Benefits of Executive Elite Status

- Guaranteed upgrades if you reserve at least a mid-size car.
- Bypass the counter and get to your rental even faster.
- Choose your own car from the National Elite lot.
- No fees for a second driver.
- Free rental days if you earn enough rental credit.
Please note that most of the benefits are limited to rentals in the USA or Canada. Since the company has most of its locations in one of these two countries, this isn’t a big surprise. And since it’s completely free, it is definitely worth it!
