Retroactive mileage credit:

There have been many data points of car reservations made through United.com not properly crediting to the member's MP account. To obtain retroactive credit follow the link on the Hertz.com homepage under Customer Support named "Frequent Traveler Credit". Input your appropriate account and reservation details and you'll receive a response back from Hertz within 3-5 business days. Allow at least seven days after rental return before requesting the credit. This works for obtaining both the base mile credit and whatever bonus your status level entitles you to, e.g. GS/1K bonus, etc.

Good to know it's still somewhat possible to force a reasonable rate with Hertz. Not sure how anyone would be Booking direct with them at the prices their website shows. I just finished a $700 rental for a week with Avis. Hertz wanted $2500.

You won't get the UA bonus points with them (which are, at the most, worth $55-), but you still get the President's Circle (complimentary for Plat and 1K) upgrades, ...
but i assume base UA miles should post even with autoslash (which i guess is just a dedicated CDP).. in the past 500+750 did not require UA CDP and posted promptly on my corporate rate

Correct. There are fields available when you complete your AutoSlash bookings to add your CDP # or Hertz #.

AutoSlash doesn't have their own discounts, you actually fill-out a profile of discounts that you are qualified for e.g. Sam's Club/Costco/Amex Plat/Visa Infinite/USAA, etc. and they just find you the best discount, agnostic of company. For me, it usually works out to be Hertz.

Anyone know if the extra 1,500 bonus mile offer for two-plus days is gone? I am getting emails for upcoming trips to get a total of 2,500 miles for booking through UA/rentalcars.com but there is no mention of the extra bonus on the landing page and when I log in (as gold) it just says I will earn only 1,000. So I'm not going to book via this channel unless I know for sure. Otherwise, it's typically cheaper with AAA rates.

It's been gone for some time. Given how crazy the car market (including rentals) is at the moment, they don't really need to provide any additional incentives to rent. Perhaps part of Hertz's post-bankruptcy plan was curtailing paying UA for miles to hand out like candy.

Only problem was they added a surcharge for those miles they graciously awarded you with the booking.

I literally just received this email today. I'm aware the 1,500 bonus went away a while ago but this suggests it came back. Or is the email marketing that bad?

Side question: are you actually getting reasonable rates for Hertz compared to other companies? They have been obscene the few trips I considered them....like double of triple Avis cost. Curious to know if they have settled down. I haven't looked in 5 months.

No. Hertz is still obscene. We have switched to Avis or others. Chasing a measly 1250 miles for double what another rental company is offering for the same car isn't remotely worth it.

Ill confirm that I got 1,250 miles for a four day Hertz rental last week. Posted first as 500 miles but then got a 750 mile bonus a couple days later.

Booked with the AAA CDP. Had booked a C Car; got upgraded to a small SUV with Presidents Circle. This was at Kona, Hawaii.

Crazy rates. I rented at CDG last Sunday and returned yesterday: five days. I did drive about 600 km over the 250 km/day limit. The total price was just over 2,000 Euros or 400 Euros per day.

I check, and occasionally Hertz is competitive. They were the cheapest for example for a trip I'd originally booked to MSN next weekend (I ended up cancelling that and opting to go to Vermont instead when I realized it was Penn St. vs. Wisconsin and downtown would be slammed). But then at BTV, National blew them away; they were literally 1/6th the rate for Hertz, and I usually get far better cars from National (as a middling Emerald Exec via Amex Plat, vs. the Hertz President's Circle via UA). I noticed Hertz is totally gone at a few airports I travel to also, leaving only Avis and Enterprise/National in those cases.

For that matter, the UA CDP code for Hertz is rarely the cheapest of those I have legit access to; sometimes it is, sure, and I usually check, but it's rare. My employer leisure rate code is normally 1/2 what the UA CDP is (even more odd is when I check the old, pre-merger employer CDP, which still exists 19 years after the acquisition of that company by my current employer, and often is a very good rate).

With the Hertz United partnership ending, will the United mileage earning continue until October next year or is it already over?

So this thread can stay focus earning UA mileage bonuses for booking with Hertz, those curious about the Hertz / UA relationship, please see Extent of future relationship between United and Hertz changing?
