When you have National Car Rental's Executive Emerald Club status, you can choose any vehicle from the Emerald Aisle while paying only the mid-size sedan rate. There are usually only two ways to get Executive Emerald Club status: complete 12 rentals in a calendar year or for 40 rental days. The other way is to get it as a free benefit from the American Express Platinum card.
