If you love to ferret out great deals, then you just might jump up and down when you see the savings that United offers on car rentals. By reserving a car on united.com, you can qualify for discounts that are far more impressive than what you’ll find on the usual travel websites or even the car-rental companies’ websites. Plus, by booking before you fly, you’ll arrive at your destination with a vehicle waiting for you.
United offers great savings. When you use our discount codes, you’ll find rates that are as much as 35 percent less than what you’ll see elsewhere. But the benefits don’t stop there. Besides the cost savings, you earn more MileagePlus® miles when you book with our preferred car partners than you would receive when booking through other websites: a 150 mile bonus for booking with us online plus 75 miles per day for your car rental.
Reserve a car on united.com
To reserve a car, you can start right from our home page, using the blue trip search box – the same tool you’re already familiar with for reserving flights. Just select the Car tab, fill in your pick-up and drop-off locations and the dates, times and car type, and then press the Search
button and you're on your way.
If you're someone who prefers to dig more deeply into the details right from the start, choose the white Advanced Search link at the bottom of the trip search box. On the Car Search page, you can get more detailed with what you’re looking for. For example, you can search by our preferred partner companies or select special options you'd like in your rental car. A navigational system, satellite radio or child safety seat are just a few of the options available to you.
MileagePlus® members qualify for additional discounts and greater mileage earning. Sign in
to take advantage of these benefits.
Once you've scanned all the car rentals available to you, go ahead and make your car reservation just like you do with a flight: Pick the one you like best and reserve it.

A note about our ground transportation partners

Redeem MileagePlus miles for car rentals
MileagePlus members: Did you know that there’s a website dedicated to hotel and car awards where you can redeem miles
for hotels, cars or both?
To redeem miles for a car rental or upgrade to a larger or sportier vehicle, after you enter your car-rental information in the search box, you’ll arrive on a page of car-rental options. Note the box to the right of each car option, with the number of miles required to reserve the car.
MileagePlus members: You know what we're going to say next. Before you get too far with your car reservation, sign in
to your MileagePlus account to view any preferred pricing and to redeem miles.
Try out the GroundLink car service
If you’re looking for an alternative to a car rental or taxi cab, why don’t you try reserving through GroundLink? This car service offers great rates from major airports to your final destination. Visit the GroundLink site
The benefits are clear: Booking a car through United – especially if you’re a MileagePlus member – delivers deeper discounts than what you can find on the standard car-rental websites. Go to united.com or our Hotel and Car Awards website and enjoy the ride.
