National Emerald Club One Two Free Promotion Is Back For Rentals August 25 – January 31, 2017

National Car Rental’s popular One Two Free promotion for Emerald Club members has returned for rentals that take place between August 25 – January 31, 2017.

National Car Rental One Two Free 2016

Members can earn 300 bonus points for every Midsize or larger rental of two days or longer in the United States, and there are account specific bonus opportunities as well.

You can access and register for this promotion here.

You can combine up to three free one night rentals when making a reservation and the free rentals must be used by June 15, 2017, or they expire.


This is one of the better car rental promotions if you are after free rental days. You will earn one for every two rentals of two days or longer which is very good.  Free rental days can also be used for one way rentals, which are typically a lot more expensive than renting from and returning to the same airport.

Here are the terms and conditions:
