I’ve always loved getting the mail, because you never know what new credit card offer or travel promotion or 1099 form will show up in the day’s mail.

Today, Emily received a postcard from Avis offering 1 free rental day after every 2 rentals of at least 2 days.

The “Free to Get Away” offer details say that you’ll get your free rental day certificate via email within 2 weeks of your second rental.

Both Emily and I could register for the promotion.

This is very similar to National’s One Two Free promotion which ends on January 31, 2012, though they may extend it now.

However, there are some exclusions in the terms and conditions that limit the value of the offer.

1.   The terms say that the free rental days are NOT valid at Alaska, Newark, LaGuardia and JFK airports or at any metropolitan NY location.   Sorry New Yorkers!

2.   You can earn a maximum of 6 free rental day certificates.

3.   You don’t earn credit to a free rental day if you earn airline miles or hotel points for the rental.

4.  The terms say that blackout dates may apply, but doesn’t tell us what days those are.

Don’t forget to register before completing your rentals, since only rentals after registering count towards the promotion.

Also from terms and conditions from this promo:

“Free To Get Away reward will not be earned on rentals that receive mileage/credits/points for a frequent traveler program (i.e. airline frequent flyer, hotel points program, etc.) or Avis First Weekend Rental Rewards.”

So unlike the National Car Rental free day promo, it appears if you earn frequent flyer miles from the Avis rental you don’t qualify for the free day promo with Avis.

@joediver – I would probably collect the 3K US Air miles as well, but it is good option for those who prefer free rental days instead.

@Rapid Travel Chai & Deals We Like
– Thanks for the confirmation. I stay far away from NYC!

@Max M – The inability to earn miles does limit the value of the promotion!

Careful— Avis doesn’t award frequent flyer miles for rentals at its non-airport locations. Not sure if the non-Airport restriction is the policy with the free day promo, but be advised that if you do rent at a non-airport location that at the very least you won’t earn any frequent flyer miles on the rental.

The Newport location or Stamford Train location are not excluded from this promotion, I have become very familiar with those two locations 🙂

Newport is in Jersey City, New Jersey, seems should not be excluded. It just happens to be very convenient from NYC.

I think the miles are a better value. Right now US is offering 3,000 bonus miles per 3 day rental with Avis so if my math is correct for those same 12 rentals needed to get 6 free days I could get 36,000 miles plus 1 mile for each dollar I pay (conservatively another 2,400 miles).
