5* Free Upgrade Up to Full Size Only?

Was going to rent a full size carat HLE in Daly City and asked them if they had any premium cars I could get upgraded to. They told me upgrades are only up to full size for the complimentary 5* upgrade.

Is this the official Hertz policy, since I saw many post of F to G classes?

Thanks!

It's not published anywhere.

An HLE manager told me it was "policy," but them upgraded me to G, so I didn't question her further.

http://www.hertz.com/rentacar/emembe...umGoldbenefits clearly states that the "Maximum upgrade is to a Premium class vehicle."

Thanks for the help, I called in Hertz and the customer rep said it was A-F, but since the website is different then I'll just carry that around as proof.

I also went to another Hertz and they gave me a 2013 ford explorer.
