Save 50% on your Hertz rental
If you  are renting a vehicle in the next three weeks, this is something you should definitely check out. Hertz is currently running a very limited time promotion that could probably save you big bucks. Hertz is offering upto 50% off all rentals booked in the next 24 hours using Promotion Code 194036. Now, chances are that you've used rental car coupons in the past and you probably know that a upto 50% is almost NEVER a 50% discount, but far lower. However, before you dismiss this deal as yet another gimmick meant to grab your attention give it a shot and see how it works for you. Why? Because we checked it out for a bunch of itineraries and the results were impressive.

Important Fine-print

As always, there are a bunch of terms and conditions you need to meet in order to qualify for the discount. Check out this quick summary to see if you qualify for this amazing deal
- Offer valid for reservations booked Oct 27 - Oct 28, 2013 for vehicle pickup from Oct 27 through Nov 15, 2013.
- Offer is redeemable at participating Hertz locations in the U.S, and Canada (excluding NY Metro, Florida and Phoenix, AZ)
- Valid on economy through Full-size cars and small SUV.

Testing the Waters: Daily Rental in Denver

Check out the results of a rental at Denver International Airport (DEN) from Nov 4, 2013 - Nov 7, 2013. The regular or rack rate for this rental comes out to $136. When we add Promo Code 194036 to the rental, the total drops to $80. That's a saving of $56 or a saving of 41% off the regular rate.

Testing the Waters: Weekly Rental in Atlanta

We saw similar results for a weekly rental in Atlanta Hartsfield International Airport. The regular rate was $288 for a Compact car and the discounted rate with this promotion was only $180. That's a saving of over $100 and reflects a 37% discount. Not bad at all.

Deal or Dud?

We tried a bunch of different itineraries (daily, weekly and weekend rentals) at a few different locations and the savings were always north of 30% off the regular rates.

Based on our limited testing, the Hertz Flash Sale appears to be the real DEAL!

Please note that most of us have different car rental requirements - location, date, time, vehicle, etc. As a result, we see different standard and discounted rates. Just because a promotion works well (or doesn't) for one person doesn't necessarily imply the same result for everyone else. The only way to find the best deal for your unique requirements is to try em' out for yourself.
