Hertz has collaborated with Starwood Preferred Guest (SPG) and Marriott Rewards (MR) to give elite members a status upgrade to complimentary Gold Plus status.
SPG Platinum members with ambassador service and Marriott Rewards Platinum Premier Elite members will get President’s Circle status and will be able to retain it as long as they maintain their status tiers with the hotel loyalty programs. Platinum Tier members of both programs will get the Five Star tier.
The upgraded Gold Plus status will reflect within five days from the time member match their Gold Plus Rewards Number with either SPG or MR elite status. Here is the link to avail your match.
Gold Plus Five Star benefits
Five Star is usually earned with ten car rentals annually and comes with all the Hertz Gold benefits plus the following:
- One car level upgrade
- 10% bonus on Hertz Rewards points
- Bonus of 600 points after every 15 qualifying rentals
- Limited blackout dates
Gold Plus President’s Circle benefits
The President’s Circle status is usually obtained with 40 rentals annually and comes with benefits such as:
- Guaranteed one car level upgrade
- Guaranteed car availability
- 25% bonus earning on Hertz Rewards points
- Bonus earning of 600 points after every 15 qualifying rentals
To earn Starpoints, SPG members must add their SPG account number to their car rental reservations or book at spg.com/hertz. They can also continue to earn Gold Rewards if they prefer.
If you have Platinum status with either of the programs, then you should definitely look at matching the status with Hertz. Too bad, however, that Five Star and President’s Circle benefits are available only at participating locations in the US, Canada and Europe.
