Hertz has extended the promotion for 5000 Marriott Rewards points per rental of five days or longer. Shorter rentals of more than two days are eligible for 2000 Marriott Rewards points. This offer is valid for pick up through February 28, 2014, at participating Hertz locations in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Puerto Rico, Australia and the New Zealand.
