Don’t Leave Southwest Points on the Table When You Rent a Car!

Lyn blogs about Southwest Airlines at  And  she offers her free “Step-by-Step Guide to Earning the Southwest Companion Pass” to help you quickly and easily earn the amazing Southwest Companion Pass, which lets 1 person fly nearly free with you for up to 2 years.  

So I’ve asked her to share some tips on how to earn Southwest points when you rent a car.

Lyn:   Renting a car is a common activity for travelers who want an independent mode of transportation at their destination.  

Whether you’ll be sight-seeing around a US National Park, driving along the Pacific Coast highway, or just want the freedom to stop at the grocery and explore a destination on your own time, car rentals can come in quite handy.

Did you know it’s quite easy to earn Southwest points every time you rent a car?  But NOT all the points you earn will qualify for the Southwest Companion Pass.

3 Tips for Primary Insurance Coverage With Car Rentals Over 31 Days

Million Mile Secrets reader, Ana, commented:

What’s your recommendation for primary auto rental insurance if I pay using the Chase Sapphire Preferred or Chase Sapphire Reserve card and the rental period is longer than 31 days?

The Sapphire Preferred and Sapphire Reserve cards are great choices to pay for car rentals.  Because you get primary insurance coverage for collisions and damage.

But with these 2 cards, the coverage only applies to rentals of 31 consecutive days or less in the US and most foreign countries.

To get around the time limit, I’d recommend returning your car and renting another one.  This way, you’ll restart the clock for insurance coverage.

Having Primary Auto Rental Insurance With the Sapphire Preferred and Sapphire Reserve Is a Great Perk.  But It Only Works on Rentals of 31 Days or Less

I’ll share tips for getting coverage on long car rentals!
