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

If he works for Hertz, why does his CDP say "CLIVE CHRISTIAN FURNITURE LTD" ?

Using corp CDP makes smaller cars available

I'll be renting a car for two days at Sacramento airport, landing time is about 48 hours from now. I'm "Gold Plus Five Star" and I usually use my Amex Platinum CDP because it seems to always give the best rate I can find. Yesterday when I went to reserve a car, it showed that all cars up to full size were unavailable, and what was available (Premium, SUVs etc) was very expensive - over $100/day. This morning I checked again, same situation. I tried some other CDP's and when I entered IBM's CDP (40000) suddenly Compact/Int/Std/Full sizes are all available at very reasonable rates.

I understand that using a corporate code when I'm not really an employee is risky. In this case it'll probably work to collect the car since I'm picking up at an airport and I won't have to go to the counter - but I could be in a bad spot if I get into an accident.

Is there any way around this? If the IBM code "unlocks" all the smaller cars, they must actually be physically available, so is there any other code (that I can more legitimately use) likely to make them available too?

Book with the IBM code and ask them to switch it at the counter to the Amex Platinum CDP.

As you probably surmised, one benefits of the IBM CDP is guaranteed availability even when they are sold out. Also, keep in mind that the IBM contract has very reasonable fixed rates, so it's hard to predict what the Amex Platinum CDP will yield, but you can always ask before they switch it.

Thanks for the reply! Is it clear that they won't say at the counter "No, sorry, that car is reserved for IBM so we can't switch the CDP ... oh and while you're here, show us your IBM credentials or we won't rent you a car at all"?

I'm guessing I'm being paranoid, but...

I certainly can't guarantee it, but I'd be surprised if that were to happen. Be creative. I'm sure you can come up with a logical explanation about why you'd need to switch the CDP. People change jobs all the time.

(A) Thanks again for the reply

(B) Here's another angle ... let me know your (or anyone's) thoughts: I can reserve a Compact car using my Amex CDP for 11:30PM Sunday night (the night before I actually arrive), for 48 hours, at a low price. Is there anything likely to go wrong with reserving that car (with "Pay Later") and then on Sunday night calling and saying that I've delayed my trip and that I would like to pick the car up on Monday at 2:00PM, and still have it for 48 hours?

You can certainly try but that's stretching the reservation hold quite a bit. I don't see any reason though why you can't make that reservation with your Hertz Gold account and then make a backup reservation as you suggested above outside your account. You could try to go to the Gold desk first and see if they'll allow you to pick up the original reservation, and if not could you just get on the regular line and try to pick up the other one and do the CDP swap and then have them apply your Gold number at the same time. Lots of ways to do this. You can also try to change your earlier res as the pickup time approaches as sometimes availability opens up. I wouldn't overthink this though. Just pick a plan and go with it.

Uh-huh. Sure. There's zero chance it's your CDP, and, even if it were, you certainly wouldn't be recommending it here because you hope people will use it so you earn free rental days. Zero chance.

Also, a quick check shows that code delivering notably worse rates than, say the AAA or United Mileage Plus CDP.

Then your "friend" misinformed you. The rate doesn't include CDW, per the below quote I pulled.

That is a pretty significant piece of information. The LDW is still worthless (or even worse than worthless), though, since if you are in an accident, and Hertz discovers that you aren't actually an employee of Clive Christian Furniture, they'll void the code, and the included CDW. Since credit card LDW isn't valid if you accept rental car company LDW, then the credit card cover wouldn't apply either.

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.

Best PC, RQ and CDP for Rewards Redemption?

Thoughts on which PCs, RQs and CDPs combine well with free rentals? For instance, I know the AmEx Platinum CDP includes a four-hour grace period. Thanks!
