ST. LOUIS, MO--(Marketwire - August 20, 2009) - National Car Rental, a leader in serving the daily rental needs of the frequent airport traveler, is launching its seventh annual "One-Two-Free" Emerald Club promotion, which runs through January 31, 2010.

Emerald Club customers must register at in order to be eligible. For every two qualifying rentals with National, the company's Emerald Club members earn one free rental day -- with no limit to the number of free days they can earn with National. Participating members can also earn a free rental day for referring a friend, plus standard program rewards for all rentals.

This year's extended program covers a longer period of time -- almost five months -- and offers Emerald Club members more than nine months to redeem their free rental days (from September 17, 2009, to June 25, 2010). In keeping with the speed and convenience of the Emerald Club rental experience, National notifies participants about their free rental days via email.

There are no enrollment fees to join National's Emerald Club, which offers faster service at airports, self-service kiosks, free upgrades and a choice of program rewards.

National is owned by Enterprise Holdings, Inc., which also operates Enterprise Rent-A-Car. National and Enterprise offer car rental customers an unparalleled network of neighborhood and airport locations worldwide. "We represent the most comprehensive and competitive service provider the car rental industry has ever seen," said Rob Hibbard, Vice President of Airport Business Development.

"We are always looking for ways to exceed customer expectations," Hibbard explained. "For example, Emerald Club is already the most robust customer loyalty program in the industry -- and this year's extended 'One-Two-Free' coverage adds even more value for consumers and business customers alike."
