How to Get Rental Car Elite Status for Free
One of the feel-good milestones of travel is achieving elite status within a loyalty program. What feels even better? Getting elite status for free thanks to holding the right credit card, through your existing elite status, or by status matching from another program. Here’s are all the shortcuts to rental car elite status that we can find.
Avis One-Day Rental for $30 + Discounted Presidents Club Membership
Avis is offering a one-day rental for $30 and a paid upgrade to President’s Club (their top-tier elite status) for $750 with the latest Daily Getaways promotion. The $30 one-day rental coupons will likely sell out soon after the deal goes live at 1 p.m. ET. on Thursday, May 16th, so don’t wait if you want to grab this deal.
Airport to City Rentals with Avis from $9.99
Avis has introduced a new one-way car rental promo from airports to cities across the US for as little as $9.99 per rental. With this promotion, you can pick up a car from the airport and drop it off downtown, or pick it up downtown and drop it off at the airport. Although this does have some limitations, including restrictions on travel days and locations, if the stars align, you could save a significant amount of money with a rental versus Uber/Lyft or a Taxi. This promotion is clearly targeted at the leisure/weekend traveler, and we like it!
