If you’re a frequent traveller who has accumulated some loyalty points, you may be asking, “Can I use my frequent flyer points for a car hire?” Well, you might be in luck, depending on the car rental company and your frequent flyer program.
In past years, frequent flyer miles could only be used to purchase airline tickets. As loyalty programs have expanded however, there are now many more reciprocating companies. For example, most major domestic airlines are partnered with at least some, if not all, of the seven major car rental companies. This makes planning your travel much more convenient. It’s especially helpful if you don’t have enough miles accumulated to purchase an airline ticket. This way, you can still take advantage of your points program to save money on your holiday.
Regardless of your airline or rental car company, make sure to book your reservation as far in advance as possible. Many companies have restrictions on the dates or number of free rentals available at any given time. The more notice you have on your travel arrangements, the more likely you are to get your booking request accommodated.
