ALAMO WINS REX AWARD AGAIN; ASTA TRAVEL AGENTS AGAIN CHOOSE ALAMO AS RENTAL CAR COMPANY PROVIDING BEST SERVICE TO AGENTS AND THEIR CLIENTS

 FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Alamo Rent A Car, the largest independently owned and operated car rental company in the U.S., received its second REX Award in a row at the Recognition of Excellence Awards ceremony held at the ASTA World Travel Congress in St. Louis.
 The REX Awards, sponsored annually by ASTA Agency Management magazine, are voted on by active members of the American Society of Travel Agents (ASTA) and presented in recognition of excellence and quality service in 10 travel supplier categories.
 "When you win the award once, everyone wonders if you can maintain the momentum," commented Alamo President Charles D. Platt. "But when you win for the second time in a row, it sends a message to the industry that a superior level of service to agencies and their customers is being delivered consistently and for the long term."
 According to Bonnie McElveen-Hunter, publisher of ASTA Agency Management, the results in the car rental category were extremely consistent with the 1992 survey. McElveen-Hunter cited Alamo for providing "the best overall service for both your travel agency and your clients."
 Alamo has a long history of loyalty to the travel agent community, and the company has taken a leadership role in speaking out against travel agent commission bypass. Alamo is the only car rental company with a policy of paying a minimum of 10 percent commission for all car rental bookings, every 10 days, and Alamo pays 15 percent commission on all luxury and specialty car bookings.
 Alamo currently serves over 10 million travelers a year through 109 high-volume locations in the United States, plus 28 international locations in the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Ireland and The Netherlands.
 Alamo was the first major car rental firm in the country to move to a logo-free fleet nationwide and to provide every renter with a Traveler's Safety Alert.
