The National Car Rental Company

Sep 11, 2008
The National Car Rental is one of the oldest and the pioneer in the car rental business. For over 56 years National car Rentals has been introducing new services to keep its customers happy and is famous for the one way rental scheme where customers drop the car off at a different depot.

To maintain their position, NCR brought in a computer system second to none which has simplified the procedure of renting a car whether online or over the phone. After the airline industry deregulation in 1976, which pushed the cost of flying up, National Car Rentals introduced a scheme where car rental customers paid a flat rate as an incentive to use a car instead of a plane.

With the rise of the business traveler, NCR were quick to see the potential and one of the early pioneers of the corporate business account. Although the scheme has been adapted and copied over the years, fundamentally, the frequent renter program was brought in by National Car Rentals after their work with the corporate rental sector. The computing system brought in by National Car Rentals also had another benefit; it meant that reservations were made faster and the paperless rental agreement was born; you may have heard it called The Emerald Club. The Emerald Aisle program enables customers to select the cars that they want, with paperless ease, bypassing the rental counter, and getting them on their way faster and more efficiently. For many car renters, the only concern they have is what car they drive and can they miss the rental counter; well at National Car Rentals, both of these are possible with Choice Rental Process and QuickRent, two very popular schemes with their customers.

Putting the customer's needs ahead of anything else is a hallmark of national Car Rentals and to highlight this they have arranged discounts with a large number of associated companies. These companies include, Air Canada, Air Miles, Air France, Alaska Airlines, Alitalia, America West airlines, American Airlines, ATA airlines, Delta Airlines, Continental Airlines, Frontier Airlines, Hawaiian Airlines, Iberia airlines, Midwest airlines, Lanchile, United Airlines and Northwest airlines all having frequent flyer and miles programs that can be applied to car rentals as well, some of these airlines even consider national car rental miles, for air miles.

To add to their ever growing portfolio, the hotel group Coast Hotels has also made arrangements with them.

Even the famous Hilton Hotels have made arrangements exclusively for National car Rental customers plus American Express who will award points to its customers if they are registered with them.

Aside from all the discounts a features that you will acquire through their affiliates, National Car rentals offer a wide range of vehicles for you to choose from. The classes of cars that you could possibly rent form national cars are endless; the types of vehicles that you'll be able to rent are classified as subcompact, compact, intermediate, full-size, premium, luxury, sports utility, Mini van and convertible.

The Last Minute Specials offer is an unusual promotion because it changes from depot to depot across the country. Another of these is the Book Ahead Special which gives a discount for customers that book as early as possible online.
