NATIONAL GOES EXTRA MILES -- DOUBLE AND TRIPLE BONUS MILES AVAILABLE THROUGH TRAVEL PARTNER PROGRAM

 MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Now frequent travelers and renters can double their pleasure and their frequent flyer miles with National Car Rental's new double/triple mileage program.
 Participants in the frequent travel programs of Continental Airlines, USAir, United Airlines, and Northwest Airlines, will receive double miles on weekend rate rentals, and triple miles on weekly rate rentals, now through Nov. 30, 1993, at National locations throughout the United States.
 "Frequent flyers are National's core group of customers and what better way to reward them for their loyalty on their leisure rentals than by giving them something meaningful such as airline miles toward future travel," said Geoff Corbett, National's executive vice president of marketing and sales. "Of course we also see this as another opportunity to bring new customers to National."
 Customers who rent with National in conjunction with qualifying airline flights automatically earn more mileage. For example, renters flying Continental normally get 750 OnePass miles every time they rent from National in conjunction with a qualifying Continental Airlines flight. Under the double/triple bonus miles program, they will receive 1,500 OnePass miles for every weekend rate rental, and 2,250 OnePass miles for every weekly rental.
 Under United Airlines' travel program, customers who normally receive 500 for each rental will now receive 1,000 Mileage Plus miles for weekends and 1,500 miles for weekly rentals. Frequent travelers of USAir will double their regular 500 miles on weekends and triple on the weekly rentals, and Northwest WorldPerks members receive the same benefits with 1,000 on the weekend rate and 1,500 on the weekly rate.
 "Members of our partners' frequent flyer programs already enjoy special car rental rates for business, and discounts on weekly and weekend leisure rates from National," Corbett said.
 National will also reward frequent travelers who stay at Hilton Hotels with a similar program. Whenever customers rent with National in conjunction with a stay at HHonors Hilton, they receive 250 partner bonus points just by showing their rental agreements at check-ins.
 National Interrent features General Motors vehicles, and services over 5,000 locations in 130 countries worldwide with system members Tilden Interrent, Europcar Interrent and Nippon Interrent.
