Many people don't realize how quickly you can rack up miles with car rentals- especially if you are traveling for 3+ days a week. If you are a consultant and only one person in your group rents a car, try to become that person! Yea, its more annoying with expenses, but you can walk away with a loot of miles.

Personally, I use Hertz and bank all of my rentals to Hertz points. For every $500 in spend, I get a free off-peak weekend rental day (which is when I rent cars for leisure). As a NYC resident, a weekend day can easily be upwards of $100, so in essence I'm getting as much as a 20% return on my rentals. I have a boatload of miles, so it makes more sense for me to bank Hertz points.

For those of you who don't need car points, but would like to bolster your mileage accounts, see below for resident Flyertalk rental car promo expert Evan!'s hotlist. The expiration date on these promos usually get extended or better/new promos come out, so don't worry if they expire soon- I'll update when the new promos are out.

How we chose these cards

Our points-obsessed staff uses a plethora of credit cards on a daily basis. If anyone on our team wouldn’t recommend it to a friend or a family member, we wouldn’t recommend it on The Points Guy either. Our opinions are our own, and have not been reviewed, approved, or endorsed by our advertising partners.
