You’re right to ask, “What’s in it for me?” when it comes to the discounts you receive at these four major rental car companies as an AOPA member. But AOPA benefits along with you. Part of your rental fee is returned to AOPA by the car rental companies so that we can put those funds to use on behalf of general aviation.
Each car rental company offers a different deal and different combinations of deals. For example, Hertz gives AOPA members a FREE membership in its Hertz #1 Club Gold. That alone is a $60 value. As an AOPA member, that $60 fee is waived. See what we mean about getting your $39 money’s worth for your AOPA dues?
What Hertz #1 Club Gold membership gets you is expedited service. At more than 40 of the busiest airports worldwide, you can go straight to your rental car. And at 1,000 more locations, you go to the Gold Counter, show your driver’s license and pick up your keys. No standing in line for AOPA members.
