Member benefits are similar for most car rental companies, but there are a few differences and some programs offer benefits not available through other companies.
Below, I've provided an overview of the member benefits for 8 car rental company's Frequent Renter Programs.
*Note: all car rental program names are registered trademarks and information regarding these program and terms and conditions can be found at the individual company websites.
Rental companies can modify benefits at any time; I make every attempt to maintain up-to-date info, but always check with an individual company to verify the availability of any benefit.
