    some of these are outdated, like it is AvisPresident’s club. If you want the card and can afford it, email icurme AT gmail DOT com and I may be able to help.

      During one year membership not one favor whatsoever .
      For about 10 favors and partner tickets requested all over the world not once successful.Let me know then to which destinations is it possible.After two months no reply. I went back to platinum. The services told me that the annual membership that was charged for one more year would be fully refunded. Because it took two months to finalize the paperwork after my request. Two more months were charged. This is the real experience!
