We’re in the second week of Daily Getaways, which is an opportunity to purchase discounted hotel points and travel packages. Daily Getaways go live at 1PM ET every weekday, and the more popular packages sell out very quickly, so you’ll want to be fast, if interested.

Today at 1PM ET you’ll have the opportunity to purchase discounted Avis rentals and status. Like many of the Daily Getaways offers, this is pretty niche, but some will find it worthwhile.

Here are the details of the offers:

Avis is selling one day rentals for $30. Each person can buy up to seven of these packages, and there are a total of 500 on sale. The rentals need to be consumed by June 15, 2020, and are valid at participating Avis locations in the US (excluding the New York metro area), Canada, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands.

They’re valid for rentals of premium cars (Group G). When redeeming these certificates you’re still responsible for paying taxes, concession recovery fees, vehicle license recovery fees, customer facility charges, etc.

If you successfully buy one of these packages you’ll receive a paper voucher in the mail within 10 business days, and can then make your booking online or by phone.

There are plenty of cities where you won’t really find car rentals for under $30 per day, where this can be an excellent deal.

You can also buy Avis President’s Club status for $750, and there are 20 of those packages available. Here’s what they advertise as the benefits for President’s Club status:

Start your journey with a guaranteed car – Avis will always have a car for you, even when you don’t have a reservation. Avis also provides other exclusive services to President’s Club members including:

Two-car-class upgrade (subject to availability)Guaranteed car every time you rentPresident’s Club dedicated reservation/customer service line50% Avis Preferred Point bonusExclusive email offersMembership benefits available through June 15, 2020 at participating locations in the U.S. and Canada.

I don’t have any experience with this status, so can’t really speak much to it.

Which credit card should you use for Daily Getaways?

In case you do decide to make a purchase, Daily Getaways purchases should be coded as travel, so you’ll want to use a credit card offering bonus points on travel.

Note that this includes the general “travel” category, rather than these purchases specifically being coded as car rentals.

So consider one of the following cards:

Bottom line

This deal isn’t for everyone, but I think buying Avis rentals for $30 per day could make a lot of sense, assuming you frequently redeem in expensive markets. I can’t quite make the math work on the President’s Club status, though, but maybe I’m missing something.

Anyone plan on taking advantage of Avis’ Daily Getaways promotion?
