Have Avis President’s Club Status? Match To Hertz President’s Circle And National Executive Elite!

As I described in the post about the awesome United Club card benefits, one of the benefits is Avis President’s Club status, which guarantees rental car availability even if the location is sold out, and offers a complimentary two car-class upgrade from intermediate or higher (typically you will receive a premium or luxury car when paying for just an intermediate).

Having Avis status also allows you to pickup cars directly at the terminal in Tel Aviv instead of having to be shuttled to the far off-site car rental facility!

To get President’s Club status once you already have the United Club card just fill out this form or call or 757-687-2008. They will verify that you are a primary cardholder and upgrade your status.

Don’t rent from Avis? You can match the status to equivalent elite status levels with Hertz and National.

Just follow the instructions in those links and you’ll have Hertz President’s Circle and National Executive Elite status in no time!

    The only benefits that additional users can get is 2 free bags by showing the card the a checkin agent and of course the 50% bonus miles on all purchases (1.5 miles per dollar).

    Hi, if my friend opens the united club card, can I take advantage of the avis status instead of him? Or is it only good for the actual card holder?

    A good question. I matched to both of them a while ago and still have them, not sure about their expiration date or if they have one.

    @Reb Moshe:
    Yes.

    @Anonymous:
    That’s why you’re supposed to apply with a new mileage number and merge them after.

    @DD FAN:
    Personally I have the Citi Hilton card as I want to hold onto it as it has no annual fee and it makes awards much cheaper and AMEX has too many other good offers to get.

    I don’t use the card as Hilton points are worth much less than other points/miles.

    Average points for a free night in what kind of hotel? There’s a massive range.

    @Moe:

    @joe ruby:
    You get 10K miles for spending $25K in a calendar year on the United Explorer card. It’s not for every 25K, just the first 25K in a single calendar year.

    The United Club card gets 50% more base miles, so you will earn 1.5 miles per dollar or 37,500 miles for every $25K you spend with no limits on the 50% bonus miles. But there are no 10K bonuses on top of that.

    Hi Dan:
    Like all those who subscribe to your blog, I am grateful for all the valuable information that you provide.
    I presently have a United Explored Card and I did receive the 50K bonus miles plus an additional 5K miles for adding my husband to my account. I am interested in the United Club card IF I could receive the additional bonus miles added to my present United account. Would I need to apply for another United Explorer Card in order to receive this? Would I then be able to add the reward miles to my present mileage account or would I need to create a different mileage account? Can two different accounts for the same person be merged without any charge? Hope that I am clear on all my questions.

    Thanks for the information, Dan. I’m just a National “executive” status, but I used the information in the blog to request Hertz Gold “Five Star.”

    I sent Hertz and email and was upgraded in less than ONE day. Not a whole lot, but hey – it’s a freebie!

    Never would have thought of that without reading your blog. I usually tune in at least once per day.

    The Club card doesn’t give any miles, it gives a club membership and a variety of other benefits and and you can get the first year free after SM.

    But you can get it together with the Explorer card which comes with 55K+$50 after SM.

    We have all of the top cards including Amex Plat and United Presidential Plus(orig Continental) plus capital one. Will any of these get us anything when using them o n rental cars in Europe/Italy?

    FYI This benefit is going away- don’t sign up for the card expecting to get Presidents Club benefits.

    From Avis registration site:

    An important change in the Avis benefits available to you through your United MileagePlus® Club Card is on its way. Beginning January 28th, the benefit available to United Club cardholders will change from Avis President’s Club to Avis First®. Existing Avis President’s Club members will be changed to Avis First on April 1st, 2013.
