  1. I don’t know how accurate the Hertz increase listed in the article actually is. I just booked a free week in France for 2900 points when 5500 was listed as the new increased price.

    But then again, if SkyMiles are known as SkyPesos, Hertz Reward Points don’t even deserve a name as they’ve always been useless. To be fair, I don’t use Hertz for points collection. I use them as I value the President’s Circle rental benefits.
