Earn Free Days with the Return of National Car Rental's "Rent Rent Reward" Promotion

Annual Promotion Gives Emerald Club Members Chance to Earn Free Rental Days

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:

Activities Available Points
Complete a rental in Mexico 300
Add the fuel service option (FSO) to a rental to pre-pay for a tank of gas 250
Add a GPS to a rental 250

Current Emerald Club members can register for the promotion at www.emeraldclub.ca/rent. Free days earned for qualifying rentals through the "Rent Rent Reward" promotion are awarded in addition to a member's chosen rewards earnings (frequent traveller miles/points or rental credits.)

New customers can join National's Emerald Club at www.emeraldclub.ca/rent and immediately take part in the "Rent Rent Reward" promotion. There are no fees to join, and members enjoy expedited service at airports and free upgrades in National's "Emerald Aisle," an exclusive section of the lot where members can select any vehicle as long as they reserve a mid-sized car. In addition, Emerald Club members can choose to receive EmeraldAlertsSM - emailed communications that include Arrival and Return Alerts, and Drop & GoSM service with convenient eReceipts.

Emerald Club members may track and redeem the free rental days they earn through "Rent Rent Reward" between today and June 15, 2015, by visiting www.emeraldclub.ca/rent. Up to three free days can be redeemed per rental at any time, including weekends. In keeping with the speed and convenience of the Emerald Club rental experience, National notifies participants about their free rental days via email.

* Earned free day may be redeemed to cover base rate for a rental day but excludes taxes, governmentally-authorized or imposed surcharges, license recoupment/air tax recovery, concession recoupment fees, airport and airport facility fees, fuel, one-way rental charge, additional driver fee, or optional items, which shall be the responsibility of the renter. 

**A qualifying rental is the paid rental, via the Emerald Club, of a mid-sized or larger vehicle at participating locations in Canada (excluding Quebec) and the 50 United States, for a period of two or more consecutive days during the promotion.
