Enterprise Rent-A-Car and National Car Rental announced the extension of several loyalty benefits that had been set to expire soon.

National’s Emerald Club program of free rental days, previously set to expire on Dec. 31, will roll over through Sept. 4, 2023. National also has extended “elite tier” status for qualifying loyalty program members. This includes National’s Emerald Club Executive and Executive Elite, whose status was set to expire on Feb. 28, 2023. If those members made or make at least one qualifying rental by the end of 2022, their elite status will be extended until Feb. 28, 2024.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car’s “Plus Your Points” promotion has returned this year to enable registered Enterprise Plusmembers to earn double points on qualifying rentals. The promotion will also offer the opportunity to extend elite tier status for Enterprise Plus Silver, Gold and Platinum members whose status was set to expire on Feb. 28, 2023.

To qualify for tier extension, Enterprise Plus members will need to register for the “Plus Your Points” promotion and then make, or have already made, one qualifying rental by the end of 2022, which will extend their elite status until Feb. 28, 2024.

Liz Ott, vice president of global brand strategy for Enterprise Holdings, said the extensions give Emerald Club members flexibility to use their free days through next summer and offer many Emerald Club and Enterprise Plus members an extra year to enjoy the benefits of their elite status.
