About Hertz Gold Plus Rewards
Hertz Gold Plus Rewards offers "AnyDay Rewards" with no black-out dates, allowing Members to use their Points at any time. Â Members also have the flexibility to use their Points when it is convenient for them because Gold Plus Rewards Points do not automatically expire. Each time a participant earns or redeems Points, their Points renew for an additional 24 months which means they do not have to worry about Points expiring. Â If participants prefer, they may still earn points in any of the other many partner loyalty programs in which Hertz participates, giving members greater choice and flexibility
Participants can earn Points on all their qualifying rentals by updating their #1 Club or #1 Club Gold profile at http://www.hertz.co.uk or earn on each rental by requesting or selecting to earn Gold Plus Rewards Points when they make their Hertz reservations. Â Points accumulate in the Member's account online and are redeemed online. Â Â
