Would you like Hertz Gold Plus Rewards points or Hertz Gold Plus Rewards points with your next Hertz car rental?

Hertz, which filed for bankruptcy early in the pandemic, and also devalued the Gold Plus Rewards program in May of 2019, has removed the ability to add your frequent flyer number to your reservation to earn miles and a Doctor of Credit reader has confirmed this by contacting Hertz and was told it’s no longer an option.

That actually reminded me that I wanted to convert some Gold Plus Rewards points to frequent flyer miles. Unfortunately, the page where you enact those transfers no longer has any reference so transferring points and I’d say it’s safe to say that Hertz points will stay Hertz points until they are used for Hertz rentals or expire.

This is not a huge surprise, given the Hertz bankruptcy, since they need to spend money to buy you the miles. It seems that things are such that they would much rather have your points on the books as a liability than spend any cash whatsoever.
