Here is your chance to gift Hertz elite status to someone else! If you have Hertz Five Star or President’s Circle status, you can let someone else have it also for a whole year!

Car rental elite status can be incredibly easy to come by, depending on the program, and offer some meaningful benefits for various situations. Now, if you have Hertz elite status, you can gift it to someone else and let them enjoy those benefits as well!

This offer is for Hertz Five Star and President’s Circle members and it allows them to gift the same status level to a friend or family member. That means that they can enjoy the same elite benefits you get from Hertz now – for a whole year.

I have enjoyed Hertz President’s Circle status as it has helped me to get some better upgrades at larger locations and to make sure that I always have a car. That last part used to be a given but during the Covid season, it wasn’t uncommon for people to find that the rental agencies had no car for them, even with a reservation. But, as a Hertz President’s Circle member, I never had to be afraid of that because they always made sure there was a car for me.

Here is the list of President’s Circle benefits that (if you have the status) your friend or family member will get to enjoy as well:

  • Skip the counter and go straight to your car
  • Earn 50% more points toward free days and upgrades
  • Choose from the widest selection of cars
  • Enjoy guaranteed car-class upgrades
  • Add an additional driver for free
  • Drop the keys and go at rental return

While I still personally get more out of my National Executive Elite status than my Hertz President’s Circle status, it has been helpful a number of times. Plus, this is a free offer to give it to someone else for a year also so, why not? 🙂

  • Link appears broken. It does sound like Hertz Presidents Circle members via Venture X can also gift the status to others.
