As a AAA member, you're poised to unlock a world of benefits. These benefits extend into the car rental space, with AAA and Hertz teaming up to include exclusive car rental perks for AAA members. Instead of putting extra miles on your own vehicle for your next vacation or road trip, consider the benefits of booking with Hertz as a AAA member.
Whether you're seeking easy car rentals, exclusive savings or an enriched travel experience, AAA’s preferred partnership has you covered.
The Power of Partnership: AAA and Hertz
Renting a car can be more than just a tool for travel, it can be an opportunity to try a new model, experience an EV or simply save wear and tear on your current car on vacation. Both Hertz’s attention to detail and the trusted reputation of AAA allow you to rent without worry. This alliance combines AAA's benefits with Hertz's services, granting members exclusive savings and privileges. With this cooperation, renting a car is no longer a hassle; instead, it's an opportunity for drivers to enjoy priority service, add an additional driver for free, take advantage of special offers and gain new travel experiences.
Exclusive Savings for AAA Members
There’s a wide range of offers, deals and bonuses to find within the partnership of Hertz and AAA. Some of the free perks include:
- Free use of a child safety seat
- Free addition of another qualified AAA driver to your rental
- Waived young renter free for AAA Members ages 20-24
Other savings include the following:
- Up to 20% off all rentals
- 10% off prepaid U.S. rentals (online-only)
- 10% savings on prepaid fuel when you add a fuel purchase option to your rental
Perks Beyond the Road
Imagine embarking on a family road trip, knowing that a child safety seat is complimentary and your child is secure. Look forward to sharing driving duties with an extra driver – a fellow AAA member – without incurring any extra charges. Picture being a young traveler and having the young renter fee waived, offering you a hassle-free rental experience. Additionally, your travel budget will stretch further with special discounts, allowing you to feel better about any extra souvenirs on your journey. When you plan ahead with AAA and Hertz you’ll experience tailored conveniences that will ensure every aspect of your trip is smoother, more affordable and ultimately, more enjoyable.
Hertz Gold Plus Rewards
Hertz has elevated the car rental process. By joining Gold Plus Rewards, you can receive one free day in addition to a seamless car rental experience. As a member, breeze past the counter and go straight to your car. On return, simply drop and go with Hertz e-return. If you rent from a nearby location, Hertz will deliver the car to you and collect it when you are finished.
Here are a few other advantages:
- Your name will flash across the Hertz Gold board as you bypass the counter and get your car — all while accumulating points toward free rental days.
- At select locations, you will receive access to exclusive vehicles based on loyalty tier status.
- The more often you rent, the more points you earn and the sooner you'll reach the next loyalty tier. For every dollar spent on car rentals, Hertz Gold members earn one point.
That's a win-win and convenient, too. This collaboration, blending AAA's expertise with Hertz's seamless car rental service, is becoming more about just redefining journeys. It’s crafting unforgettable memories with every mile.
