Is This a Good Deal? 

If you have an upcoming Avis rental, this might be a good deal.

But you have to book with Avis (online or by phone at 800-331-1212).  So you can NOT use these certificates to book cheap rentals through sites like Hotwire.

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).

A Fort Lauderdale 1-Day Avis Rental Costs ~$113, or ~$53 Using Daily Getaways

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.

You Might Get a Bigger Car and Pay Less on Hotwire Than Booking With Avis!

So you should check prices before buying these certificates, because there are other ways to save money on car rentals like using AutoSlash.

Avis Chairman’s Club Membership for $1,115

Link:   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

And you can use your Avis Chairman’s Club membership to match status and get National Emerald Club Executive Elite benefits.

Avis Frequent Renters Could Benefit From an Avis Chairman’s Club Membership

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.

Bottom Line

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.
