BUDGET OFFERS FREE LOCAL RENTALS TO PERFECT DRIVE MEMBERS
|For those who frequently rent cars in their local neighborhoods for short haul trips or when the relatives come to town, Budget Rent a Car has a "perfect" offer. Members of Budget's Perfect Drive customer loyalty program can now earn a free one-day, non-airport, non-peak rental after just four qualifying rentals through May 31, 2000.|
Perfect Drive members who earn free rental days can choose from economy, compact, intermediate and full size cars, or even Ranger pickups. Free rental days also can be earned by redeeming a set number of Perfect Drive points (e.g. one day = 300 points, two days = 600 points). As a bonus, there is no restriction on the number of redemptions a customer can earn during this special local market promotion. All qualifying rentals, both airport and local market, between November 1, 1999 and May 31, 2000, are eligible for the offer. Launched on April 1, 1998, with Callaway Golf(r) as Budget's initial program partner, Perfect Drive has continued to grow steadily in membership. In addition to car rentals, members can redeem their Perfect Drive points for K2(r) high performance skis, Bolle(r) eyewear, airline miles, Cruise America motorhomes and motorcycle rentals, and resort vacation and cruise ship packages.
