Some of the best discounts you’ll find at Hertz are exclusively for members of the American Automobile Association (AAA), which has a long-running partnership with the car rental company. In fact, the AAA discount at Hertz is often the best available deal on the table.

The AAA is a federation of 32 motor clubs in North America that is perhaps best known for its roadside assistance. However, it also offers its more than 61 million members with discounts on car rentals, gas, restaurants and more.

Hertz and AAA first formed a partnership in 1978 to provide benefits to rental car customers at airports, and today offer some of the best discounts on car rental rates and additional perks. AAA also offers discounts to Thrifty and Dollar customers as well.

Here’s a look at the discounts AAA members will enjoy when renting a car from Hertz.

AAA Member Discounts at Hertz

AAA Discount Codes

One of the biggest advantages of renting from Hertz as an AAA member is that you receive up to 20% off of base rates when renting a car at airport and non-airport locations, no matter whether you are renting by the day, week or month. You can also save 10% on pre-paid rates.

Ask AutoSlash for a Quote on a Cheap Car Rental

When you ask AutoSlash for a quote on a rental car, be sure to include your AAA membership in your profile information so that we can factor it in to your deal.

Special Promotions for AAA members

In addition to discounts offered by AAA, Hertz also runs limited-time promotions to sweeten the deal even more. These promotional coupons often can be used in conjunction with the AAA discount code to make a good deal even better. These promotions are often time-sensitive and can apply to certain types of rentals.

Special Deals for Hertz Gold Plus Rewards Members

Hertz also offers some exclusive deals for members of its loyalty program, Gold Plus Rewards. Before making a reservation with Hertz, be sure to sign up for the rewards program. Enter your AAA membership code so the system will save it for future reservations.

Other Hertz Discounts for AAA Members

Hertz also offers AAA members a 10% discount on international rentals and 10% off of Hertz’ prepaid rates. Just be sure to double-check the rules for cancelling reservations, as usually these rates carry stricter change fees.

Hertz Offers AAA Members Extra Perks

In addition to discounts on base rates, Hertz offers members savings on extras for your rental car that can really add up. You can expect to find the following perks with your AAA membership:

  • Young renter fee for renters ages 20-24 is waived (savings of $29 per day)
  • 10% off the pre-paid fuel option
  • Free child or infant car seat (savings of $13.99 per day)
  • Additional drivers with AAA memberships can drive for free (savings of $13.50 per person per day)
  • Loss of use fee waived provided there is no violation of the terms and conditions of the rental agreement
  • AAA members can also use their Hertz Gold Plus Rewards account to take advantage of even more benefits, like skipping the counter.

How to Find and Apply AAA Discounts for Hertz

To save time searching for the best deal, ask AutoSlash for a quote. We’ll apply your AAA discount (and any other club memberships) and scan all of the available coupons out there to find you the best deal.

Let AutoSlash Track Your Car Rental for Price Drops

Then, be sure to ask AutoSlash to track your reservation. If there’s a price drop or a better deal, we’ll shoot you an alert so you can cancel and rebook at the lower price. That’s the best way to make sure you’re not leaving any money on the table.
