You can transfer Hertz Gold points to spouse!

Maybe this is not new but first time I have seen it.


Who can I transfer points to?

Points can be transferred to a spouse or domestic partner that is a #1/Gold member.

What if they are not a #1/Gold member?

The spouse/domestic partner should sign up for a fee-waived Gold membership via hertz.com. Once completed, you must wait 48 hours before calling the Awards Desk to transfer points. Transferring of points cannot be done without waiting the 48 hours.

How do I transfer the points?

You would call the #1 Gold Plus Rewards Desk (1-888-999-4900) during the hours of 0600-2100 CST Monday through Friday and ask for a transfer of points.

When will the points show up in the spouse/domestic partner's account?

If both memberships are at least 72 hours old, the transferred points are viewable on Hertz.com within 24 hours of transfer. However, a Sales Specialist is able to see the transfer of points that same day and will be able to apply the points to a future reservation. The Awards Desk will transfer you to the Sales area to book the reservation.

How many points can be transferred?

There is no limit to the number of times points are transferred or the amount of points being transferred as long as the points are available in the members account.

This is a great tip. I didn't know it. Pooled points will make award redemption easier in our family.

And if your spouse or domestic partner isn't signed up, right now you can sign them up for free.

That link will work IF you are logged into Hertz.com. Log in first, then click that link. Current expiration for this promo is April 30, 2012. This is noted in the info in the first post, so that makes me think that transferring points is new.

Cool... thank you. With the excellent E-rewards redemption value, this will make getting enough points for a rental much, much easier

Hertz told me it would take 24-48 hours, but it ended up taking about an hour.

bhunt, thank you very much for your post. I just moved my points into my husband's account. I could see the points in his account as soon as I refreshed it. Consolidated points means better award options.

Not unless your friend is your spouse.

How do they know if it is your spouse?

Anyone have a clue as to how they determine if the transferee is your say 'domestic partner'? They cannot use last name as a criteria?
