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!
