If you’re considering renting a car in the near future, this new promotion by National Car Rental might catch your attention.

Here is everything you need to know.

National Car Rental Double Credit Offer Details

For a limited time, National Car Rental is offering double credit on qualifying weekend rentals of midsize or larger vehicles from participating locations in the U.S. between April 4, 2024, and June 9, 2024.

Other terms and conditions you should know before booking include:

  • Members must register during the promotional period
  • Member must be earning Emerald Club rewards and not partner rewards
  • Weekend rental must be a paid qualifying rental at a participating National Car Rental location in the U.S.
  • Weekend rental is defined as picked up on Thursday, Friday or Saturday and returned on Sunday
  • Qualifying rental must be picked up between April 4 through June 8, 2024
  • Qualifying rental must be returned no later than June 9, 2024
  • The vehicle must be Midsize or larger
  • Double credit will be deposited into member’s account within 14 days of rental return

If you want to earn double credit, you’ll need to make your booking directly with National. Remember that prepaid rentals made through Online Travel Agencies (OTAs) are not eligible for this promotion. If you choose to book through an OTA and prepay the rate, you won’t get the double credit.

Hot Tip:

You’ll want to ensure you book your rental car using a card that earns bonus points on travel purchases and features car rental insurance coverage. In addition, you can enhance your rental car experience by having one of the many credit cards with a car rental program elite status.

Final Thoughts

This promotion may be worthwhile if you plan to rent a car in the coming months and are taking a few weekend trips.

Given that National Emerald Club members receive 1 free rental day for every 7 rental credits, a few weekend rentals should result in a free 1-day rental car the next time you need wheels.
