• How to Get a AAA Discount on a Rental Car

    Getting a AAA discount on a rental car is just one of the many benefits of being a AAA member. All of the major rental car companies offer a standard discount to AAA members and AAA has partnered with Hertz to offer even bigger discounts and benefits  to their members.

    AAA Membership

    While AAA is available across the country, each state has their own branch. You join the AAA club of the state that you live in but your benefits are available in any state you happen to be in. There are numerous benefits to AAA membership in addition to the standard roadside assistance. AAA offers maps, travel services, and discounts on hotels, rental cars and hundreds of other partner businesses. AAA membership is priced reasonably and available benefits far outweigh the costs.

    AAA Discount

    All of the major rental car companies offer a standard discount to all AAA members. It is often around 10%. You simply show your AAA when booking the car or at the counter when you pick it up. If you are booking online there is a discount code that you can use. This code can be found simply by typing AAA in the search box at the rental car companies website. You will be asked for your AAA card # so be sure to have it handy.

    Hertz

    AAA has made Hertz its exclusive partner when it comes to rental cars. Hertz offers AAA members a number of additional benefits that are not available at other rental companies.
