Loyalty Programs

4 of 14

Choose your rental company based on cost, not on your membership
in their loyalty program—especially if you rent infrequently. Loyalty programs
are designed primarily to streamline the pick-up process (skip the check-in
counter, head straight to your car), not to give you a lower price. They’re
great if you’re a frequent business traveler; they’re much less useful if
you’re a less frequent leisure traveler.
