National Car Rental’s Emerald Club executive and executive elite members as well as Enterprise Rent-A-Car’s Enterprise Plus silver, gold and platinum elite members whose status was set to expire on Feb. 28, 2022, will be extended to Feb. 28, 2023, due to the impact of Covid-19 on customers’ travel plans, Enterprise Holdings announced. In addition, Emerald Club free days that were set to expire on Dec. 31, 2022, also will be extended for 12 months to Dec. 31, 2023.
“We recognize the plans of many travelers continue to be impacted during these dynamic times and that many of our loyalty members may have not had the chance to use their hard-earned benefits,” said Enterprise Holdings EVP global mobility and customer experience Randal Narike in a statement.
The extensions are the latest in a string of loyalty status accommodations made by Enterprise and National. Last year, both Enterprise Plus and Emerald Club were first in the industry to announce extensions to elite tiers for a full year. National’s Emerald Club also extended the use of its program free days for a full year.
