With Daily Getaways you can purchase discounted travel packages, but you have to be really quick. At 1pm EDT every weekday from now through April 22nd there is a new offering.
The best deals will sell out in seconds, so you need to be waiting on the page at 12:59pm and refreshing the page. Be sure to have a Hertz number handy.
There are 3 Hertz packages that will be available to purchase at 1pm:
1. 5,500 points for $252 (4.58 cents per point)
2. 13,200 points for $428 (3.24 cents per point)
3. 16,500 points for $698 (4.23 cents per point)
-A free week rental is 2,750 points, so package 1 would be enough for 2 weeks of rentals at a cost of $18 per day.
-Package 2 would be enough points for 4 free weeks (11K) and a 4 day rental over a weekend (2.2K). That’s 32 rental days at a cost of $13.38 per day.
Package 2 is also enough for two 4 day weekend rentals of a prestige collection car. That’s 8 days of rentals at a cost of $53.50 per day.
-A free rental week of a prestige collection car is 8,250 points, so package 3 would be enough for 2 weeks of rentals at a cost of $49.85 per day.
Package 3 is also enough for 6 weeks of free rentals. That’s 42 rental days at a cost of $16.62 per day.
There are a few blackout dates for these awards, though you can use double points to rent during a blackout as well.
You’ll need to be waiting on the page wearing out your F5 key to be able to grab one of these as soon as the buy now button appears at 1pm.
And don’t forget to have your Hertz Gold Plus Rewards number handy.
Package #2 will be the hardest to get as it has the lowest cost per point and it has the fewest available packages for sale.
Hertz points don’t expire as long as you have activity every 24 months.
Will you try to buy? Or are these packages too much effort for too little reward? For many locations you may be better off spending the time figuring out the lowest Priceline bid that they would accept for your rental…
