Emerald Club Enrollment

You've got a lot of miles ahead of you. We'll help make them more rewarding.

Whether you hit the road twice a month or twice a year, business travel is no picnic.

At National, we're doing our part to make things easier by changing the way business travelers rent cars - with The Emerald Club. Membership gives you services and perks designed to get you in, out and on your way faster than ever before. You can earn your choice of Free Rental Days or frequent traveler miles / points - and get upgraded to elite membership levels when you rent with National more often.

Bypass the counter & choose your own car

On some business trips, you're lucky if you get to choose a restaurant on your own. But with the Emerald Club AisleTM, you can bypass the counter and choose any car on this exclusive section of the lot when you reserve a midsize car. With our dedication to bringing you the industry's newest fleet, the Emerald Club Aisle has the most up-to-date midsize cars to choose from. Click here for a listing of Emerald Aisle locations.

Get an E-receipt

By choosing automatic E-Receipts, there's no need to wait for an agent to give you a receipt. Instead, we'll automatically email it to you after each rental.

Choose your rewards

Choose Free Rental Days or Frequent Traveler miles / points as your reward.

Free Rental Days

You earn one Free Rental Day after seven rental credits. You earn one rental credit per paid rental or for every four consecutive paid days. You can also earn bonus rental credits by taking advantage of Emerald Club promotions. Redeeming Free Rental Days is easy, too. We've put everything you need online.

Earn Miles / Points

With The Emerald Club, hitting the road can get you up in the air. You can choose to automatically earn airline or hotel miles / points with one of our many Frequent Traveler partners.

Aspire higher

Your Emerald Club membership helps make business travel easy and efficient, but you can enjoy even more with Emerald Club Executive. Additional benefits of Executive status include:

  • Only National offers the Executive Selection - a special area of our lot featuring fullsize and higher class cars. Simply reserve a midsize or fullsize car, bypass the counter, choose your car and pay only the reserved midsize rate. Every time you rent from the Executive Selection, you receive an upgrade. As an Emerald Club Executive member, you always pay for one car class less than reserved when you book a fullsize through luxury car. (For example, if you rent a premium car, you only pay the fullsize rate.)
    Click here for a listing of Executive Selection locations.

  • Free Rental Day with just six rental credits.
    To move up to Executive, just make 12 to 24 paid rentals or have 40 to 84 paid rental days during a calendar year.
