Do you rent cars fairly frequently?  Here’s a way to get complimentary upgrades, bonus points, and more by spending only a couple of minutes of your time.

Get Top-Tier Status With Hertz (and Match It to Other Car Rental Companies!) in Only ~2 Minutes

I’ll show you how to take advantage of this deal.

Free Rental Car Top-Tier Status

Link:   Hertz’s Gold Plus Rewards President’s Circle Status Promotion

To get a free upgrade to Hertz’s top-tier status, click here to register for the deal using the code “501032.”

The webpage is in German, but there are plenty of online tools (like Google Translate) that will translate the page to English. 😉

With Hertz’s President’s Circle status you’ll get perks like:

  • Confirmed vehicle availability with a minimum 48 hour advance reservation
  • Confirmed one-class upgrade
  • 25% bonus on Hertz Gold Plus Rewards Points
  • 675 Rewards Points after every 15 qualifying rentals
  • All the benefits of Hertz Gold status

You should see your new status in your account a few days after registering for the promotion.

Is It Worth It?

If you rent cars a lot, this is a no-brainer!  Because it should only take a few minutes to register.

That said, this promotion is supposed to be targeted to folks with Lufthansa Elite status, even though it appears to be working for everyone.  So there’s always the possibility that Hertz will reverse the free status in the end.

Because of this, I’d suggest taking a screenshot of your top-tier status with Hertz as soon as it’s confirmed.  Then get a match to elite status with other car rental companies, like National and Enterprise.

If Hertz claws back your top-tier status, you can always re-status-match with your new status from the other car rental company!

Bottom Line

Click here to register for free Hertz top-tier President’s Circle status with the code “501032.”

Once your status is confirmed, you can use it to get a status match with other car rental companies, like National and Enterprise!

No email from Hertz, but when I checked my online account, it says “Gold Plus Rewards President’s Circle”. Great. Thanks!

Just got the email this morning welcoming me to Presidents Circle. It did take about a week to process.

I followed the instructions from John below and it worked fine. Waiting for my confirmation email now, then will try to match with National. As always, thanks for the great info!

Not exactly sure how this works… Do I have to make a reservation in order to sign up for the deal? I’m already a Gold Plus member and when I sign in, the link automatically forwards me to the US version of the site. The code works as a senator discount, but doesn’t seem like I can go anywhere from there without having to book a car.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Brian, read my comment below. You don’t need to make any reservation and you don’t have to be Lufthansa Senator as well.

Thanks for the help John!!!

Very bad written article. Shame on you, Daraius.

Readers, to get the upgrade, sign-in to your Hertz account (or create your new one, if you don’t have it). Once signed in, go to and click on “Edit” next to “Personal Details”, where you can add a new CDP Number (501032). Make it preferred and do not forget to click to blue “Update” button.

I have tried this, and I am still showing Gold Plus Rewards.

I have logged in after to my Canadian account after, and under Corporate Discount Programs LH SENATOR is shown as Preferred.

Does it take some time to update?

I’m not from Hertz, so I cannot answer that question. Daraius should know, but he is not reading the comments very often. Let’s hope it is processed in batches and will be updated soon.

Did anyone get the update?

As of today, my status is “Gold Plus Rewards President’s Circle”. I haven’t received any email from Hertz, but my status has been changed. I hope same happened to you and all others. Good luck and Thanks MMS!

I assume/believe nobody did. I sent a message to Hertz about a week ago with question why my status hasn’t changed when my Lufthansa Senator status was linked to my Hertz profile as their promotion stays, but I have NOT received any response at all.
