Every year I redeem some of my points for a car rental for vacation. It has been 70,000 points for an 8 day rental certificate with Hertz. I went to redeem for this years vacation and it was different. Now it charges points per day of rental and it will cost me 114,000 points for the same thing I used 70,000 for perviously. That is over 50% more points for a car rental. How is that a benefit.
Hi, rjmoman. I have never tried to redeem points for a rental car so I really can't comment on why the points have gone up; however, it does seem like the cost of rental cars have gone up in the past few years (like most everything else ). We only rent a car 3 or 4 times a year and it always amazes me how expensive they are. It has helped a little to get the Hertz gold reward points rather than Skymiles for our rentals.
