Venture X Cardholders – Don’t Forget To Activate Hertz President Circle Status

by joeheg

The Venture X card from Capital One provides several perks for travelers. Some overlap other mid-range to luxury cards, such as Priority Pass club access and TSA Precheck/Global Entry reimbursement. However, there is one benefit of the Venture X that you’ll only find with one other luxury travel card – complimentary Hertz President’s Circle membership.

This is Hertz’s top-tier status and usually requires 15 rentals or spending $3000.

Capital One didn’t proactively remind me to activate my status and it took a few clicks on the website to find out how to do it. These directions are for a desktop, although I’d think the process is similar on mobile devices.

Once logged into your account,  click on the Redeem button in the Explore Rewards tab.

Then you need to click on the Discover Travel tab.

Here’s where you’ll find a list of all the benefits the Venture X card offers. Click on the Hertz President’s Circle status.

That’s where you’ll be able to register for President’s Circle status by entering your account information. Make sure your name and email exactly match your existing Hertz account information. If you don’t already have a Hertz account, you can create one via the link.

I immediately received a message saying my account was verified and my status would update within 24-72 hours.

While my account status hasn’t been updated yet, Hertz added the Capital One Venture X discount code to my account. By default, it was flagged as the primary discount. I needed to go back and put my corporate discount as the primary code to use when booking with Hertz, as I’ve found better rates using that than any other discounts available.

I’ll have to see if having President’s Circle status means getting a better car. Right now, I’m happy if they have any cars at all when I show up at the airport.

Also, don’t forget to lawyer up before you rent from Hertz. From a case in Delaware:


1. For years, The Hertz Corporation (together with its affiliates, collectively, “Hertz”
or the “Debtors”) has been falsely reporting its customers for car theft, throwing them in jail on
felony charges, prosecuting them, burdening them with criminal records that impact their
livelihoods, and separating them from their family and loved ones. But in each case, there was no

@Brutus, was about to say the same thing. Reading their stories of what happened to them is horrifying!
