One rental short of President's Circle

I've been PC or 5 star for the last 10+ years...missed PC by one this year...anyone ever have any luck calling up and begging to get moved up a tier?

If your profile is correct, then you simply need to link your UA Platinum with Hertz:

https://www.hertzstatus.mileageplus.com/

You will be back as a PC without asking.

You can always try. The worst Hertz can do is refuse you. If you succeed, we will have a reference for the future. I know National is quite accommodating. You can also try status match if you have status with National or Avis or such.

Also, check threads in National's forum. There is a free link which is working for most people & they are getting free EE status for 1 year. You can do that first & then use it to match status for Hertz.

I'm not sure it has ever made a noticeable difference to me.

Well...you are still a Platinum for days. Why not try it and see if Hertz will downgrade you first?
