Hertz Rental Car

Western Michigan University has a negotiated contract with Hertz Rent-A-Car.   The contract pricing includes damage waiver and liability protection.  There are various ways to make reservations after your travel has been approved.  Please refer to the documents below for more detailed information on the Hertz program and rates; Hertz Gold Plus Membership; Hertz reservation options; and Rental car program coverage policies and inclusions with emergency contact information while traveling.

Signing up for Hertz Gold Plus rewards means you can bypass the regular rental counter at airports and proceed directly to your pre-assigned vehicle.  At the Hertz Local Stadium Drive there is no waiting and your keys are ready for pickup inside. It also means you only have to complete one enrollment agreement and select your rental preferences one time.  An additional benefit is that you will receive email receipts.  As a Gold member, you will also be automatically enrolled in Hertz’s frequent renter program in which you will be able to earn higher levels of Gold service, personal free day certificates, free upgrades and bonus frequent flier miles.

If you currently have a Hertz Gold Plus Membership, please contact Jennifer Halseth at (269) 387-2154 to update your Hertz profile to receive WMU contract pricing and membership benefits. Also, your Gold Plus membership number can be added into your AAA traveler profile.
