Great news if you have elite status with Hertz and are feeling generous this holiday season — Hertz is allowing members to share their President’s Circle or Five Star status with friends and family!
This is a limited-time offer, so if you know someone that could use some upgrades, this is a great time to share some status.
Give the Gift of Elite Status
Current Five Star and President’s Circle elite members with Hertz Gold Plus Rewards can gift their status level to 1 friend, family member, or work colleague for free.
The gifted status can be used until June 30, 2022.
How To Share Your Hertz President’s Circle or Five Star Status
Once you have decided who is going to be the lucky recipient of your Hertz elite status gift, you will need to complete the following steps:
- Log into your Hertz Gold Plus account
- Visit the Give the Gift of Elite Status page
- Complete the form
The process is very simple and both parties will receive a confirmation email when the gifting is complete.
Hot Tip: Select Delta SkyMiles Medallion levels come with complimentary Five Star or President’s Circle status, and you can also status match elite levels from other rental car programs. Check out the ultimate guide to Hertz and the Hertz Gold Plus Rewards program for more details.
Hertz Gold Plus Rewards Benefits
At the very least, anyone renting from Hertz should sign up for Hertz Gold Plus rewards purely for the fact that you can skip the line and go right to your assigned car — a huge timesaver nowadays.
However, with Five Star or President’s Circle elite status, members can choose their own cars, receive upgrades, earn bonus points, and more.

Although the gifted status only lasts for 6 months, this is still a great little promotion by Hertz.
President’s Circle status can be very valuable when it comes to scoring an upgrade, and being able to share perks is a great (free) gift to give to a fellow traveler.
The process is simple, so if you know someone who might enjoy some elite status, don’t wait!
