Car rental promos are not normally as good as the airline and hotel promos. But, there is one major exception to that and it is National’s One Two Free. This promotion comes out each summer and is a great way to rack up free days that can be used at tremendous value!
National’s One Two Free Promo for Free Rental Days
National runs this promo every summer/fall and it can be incredibly lucrative if you know where you will redeem the free days. I have redeemed these free days many times to save over thousands of dollars – including a one-way that was a huge savings!
National One, Two, Free Promo Details:
- Members may earn 300 Points for each Qualifying Rental made after the date on which the Member registered and which occurs during the period beginning August 22, 2019, through February 29, 2020
- One Free Rental Day will be awarded each time a Member earns 600 points in the ONE TWO FREE® promotion (the “Promotion”).
- Earned Free Rental Day coupons may be redeemed to cover base rate (Time and Mileage) only for a rental day but does not apply to taxes, fees, surcharges, refueling, drop-off, delivery, youthful driver, additional driver, pick-up, or one-way charges or any optional product or service, which are the responsibility of the renter.
- Earned points and Free Rental Day coupons will expire at 11:59 p.m. on June 15, 2020 CDT
