Thoughts on Car Rental Partners

Just curious, any thoughts on why NW dropped Hertz and Avis, or maybe the other way around Hertz and Avis dropped NW?

I know for a fact that Hertz and Avis were scheduled to add a larger FF fee on car rental to cover the cost of the FF miles (not just the tax) and Beth at Worldperks refused to just pass on the car partners cost to us (Worldperk members) so Worldperks cnaceled the partnerships.

They do look out for us!

Now WP is offering matching EQMs on car rentals through December with the motley second-tier partners it has left (Thrifty, etc.). I will stick with Avis nevertheless, but miles for car rentals don't add up for most people anyway, and I appreciate WP choosing cost controls and program integrity. Go Beth.
