Directly from National

Emerald Club membership: Choice. Speed. Privilege.
Welcome to The Emerald Club®, the industry's premier car-rental reward program - powered by speed and choice. As a member, you have access to our signature Emerald Aisle® experience, designed to get you on the road in seamless fashion. You also earn rich rewards along the way, including Free Rental Days, frequent-flyer miles or hotel rewards.

Membership in The Emerald Club means getting on the road in three easy steps:

1. RESERVE

Always reserve a Midsize car to begin your Aisle experience.


2. BYPASS THE COUNTER

Go straight to the Aisle - the keys are in the cars.

3. CHOOSE ANY CAR

Any size, color, make or model on the Aisle is yours at the reserved Midsize rate.
OK. now I am confused. I thought that if you booked a Midsize, you could only choose form the Midsize Aisle (or lower). For instance, you can't go a grab a minivan or a convertible.

If you're an Emerald Club member, you reserve a midsize and go to the Emerald Aisle to choose. You MAY find a minivan there, maybe even a convertible. Not necessarily though.

Now I remember! The Emerald Aisle is a separate aisle of cars in addition to the car class aisles. I usually troll through the Executive Aisle, the Emerald Aisle and the aisles Full Size and below (I am an Emerald Club Executive and get a FS when I book a MS) and then choose the car that sparks my fancy. Sometimes I'll take a Compact because it's a cute car, much to my DH's chagrin.

I am Executive level as well. You have to book mid-size to get Emerald Aisle service but can take any car from Emerald (or if your Executive anything from Emerald or Executive )

The Alamo rates for April haven't dropped but Dollar has. We have a 8 day rental, midsize for 165 with a free upgrade from BJ's. So, we'll be happy with a full size or a midsize. Hope this helps if anyone else is looking.

I too, would be very interested in finding out if this code works easily at MCO. I'll be heading down in early May for a graduation and I haven't been to FL since I dropped her off four years ago. I really prefer to book w/ National as I've always done previously, but the prices are crazy right now and I need to book an SUV to move her stuff. This code gives me a good price, but I'd like to know if it's legit.

Also, if I sign my dad up for the EC now, will he get his card by early May? He's only going for 2 days, but he wants to use the EA if possible.

Thanks!

Thanks for the code! It got me a mid size for $203 for April 28 to May 5, for a mid size, I am an Emerald member. Also used National's $25 off weekly rental code.

I did sign up for the KLM membership, so it is all above board. I will bring a printout of that information with me.

For an SUV, I got this AVIS email:


Rent an Intermediate SUV for as low as $22 a weekend day or $149 a week or a Standard SUV for $25 a weekend day or $169 a week until June 30, 2012.

The code is AWD S767700


I am not using it myself, this trip, because I only need a mid size. There some dates that are excluded, probably the Easter weeks, but otherwise it has worked for me.

We used the code the for our Feb 18-25th trip with no problem...I think. We booked as Emerald Club members and were able to go right to the aisle and pick our vehicle. (A Kia Sportage with 6,000 miles) Upon returning the vehicle, for some reason the garage person couldn't give us a receipt so they said it would be emailed it to us but we still haven't gotten one. When I log into our EA acct online and pull up the details for that rental it shows that we paid the quoted price of $221.xx but that the total was $423.xx with a balance due of $202.xx, yet our credit card was only charged $221.xx on the day we returned and it was manually entered. The difference seems to be all the "included" extras. No other charges have been run on our CC since then so I guess its ok.
