Frequent Flyer Surcharge
The following applies to reservations booked August 30, 2002 forward for rentals picked up October 1, 2002 forward. For rentals in the U.S., Puerto Rico, and Canada when the renter chooses to receive Frequent Flyer miles or credits from the following U.S. airline programs Hertz will assess a Frequent Flyer Surcharge equivalent to $0.50 per day up to a maximum of $2.00 per rental. The amount assessed is collected by Hertz to offset a portion of Hertz’ annual cost of participation in Frequent Flyer programs.
- AirTran Airways
- Alaska Airlines
- Aloha Airlines
- America West Airlines
- Continental Airlines
- Delta Air Lines
- Frontier Airlines
- Midwest Airlines
- Southwest Airlines
- United Airlines
- US Airways
For rentals in the US, Puerto Rico, and Canada when the renter chooses to receive miles in the American Airlines AAdvantage program the Frequent Flyer Surcharge will be calculated based on the Federal Excise Tax expense incurred by Hertz when it purchases miles from American Airlines. Under the Tax Relief Act of 1997, all companies that purchase Frequent Flyer miles from airlines must pay a 7.5% Excise Tax on the cost of those miles (on average, 6 cents per day).
Surcharge is not applicable to mileage/points or credits earned on International Airlines, Hotel programs or other non-airline frequency programs.
Surcharge amounts are shown in U.S. Dollars; equivalent Canadian Surcharge amounts are subject to changes depending on fluctuating exchange rates.
