What is the USAA Car Rental Discount?

Some major rental car companies offer special discounts of up to 30% for USAA members, depending on the specific rental car company. In addition to a better price, USAA members often enjoy additional benefits such as unlimited mileage and a break on additional driver fees.

Which Companies Offer USAA Discounts?

Four car rental companies offer discounts for USAA members: Avis, Budget, Enterprise and Hertz. Here’s how they compare.


USAA offers the latest Avis deals through its members-only portal. Avis offers specific, time-limited promotions for USAA members in addition to discounts with a special coupon code. For example, we found a recent USAA offer to save up to 30% on base rates along with a free upgrade.

In addition to discounts, Avis offers several other benefits for USAA members:

Budget also offers the same perks for USAA members as its sister company Avis does:


Enterprise offers comprehensive benefits for USAA members, including discounts of up to 5% according to the USAA website. It also offers several other perks for USAA members, including:


Hertz offers a range of perks for USAA members as well as special discounts. Generally, Hertz will offer a standard discounted rate for USAA members that can usually be combined with special offers. For example, we recently found a coupon for discounts of up to 25% on time and mileage charges.
