Car/Limo Rentals

 September 27, 1999

 Thrifty Car Rental will offer customers a deal that is nothing short of a "trip" - a free Rand McNally TripMaker(r) CD-ROM when they rent from Thrifty at any U.S. and Canadian airport location from now through Nov. 20, 1999, or while supplies last.
To receive a free TripMaker CD-ROM, customers should mention PC 7344 when making an advance reservation, or simply request a copy at the counter.
TripMaker, a powerful trip planning tool for use on an IBM-compatible computer, has a suggested retail price of $29.95. The CD-ROM provides maps and trip planning functions for over one million miles of roads across North America, including hotels, restaurants and attractions.
"This is really a terrific promotional item. Customers who have received it have gone out of their way to tell us what a great piece of software it is," said Executive Vice President of Thrifty, Scott Anderson.
The free CD-ROM is available upon request at all U.S. and Canadian Thrifty Car Rental airport locations. There is no minimum length of rental and no specific pick-up days required to receive the free software.
The TripMaker promotion is running in conjunction with another popular promotion at Thrifty: double and triple miles with select airline partners, and triple Hilton HHonors partner bonus points when customers rent at Thrifty airport locations in the U.S. and Canada.
From Sept. 7 through Nov. 20, 1999, frequent flyers earn double miles with American Airlines, America West, TWA and Continental Airlines.
Members of the United Airlines Mileage Plus program will receive triple Mileage Plus miles during this period, and members of Hilton HHonors will receive triple HHonors bonus points when a valid Thrifty rental agreement or keys are presented at hotel check-in.
Rentals of up to 14 days in length will be eligible for the bonus miles, with additional days awarded at the standard level. Other limitations may apply.
Customers are allowed to participate in the TripMaker promotion and still receive bonus airline miles and hotel points.
