Hertz Gold Plus elite status requirements were reduced for 2021 (but only barely), and those reductions are now extended through 2022. Hertz points will start expiring again after 18 months, but there are other nice Hertz elite status promotions to take advantage of. Here's what Hertz Gold Plus members need to know about these changes.
2021-2022 Hertz Gold Plus Elite Status Requirements
Back in 2021, Hertz reduced Gold Plus elite status requirements. That said, the reduction was fairly underwhelming:
- Five Star status: 10 rentals (instead of 12) or $2,000 in spending (instead of $2,400)
- President's Circle status: 15 rentals (instead of 20) or $3,000 in spending (instead of $4,000)
If you are planning to make some trips this year, it will be easier to move up the tiers and take advantage of Hertz elite status benefits.
Hertz Elite Status Promotions
For those who attainted Hertz Elite status in 2021 with the reduced qualifications, you will be able to keep your status until February 28, 2023.
Don't forget, you can even get Hertz Gold Plus Rewards elite status for free via credit cards.
Hertz Extends Points Expiry
At the beginning of the pandemic in 2020, Hertz sent out an email allowing members to extend their points expiration by 3 months. Then, Hertz extended expiration until January 2021 and again extended even further to December 31, 2021.
That deadline has come and gone. Hertz points once again expire after 18 months of inactivity. So, make sure you rent cars, take advantage of promotions, and follow our advice to keep your points from expiring.
It's a bummer that Hertz points will expire again after 18 months, but extending the reduced status requirements and other elite status promotions are good to take advantage of if you're a Hertz member or looking to become one.
