MileagePlus members also continue to earn 50 miles each day on all qualifying paid rentals of one to four days, or 500 miles per rental for qualifying rentals of five or more days, on car rentals with Dollar and Thrifty. Members can book with Hertz, Dollar and Thrifty using award miles on united.com. MileagePlus miles cannot be earned on any rental made using miles.

Earning MileagePlus miles with Hertz is easy; members just need to add their MileagePlus number to their car rental reservation when they book through united.com, Hertz.com, a travel agency or any other channel. Miles can be earned on car rentals picked up at any airport or off-airport location worldwide.

Which MileagePlus cardmembers are eligible to earn 750 miles per Hertz rental?

When will miles post to my MileagePlus account?

Please allow six to eight weeks after you complete your rental for the miles to credit to your account. If you earned more than 500 miles on your rental, the miles will appear as two separate entries on your account. One entry for 500 miles will credit, and a second entry for any additional miles that are earned based on MileagePlus status or card membership will post in five to ten business days.
