Chances of PC upgrade?

Hi all, Iím Presidents Club by virtue of my World Elite MasterCard, havenít rented in the US since early 2020 due to the plague.

Just wondering on the chance of the stated airport upgrade? Itís a one way from SAF-FLG. Iíve booked Intermediate SUV, which Iím usually happy with as long as itís not a Dodge Journey (again), is the one way likely to limit my chances? Could ideally do with 4WD which I find is more likely with next level up Group W.

Typically, upgrades only apply to cars and not SUVs or other types of vehicles. If you book an intermediate or higher car, you'll be eligible for a double upgrade based on availability with a maximum upgrade to a premium car.

All of that said, that's what you're technically eligible for based on the published program rules. Many folks over the years have been upgraded to nicer vehicles. Of course, many others have gotten meh upgrades or gotten stiffed completely.

It really depends on how you hit it, the staff member who takes care of you, the location, what vehicles they have available when you arrive, and the position of the sun and the moon. In short, YMMW (significantly).

Being nice is always a good strategy.
