If you're looking for a specialty vehicle from Hertz (something from the Prestige/Adrenaline/Green Collections), it is helpful if you can specify the four-letter car size code (i.e. ICAR, MVAR, etc.) shown on the Hertz website for the specific vehicle you're looking for.

Hello - I am getting a weird pricing on Hertz for the following dates.

Pickup Location (airport, city, or ZIP code/postcode): DTW
Dropoff Location (if different) (airport, city, or ZIP code/postcode): ORD
Pickup Date and Time: Wed, 25 Apr, 2018 at 08:30
Return Date and Time: Mon, 30 Apr, 2018 at 16:00
Vehicle Size Preference: ICAR
Home Country (if not USA): Germany
Best Price you've found, Hertz or otherwise: $258 on the Hertz website

I am a President's Circle Member and when I use the CDP that is in my profile the price jumps to $275. Under the section "Included in the rate" I see the same options but I don't understand why the price for the same dates/category is higher. Did anyone have this before?

I might book without any CDP but will the President's Cirle status be confirmed if it is not in the reservation?

look at Hertz.co.uk
Every CDP gives a specific rate for the same service .
using a Amex FB cdp 769269 and PC 192021 on your dates in ORD you' ll rent a full size for 218.63 USD and take any car you like .
I understand that for someone from a socialist country it might be hard to understand but its a free market and " prize " is in the world of car rentals exactly the same as is in the world of advertisement sales

Perfect - thanks a lot for this.
Also are there any ways to waive the additional driver fee? I will be travelling with a coworker. I understand that we need to be using a company CDP in order to waive the AAO fee in that case and the Amex FB CDP won't work?
