Mod note - As of 7/25/2018: We've had quite a few "Hey, come use this CDP. It's great" type of posts. When the CDP doesn't give a good discount, but is only posted to try to get renters to use the CDP of someone so the poster can earn perks from their Hertz Corporate account. From here out, please put the company/trade group/etc that's associated with the CDP or we'll delete the post to keep it on-topic here

NOTE: CDPs provided because Hertz or entity publicly links to them (source links provided next to each CDP). DO NOT list corporate codes or list a CDP without public source link

If someone gives you an employer CDP, many of them do include insurance for their employees on business.

You can bet that if you use it improperly and have the need to make a claim, that company is not going to pay for it if you're not an employee or have permission to use it.

I booked a future rental with CDP 205206 and it worked. So today i decided to check in and the price skyrocketed way up so i checked and when you use CDP 205206 now it says DO NOT USE.

I called Hertz and told them that this worked when i put my reservation in so they said print out the email with the price and bring it there and they will honor it. Like i really believe that.

Anyway does this mean they stopped with that cdp?

It sounds like you may have been confused. There is a Hertz valid promo that is 205206 which you can refer to here which gives 10% off. We suspect you mistakenly put a promo (coupon) code in the CDP box and that's how you ended up with a restricted CDP. We would not advise using it as you will likely pay more at the rental counter.

Exact same thing happened to me on that number. I never called Hertz though, just moved on. Thankfully I checked too. Mine was a small non Hertz owned station so I though it might have been them where they never saw it used before, or threw up how cheap it was.

Yup i have another reservation at a different provider for about the same price but this one went from 604.41 for 10 days to 2100 which i am not going to pay. I will do as Hertz said go down there and show them my email with 604.41 and ask yes or no. The problem i have is the mini van is sold out in both locations now so the one i have reserved for the 27th of DEC for 10 days i can't edit it since besides mine its sold out.

So i guess i will go there to the Hertz and ask them but i will not pay 2100 for a mini van for 10 days the main problem i have is everywhere now is sold out of mini vans for those dates and i can't put new codes in cause it makes me select my car again and i can't cause no mini vans are available.

It is a CDP but i will ask them like Hertz on the phone said but if not i will go to another place i have. Big difference from 604.41 to 2100.00 for a 10 day mini van rental. Sadly i can't edit because that is sold out now even for dec 27th so i can't use different codes on it now.

CDP 205206

It is a CDP code and is for ASEA Hagglunds HK LTD and it worked to make a 2000 mini van rental for 10 days down to 604.41 . Which i should have checked in right away or maybe best i did not but when i did check in i got that DO NOT USE. Hertz phone call the guy said take the email to Hertz and they will honor it which to me is BS of him just telling me that to get me off the phone. as he said he could not see that email from a month ago only the check in one of 2100. I am not paying 2100 for a mini van for 10 days that is insane no matter what time of the year it is. And since they have no more mini vans only ones that say call for prices
i will most likely tell them to jump in a lake then to pay 2100.

Just joined this thread. Very informative especially when about using unauthorised CDPs.
I made a booking with the IBM Personal Rental code which offered me a great rate but I might need to forget it and move on.

If I were Hertz or one of their contract holders, I would submit a list of CDP users every so often so that the contract holder (or Hertz) could verify that the users were authorized / employees. I imagine that the contract holder has a financial interest in ensuring that their CDP codes are being utilized properly and may even want Hertz to assist.

After being flagged as not authorized after X rentals, Hertz may flag an account for verification upon the next rental with a CDP.

If you used a CDP, left the rental lot and received a contract for the rate originally quoted. Can Hertz arbitrarily change your rate at return.. and not mention anything to you. For example most receipts are electronic so they wouldnít raise the issue of the changed rate upon return?

If you're an employee of ASEA Hagglunds HK LTD, you should be able to escalate via your company's Hertz rep and get them to honor the rate. If you're not an employee and are just trying to use some random CDP you found which lopped the price by 70%, we're not sure you have much of a leg to stand on. Hertz clearly disabled that CDP so expecting them to honor the originally booked rate which you were never entitled to use is rather foolhardy and it probably won't end well.

Kindly answer post 229, itís a different scenario once you receive the rate and you left the gate with a contract with the original quoted price can Hertz arbitrarily change the rate at return

Well, typically once you sign a rental contract it is a legally binding document for both parties. Hertz should not " arbitrarily change your rate" subsequent to the contract being signed. That said, it may depend on why they changed the rate. For example, if they could prove that you acted in bad faith and used a discount code you were not authorized to use, then they might have grounds to alter the rate. It's difficulty for us to comment on a particular situation without knowing specifics but here is general language written into Hertz's rental contract (emphasis ours):

2. Reservations not made in good faith, including but not limited to multiple reservations for a single rental transaction, reservations made for a rental to a person known not to meet the relevant rental qualifications and requirements, reservations made without the intention of actually entering into the associated rental transactions, reservations involving fraud or deceptive conduct and reservations effected through unauthorized use of Hertzís systems and facilities, are prohibited, and people making them will be liable to Hertz and its licensees for any consequent loss and expense, to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Now, the above is rather general, but if you're asking whether Hertz can legally change your rate post-contract (meaning after you leave the location with your vehicle) if they determine that you acted in bad faith and used a CDP which you were not entitled to use, then the answer is....maybe. It's probably not something we'd want to test, and if it happened, we'd advise speaking with a manager at rental return to get the charges adjusted to match the originally contracted rate. If they refused, then you might be able to take them to small claims court or have grounds for a credit card chargeback (but this could lead to being put on the DNR list), but again, there are the "fraud" and "deceptive conduct" angles to worry about, so it's not a clear cut thing.

If we're jumping to conclusions and this is not about using a CDP that you're not authorized for, then they certainly should adjust the rate at rental return barring some sort of legitimate reason for a rate adjustment, such as you being quoted a monthly rate originally, but you returned early such that the rental length was now under 28 days and the rental reverted to a weekly rate.

Bottom line, it's complicated, and it depends.

Just a data point for those who have raised the question....

I have used a variety of CDP's that I am not explicitly "entitled to" by virtue of membership or some other means, but said CDP's are quite viewable to the public via this forum or other travel blogs with a cursory google search..... and never once have I been questioned on the membership or company ID. This is on maybe 40 rentals over the last 3 years?
Granted, majority of my rentals are at a local (but corporate) non-airport site, or major US airports with UC/PC. So my visits don't usually require much face to face time w/ any agent.

I do so with the full knowledge that I may be spot checked and have to make alternate arrangements for a reservation or pay up to a different rate.
It is a risk-vs-reward calculation, like so many other choices we make in the travel/points/miles world. I am comfortable with the result of my personal calculation on the matter.

But, using your critical thinking noggin for a moment.... if a higher loyalty level hertz customer makes a reservation, I would wager that they are either using UC and head right to a car and then gate.... or their interaction with an agent is a drivers license check and ask if the credit card on file would be fine, and they you get the keys. The agent is not likely to spend time looking at other items, trying to upsell, etc. - it is an in and out deal. Unlike when a non-loyalty customer walks in, and its the whole song and dance with insurance coverage, gas coverage, etc. - a lot more time spent talking to an agent.

As always, YMMV, but that is my experience with this CDP topic.

THANKS of any thoughts!!
