The blog will be undergoing some maintenance tomorrow, so I wanted to post tomorrow’s Daily Getaway promotion in advance as I will not be able to add any new posts after 10pm EST today.
Tomorrow’s Daily Getaway promotion (Day 10) is a one day Avis car rental for $33. This certificate is valid for any car-class up to a Premier car (Group G) and includes time and mileage. While $33/day might be good for some reservations, I do not think this is a great deal as I am typically able to get a car for much cheaper. I personally wouldn’t purchase this deal speculatively unless you know of a certain rental where you can’t get cheaper than $33/day (including tax). And unfortunately New York City is excluded. This certificate expires March 31, 2014.
Keep in mind that this is not valid for one way rentals and the terms state that you must return the car to the same facility you picked it up at. Also, you are able to combine up to 7 of these certificates for your entire rental.
Here are the terms from the Daily Getaways page:
- Coupon certificate entitles the intended recipient to one (1) day’s daily time and mileage charges of any car-class up to a Premium (group G) car. Specialty car classes such as H, F, W, Z, L, V, P, K, X (Cool Cars), and S are excluded.
- Taxes, concession recovery fees, vehicle license recovery fee, customer facility charges ($10/contract in CA) may apply and are the responsibility of the bearer.
- Optional products such as LDW ($29.99/day or less) and refueling are extra. A redemption fee may apply.
- Offer subject to vehicle availability at time of reservation and may not be available on some rates at some times.
- Cars must be returned to renting location.
- For reservations made on Avis.com, reward day will be applied at time of rental.

- Rental reward coupons are valid at participating Avis locations in the U.S. (excluding the New York Metro area), Canada, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
- If a rental begins during a blackout period, the whole rental is blacked out and does not qualify for use of a coupon certificate.

Coupon certificates that have been sold, altered, or copied are void and will not be honored. Intended recipient of this coupon certificate must visit the Avis counter to sign and surrender this coupon certificate at the time of rental.

- Additional restrictions may apply.
This Daily Getaway is also offering Avis Chairman’s Club Membership for $1,115! If you purchase this, the membership will be valid through July 31, 2014. While this is totally not worth it in my mind, you might like the personal service. You will be taken directly from the airport to your car with no waiting in lines or anything. On your return, Avis will valet your car for you as well. You’ll also always be guarenteed a car, even if you do not have an advance reservation. Complimentary upgrades (subject to availability) will also be yours when you reserve an intermediate or higher car. And Avis will deliver your car to you anywhere within a 25 miles radius. If this is of interest, which I totally think is NOT worth it, there are only 15 available.
This deal will go on sale at 1pm EST TOMORROW Friday June 21th. Availability is extremely limited with so if you are interested make sure to act fast. This deal will go within seconds, mark my word. I suggest getting on the computer a few minutes beforehand and continuously clicking the refresh button so you can make the purchase immediately. Also remember, like all other Daily Getaway promotions, you’ll receive 10% off the purchase price if you use any American Express credit card.
