertz #1 Gold status which lets me bypass the twilight zone aka rental counter) 3) This promo excludes Metro NY, Florida and Hawaii) in the month of December
Tip of the hat to TPG reader Sam for the heads up on this one!
