Hertz Points/Status

I am a President's Club from Hertz as I rent probably 40 times a year.  I probably have close to 30k points in my Hertz account that I cannot seem to spend.  I recently went to Aruba as well as Netherlands and there were no opportunities to redeem points for rentals.

 

I also do not seem to get many upgrades anymore.  I used to occasionally see a luxury car or SUV but now instead or a Full Size (Malibu or Altima) may get an ability on the app to go to a Maxima, Taurus or Impala.

 

Has anyone else had similar issues?  Is it better to switch my earning to Marriott points or airline points?

    Had same problem!  Started using Avis a little over 2 years ago.  Began getting upgrades late in the first year of use.  Now I get them about 60% of the time without asking.  About 80% of the time when asking upon arrival.    

    Points redemption is hit & miss, but better than Hertz in my experience.

      I just can't see the point of car rental loyalty programs, the points accumulate so slowly and redeem for so little, if I can actually redeem them. All my rental program memberships have lapsed along with their worthless points.

       

      I wasn't aware however I could opt to earn hotel points on car rental programs which is what I will definitely do in future. Thanks very much for pointing that option out @boomer
