Budget Introduces Latin American/Caribbean Promotion For Travel Agents

 Latin America and the Caribbean are still among the hottest vacation destinations. To help agents get their clients there, Budget Rent A Car System, Inc. has announced the launch of a Latin American / Caribbean Promotion for U.S. travel agents enrolled in Unlimited Budget, the travel agent loyalty program. Now through November 30, travel agents are eligible to receive cash prizes for booking their customers a Budget car in these regions. First and second place awards will be given to the agents that make the most Budget reservations (based on completed rentals), while the third place winner will be rewarded for generating the most revenue. Award denominations are as follows:

* First Place: $1,000
* Second Place: $500
* Third Place: $250

The promotion will run in three periods (June 1 - July 31, August 1 - September 30, and October 1 - November 30) to allow travel agents three chances to win one of the three prizes. Awards will be added to the Unlimited Budget stored value MasterCard(r) card. This cash can then be used to make purchases anywhere MasterCard is accepted (excluding ATM withdrawals).
