Hertz Rental Car for $4.99 per Day

This past weekend I needed to rent a car for four days. The cheapest I found was Hertz with their advertised $14.99/day at participating locations. Not bad at all considering this was about $50 less in total than any other company I was finding.

As I was taking the Hertz shuttle to the airport location, I was looking through my email to try to find my Hertz number. While I couldn’t find this anywhere, I did come across an email where hertz was advertising $10 off a day up to $40 in total. I gave the promotional code number it to the representative, and what do you know, an additional $10 a day off my rental. After looking at my receipt, it looks like the taxes and service charges stayed the same (which really do add up at an airport location), but my per day cost ended up being $4.99! In total I paid $52.04 including taxes/fees for my four day rental which is SUPER cheap!

Now the caveat is when you enter both the $14.99/day code plus the $10 off/day code it will not work. Actually the $14.99/day rate will not even appear. I tried replicating the rental on many different days in the future and it did not work. The best is to book at the $14.99 rate and when checking in giving the representative the additional $10 off promotional code. Now, I cannot guarantee this will work everywhere, but I do not see why not. The representative I spoke to didn’t make any magic happen and the computer system accepted the code with ease.

  1. maybe its me!
    But when the page gets to choose a car, nothing shows up on the page.
    I choose las vegas airport as the pick up and drop off. I tried using both firefox and IE and same thing.

  2. I just used $10 off/day down in Cancun last weekend so for a 3 day weekend it only cost me $15 all in. I had used zalyn.com to find.

  3. Aarash – I just booked five days (2-6 November) at HNL and got a rate of $17/day for an intermediate. It ain’t $14.99, but it ain’t $54,99, either! Keep trying.

  4. I was having the same problem using the $10 off coupon code. What I found was that once you make it to the “Choose a car” page after entering dates/location/etc, go back to “Edit Itinerary,” enter the promo code (135892 is the one I have for $10/off a day…) and go to book again and it works. Not sure if this will work for all locations or what, but I haven’t had any problems doing it this way yet. Hope this helps!

  5. I couldn’t get the 14.99 per day to come up for a Thursday thru Monday trip In January to SLC. Is there an additional Coupon Code that needs to be entered in?

  6. This worked. Booked using Rate Code XCT1 along with AAA 10% discount code. The PC 173946 would not apply online, so once I received my confirmation email, I called Hertz reservations and asked them to apply the PC. It instantly took $30 off and I got the car for $4.40 day.

    Thanks a lot for sharing this!

    • @Sharma – That’s great it worked before even arriving at the rental counter. Thanks for letting me know that calling works!

  7. I got all three discounts to work for a 4 day New Orleans trip. The key to getting the $10 off was to switch it to Hertz Points and not miles. I used RQ code XCT1. AAA discount, and promotion 135892. Hertz Gold is running a triple point promotion as well.
