Annual Promotion Gives Emerald Club Members Chance to Earn Free Rental
TORONTO, Aug. 20, 2014 /CNW/ - National Car Rental, the award-winning car rental brand for frequent business travellers,
is launching its annual Rent Rent Reward® promotion. In the eight years
that National has run the program, it has set the standard for frequent
renter programs in the car rental industry. The promotion offers
registered Emerald Club members one free rental day* for every two qualifying rentals** of a
mid-sized or larger vehicle for two or more consecutive days. This year
National has increased the chances to earn promotional points by adding
options such as a GPS or by renting through Emerald Club's newly
launched Priority Service in Mexico. Members can earn up to 50 free
rental days by participating in the promotion, which includes an
earning period from today through January 31, 2015.
"We are pleased to offer our loyal Emerald Club members the chance to
earn additional rewards through our annual 'Rent Rent Reward'
promotion," said Rob Connors, assistant vice president of brand
marketing for National. "Providing our customers - both new and current
- with the best service available is our continued goal, and this
promotion is just one way we can help make their rental experiences
more convenient and enjoyable."
Continuing last year's successful point-based system, Emerald Club
members can once again earn points for each qualifying rental, as well
as bonus points for non-rental activities. Each qualifying car rental
completed during the "Rent Rent Reward" promotion is worth 300 points,
with a free day awarded once an Emerald Club member earns 600 points.
Opportunities to earn qualifying rental and bonus points during the
promotional earning window include:
