Today (Friday, April 13th) at 1pm Eastern time, Daily Getaways will be offering one of the few deals that looks almost universally good: Avis 1-day car rentals for $30 (President’s Club membership will also be available for $750). While there are certainly times when you can rent a car for less than $30 per day, there are also plenty of times when it would represent a nice discount over normal rates. Note the restrictions below before you dive in, but this could definitely be a deal.
- Daily Getaways is offering a one-day car rental certificate good for the car of your choice up to Premium (Group G) for $30 (starts at 1pm Eastern on 4/13/18 and will likely sell out)
- Direct link to $30 rental days
- Direct link to President’s Club Membership for $750 (only 20 available)
- This offer is valid at any participating Avis location in the U.S. (excluding the New York Metro area), Canada, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
- Max purchase quantity = 7
For a brief rundown of all of this years Daily Getaways deals, see our Frequent Miler quick reference guide to the Daily Getaways 2018:
Today’s offer for a 1-day Avis rental can certainly be a good deal to pick up if you sometimes run into rental rates that are much higher than $30 per day. You can buy a max of 7 and you can use a max of 7 on a single car rental. Since you can pick a class of car up to Premium (Group G), you can have your pick from compact/economy/full size regular cars.
On the flip side, keep in mind that the certificates are only valid in the US and exclude the New York Metro Area as well as Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. You will also be subject to an expiration policy on this as rentals must be completed by May 15, 2019. Also keep in mind that you will have to pay the usual extra taxes and fees (like airport facility charges) and that your credit card won’t cover rental insurance if you use a certificate like this instead of paying for the rental on your card. It’s not necessarily a deal for everyone, but at periods of high demand this could certainly present some savings.
Finally, since there are only 800 available, we expect that these will sell out quickly. You’ll probably need to pull up the page a few minutes before 1pm Eastern and constantly refresh if you want to get one.
The President’s Club membership for $750 doesn’t look particularly interesting to me. With only 20 available, you’re probably more likely to run into the President of Avis in an elevator and have his/her club membership magically bestowed upon you…but if you’re interested, I’ve included a link under “the deal”.
