Hello
What would be expected for E6 at SFO?
I booked E6 ICAH for 8days, would be good to have a Fusion Hybrid.
Will there be any other choices in slots for a gold member?
I am going to have a road trip for about 1500 miles, so fuel economy is an advantage.

Picked up Friday night and PC was a sea of Chrysler 300s. I had honestly never seen so many.

There were a few other nondescript sedans and an Infiniti Q50 (which I took) in the selection.

The Nissan GTR in the dream collection area was super tempting...

PC aisle had a Jag XF amongst a sea of mediocrity. Took it and loved it.

Came after a Silvercar rental, so went through a quick comb-through. Only visited PC though, nothing truely interesting in other locations, though I believe 5 star had a Jetta, which is always nice.

2x 740i
718 Boxster
718 Cayman
CLA 45
Nissan GTR

PC: (see photos)



Also saw a MB A220. Cool to see new stock coming in.

Hz is squeezing every last mile/cent out of those 2018 Maximas. Alamo had brand new SL Maximas back in January.

Group O4 / WCAR “740i / CT6 or similar” what to expect..?

I’ve rented a group O4 (WCAR) “740i / CT6 or similar”. Anybody who knows which models are currently in that part of the Hertz SFO fleet? Am curious to know what I would be most likely to get.

Thanks,
John

Thanks - hoping that’s the case at SFO as well!

Lots of "usual suspects" Sunday around 11pm. Bunch of Tauruses, 300s and Chargers in PC along with a Grand Cherokee, Dodge Ram SLT, Equinox, Traverse, and a Jetta.

5* had some new model Santa Fes and other FCAR/ICAR types.

I have prestige collection K4 JGDR reserved - hoping to snatch a range rover velar or Jaguar F-Pace... according to new fleet these are the two vehicles under K4 group... if they do not have them, I would gladly take BMW 740i lol

This was last Tuesday. Didn't even really look in 5 Star, PC had a ton of 300s and Chargers, some kind of Nissan sedan (Maxima or Altima), a handful of Cadillac ATS and XTS, and one Jaguar XE in the corner, which I snagged. Not bad for $120/wk.

Hey how do you get the 120/week rate? Does that price include tax and fees? Thanks!

It was week of July 4th (no business/consultant traveler traffic), so Hertz lowers the rates. Typically, it is much more expensive at SFO.

used the Amex Plat CDP and found a discount promo code searching online. $120/wk was the base rate - all in was $179 after taxes and fees. Still a great deal for 7 days in a $50k car.
