Today only at 1:00 pm Eastern Time, you can buy an Avis 1-day car rental certificate for $30 and an Avis Chairman’s Club Membership for $1,115 through Daily Getaways.
Through April 24, 2015, a new travel deal will be available every weekday at 1:00 pm Eastern Time. But these deals sell out fast!
Here’s today’s deal.
Deal for April 6, 2015 – $30 Avis Car Rental & Avis Chairman’s Club Membership for $1,115
Link: Daily Getaways Calendar
With today’s deal you can get an Avis 1-day car rental certificate for any car class (up to Premium) for $30, valid in:
- Puerto Rico
- US (excluding the New York metro area)
- US Virgin Islands
You can buy a maximum of 7 certificates and use them on 1 rental. But you still have to pay taxes, surcharges, and other fees. So check the base price of the rental you want to see if it’s worth it!
With these certificates:
- 24 hour advance reservation is required
- Blackout dates apply
- They can’t be used on 1-way rentals
- They have to be used by April 30, 2016
The deal goes live today at 1:00 pm Eastern Time and there are only 700 available!
Is This a Good Deal?
If you have an upcoming Avis rental, this might be a good deal.
For example, you’d pay ~$113 from the Avis website to rent a subcompact car in Fort Lauderdale on June 26, 2015.
If you used a $30 Daily Getaways certificate, you’d only be responsible for taxes and fees (~$23).
So your total cost for the rental would be ~$53 ($30 Daily Getaways certificate + ~$23 in taxes and fees).
In this case, you’d save money booking through Hotwire instead of Avis.
Although you can NOT use the certificate with Hotwire, you’d only pay ~$34 and get a midsize car! But it could be from any major car rental company.
Avis Chairman’s Club Membership for $1,115
If you rent from Avis often, buying an Avis Chairman’s Club Membership for $1,115 valid through April 30, 2016 could be worth it.
That’s because Avis Chairman’s Club membership is normally by invitation only and you get:
- Best car available when you rent an intermediate level vehicle or higher (excludes Cool Cars)
- Car delivery within 25 miles of Avis rental station
- Discounted gas rates
- Guaranteed car without reservations
- Return valet service at large airports
Emily and I only rent cars a few times a year, so buying an Avis Chairman’s Club membership isn’t worth it to us. But it could be worth it to you.
Today at 1:00 pm Eastern Time you can buy Avis 1-day car rental certificates for $30 each, and an Avis Chairman’s Club membership for $1,115 through Daily Getaways.
You can use the certificate at most Avis locations in the US, Canada, Puerto Rico, and US Virgin Islands by booking with Avis (online or phone) by April 30, 2016. But you can NOT use them on discount sites like Hotwire.
Check prices before you buy because you might save more money booking through other sites.
