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

Hertz discounts seem to have gotten more complicated. We are trying to book cars for several trips to Austin TX later this summer. Discount options include Southwest, AAA, over 50 drivers (CDP 2007815) and the 203688 PC for 15% discount. Any suggestions on how to combine these (if any combine) and when to book (weeks out versus the week of the rental)?

We are also Hertz Gold and wonder whether any cookies in browser alerts to our previous Austin checks (and perhaps predisposes rates to be higher). Is the Hertz booking engine sufficiently sophisticated to make those determinations.

Finally, is it the consensus that booking as guest versus as member achieves any benefit either way?

Not sure they've gotten any more complicated. It's always been tedious to check all the discounts you're qualified for, plus all the matching coupon codes that go with them. Then again, that's exactly what AutoSlash was designed to help with.

1. Book as early as possible (i.e. as soon as your dates are finalized).
2. Don't prepay.
3. Keep checking the rates, or use AutoSlash to keep checking rates for you to constantly look for a better deal.

There are lots of conspiracy theories out there. The short answer is no--you will not receive a higher rate because of cookies despite what some folks will tell you. That said, the rental car booking systems are screwed up in all sorts of different ways. At one point or another, someone may run into some weird glitch that is resolved by clearing cookies or using a different browser. Trust us when we say it is simply a glitch and not some plot raise rates after you've initially looked at them or something.

Generally it shouldn't make a difference, but we've seem some weird stuff with Avis/Budget in this regard. Typically with Hertz though you should get the same rates whether you are logged in or not.

Thanks for the information. We do book early (no prepay) and then monitor and rebook as opportunities arise. I am in revenue management in another industry, so understand the process if not the specific Hertz strategy. Sometimes we rebook on a fresh reservation and then cancel the original, and other times we "change" the existing reservation, essentially rebooking with same res number but lower rates. With both of these processes, we have found that AUS sometimes pulls the canceled reservation or pulls the "old" rate from the change reservation. We carry computer print outs and thus far have been able to get it straightened out OK, but it does take extra time and some diligence in reviewing paperwork at the time of rental.

PC192021 seems to expire 12/31/2017

It seems that the PC code 192021 (one free day), worked for years, expire at the end of this year.

I just used CDP 1939770 or 2108715 which is saving me $30 on a one week rental in Majorca compared to the Amex Platinum CDP which is stored in my account.

That's probably because those CDPs are for employees of FORTUNE COOKIE CREATIONS and MUTUAL TRUST LIFE respectively. If you sell life insurance or make fortune cookies for a living, then you're likely good-to-go. If not, then you probably should:

a) Look for a good broker
b) Not get your car rental discount codes from a fortune cookie

Interesting observation:

When I use AAA I am able to rent a car for 31 days and have this count as a 1 month rental.

However, when I use USAA or Amex Plat the rental period identifies 30 days as a monthly rental and if entered for 31 days, charges 1 extra day.

I don't recall this being the case in other states but it is happening in Florida.

I wouldn't chance using a CDP you are not entitled to especially if you are underage. If you get in an accident and are found to have used an CDP you are not entitled to, it may void any insurance you have.

If you use a PC code for "$x per day off", and you only need the vehicle for 6 days, add the half hour to make it a 7 day rental. In my experience, I am usually charged the weekly rate anyway, but the coupon is deducted per day, so making it officially 7 days saves a few bucks.

The best $-off coupons available right now only take up to $30 off total, so it actually doesn't matter. Theoretically though if you could find a $-off coupon that takes up to $35 off on a per day basis, you'd have to rent for like 6 days and 3 hours since anything short of that you're charged the hourly rate. If OTOH, it was $35 off a weekly rental, then anything 5 days or over would qualify.

Hmm. I just booked a week in New Orleans (downtown) using PC 203691 (from an AAA ad). Six days got me $30 off, but six days and a couple hours got me $35 off. The base price was unchanged so that the total amount was less. Whatever the reason.

Ah yes, you're right. I'd forgotten about that one.
