Two Promotions Available With Budget Rent-A-Car UK

 From now until the end of January, customers booking domestic car rental online with Budget Rent-a-Car can add a free additional driver to the rental agreement. As an extra bonus, Budget is also offering the opportunity to enter a prize draw to win a chauffeur-driven car for a week. The lucky winner will be able to travel in style and arrive at their destination in complete comfort and safety.

Jill Grinsted, director of sales and marketing, EMEA at Budget said: "As part of our commitment to road safety, we have teamed up with road safety charity, Brake. For renters to be able to add the name of an additional driver at no extra charge really makes sense, especially as we enter the party season."

The 'Free Additional Driver' campaign and chauffeur-drive prize draw runs until 31 January 2005. All bookings must be made online at and pre-paid. The promotion applies to rentals in England, Scotland and Wales but excludes London airport locations.
