ST. LOUIS, Aug. 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- National Car Rental, through its award-winning Emerald Club, is launching its annual One Two Free® promotion. The promotion offers registered Emerald Club members one free rental day* for every two qualifying rentals. Each free day covers base rate (time and mileage) only. To help members earn free days faster, this year's promotion offers additional promotional points to members who utilize National's newly updated mobile app to expedite their rental process with Emerald Checkout℠, which allows renters to scan any vehicle on National's Emerald Aisle, confirm their rental options and accelerate their checkout using a Virtual Pass. The "One Two Free" promotion begins today with an earning period through Feb. 28, 2019, and a redemption period through June 13, 2019.
As a premium brand serving frequent travelers around the world, National has also expanded this year's promotion to include Australia and New Zealand, while adding new promotional bonus point earning opportunities to registered members who become "world travelers" by completing rentals in three different countries.
"Each year, National offers the 'One Two Free' promotion to our Emerald Club members in appreciation of their strong loyalty, so we're excited to expand the program into more of the countries in which we do business," said Rob Connors, vice president of brand marketing for National Car Rental. "And because we recognize that technology is a critical part of the travel experience, this year we're offering more opportunities for customers leveraging National's app to enjoy and experience free rentals faster."
Emerald Club members can register for the promotion at www.emeraldclubpromos.com/12Free2018. Free days earned for qualifying rentals through "One Two Free" are awarded in addition to a member's chosen rewards earnings (frequent traveler miles/points or rental credits).
Each qualifying car rental completed during the "One Two Free" promotion is worth 300 points. A free day is then awarded once a registered Emerald Club member earns 600 points. During the "One Two Free" promotion, bonus points can be earned through other activities, including:
Using National's mobile app to book rentals while earning unlimited points (75 points per completed rental).
Completing three qualifying rentals (one-time bonus of 100 points upon completion of third rental).
