National & Guy Salmon Launches At The 2006 Business Travel Show

 As the Official Car Rental Partner for the 2006 Business Travel Show, National Car Rental and sister company Guy Salmon Prestige Rental will be using the event to launch two major developments; Drive Safe -- a unique road safety initiative developed to give rental drivers greater confidence when driving abroad, and Driving Dreams -- a gift experience to remember!

And to make the launches all the more memorable, visitors to the stand will be invited to take part in a fun quiz to test their knowledge of driving abroad -- all those that take part will be entered into a prize draw to win a fantastic Guy Salmon car for the weekend with one night's stay at The De Vere Belfry resort in beautiful North Warwickshire.

In a development that has tapped into the immense knowledge of National's global network, Drive Safe has been created to provide essential information on road rules in over 40 countries worldwide. Customers can simply log on and download information on the driving regulations and requirements for the country they are visiting. At launch, the information will be available in 5 languages -- English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.

The launch of Drive Safe provides a great opportunity for travel managers and bookers to add value to the service they can provide to business travellers -- instilling fresh confidence in those who need to drive overseas.

Whilst driving abroad can be a great experience, so can driving in the UK -- especially if it's in a prestige car from Guy Salmon Prestige Rental. And with the launch of Guy Salmon's Driving Dreams vouchers, businesses can offer staff a powerful incentive.

Driving Dreams vouchers can be purchased for one day, a weekend or up to 7 days rental for any of the 23 different models on fleet comprising Performance, Executive, Fun, Luxury and Utility vehicles. Presented with a gift box, which contains a personalised message, the recipient will be left in no doubt of the quality of experience they have been given.

Kim Brown, Marketing Director says, "The fact that we are official car rental partner at this year's show demonstrates our commitment to the business travel sector. Whilst Drive Safe and Driving Dreams will be our main focus we will also be discussing the launch of Drive National our new international online corporate booking tool due for launch in Quarter 2 2006, as well as our global network expansion. We look forward to welcoming visitors to the stand and encouraging them to take part in our fun driving quiz."

The event is being held in at Kensington Olympia in London on January 31st, February 1st and 2nd 2006.
