NATIONAL ANNOUNCES NEW TRAVEL AGENT SWEEPSTAKES; BOOKINGS EARN AGENTS CHANCES AT DISNEY TRIPS VIA 'ALL BUSINESS ON LEISURE SWEEPSTAKES'
MINNEAPOLIS, May 26 /PRNewswire/ -- National Car Rental System, Inc./Interrent, will launch a new travel agent sweepstakes capitalizing on its exclusive position as the official car rental company of Walt Disney World and Disneyland. Beginning June 15 travel agents who book National for domestic travel, can earn a chance to visit Walt Disney World, and a grand prize opportunity to vacation at Euro Disney Resort in Paris. "This is a terrific way for the travel agent community to earn incremental commissions on leisure bookings in addition to the commissions they already earn from National on business rentals," said Geoff Corbett, National's executive vice president of sales and marketing. "By teaming up with the world leader in leisure and vacation travel for this great promotion, we're also able to emphasize our valuable relationship with Disney," he said. "We feel we're able to add to the excitement, and enhance the chance of winning by having a drawing every week." Between June 15 and Sept. 27, 1993, each booking that results in a consummated weekly or weekend rental will be placed in a weekly prize drawing for a 5-day, 4-night Walt Disney World package. A winner will be chosen each week for 15 weeks for round trip coach airfare for two, a room at the Disney Resort hotel, five days use of a National car, and two 4-day world passports to the Magic Kingdom, EPCOT Center and the Disney-MGM Studio Theme Park. Also included in the package are two tickets to Pleasure Island (adult only), two admission tickets to Typhoon Lagoon, and meal coupons valid at various Walt Disney World Resort locations. All travel must be completed by Sept. 30, 1994. There will also be a grand prize where winners will receive a four- night, five-day vacation for two to Euro Disney Resort in Paris, including two round trip coach airfares, hotel, two length of stay admission tickets to Euro Disneyland, and the use of a Europcar Interrent car, National's European affiliate, and the official car rental company of Euro Disney Resort. "The grand prize of a holiday at Euro Disney Resort complete with a car from our partner Europcar Interrent also reminds people of the global benefits available by renting with National," Corbett said. To enter the sweepstakes, travel agents need only use the "ZL" code and write their names in the SI field each time they book a leisure weekly rental (five or more consecutive days), or a leisure weekend rental (Thursday noon to Sunday, 2 p.m.). Once the transaction is consummated, agents will automatically be entered into the sweepstakes. Bookings qualify seven days a week, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. CDT. Travel agents may also enter the sweepstakes by submitting their names, and complete addresses on 3x5 cards and mailing to National, P.O. Box 82070, St. Paul, Minn., 55182. The sweepstakes is only open to U.S. residents who are travel agents. National features General Motors vehicles, and services over 5,000 locations in 130 countries worldwide with system members Tilden Interrent, Europcar Interrent and Nippon Interrent. -0- 5/26/93 /CONTACT: Michael J.
