ALAMO BECOMES ON-AIRPORT CONCESSIONAIRE AT SACRAMENTO AIRPORT; COMPANY NOW SERVES 54 U.S. AIRPORTS FROM IN-TERMINAL POSITIONS

 FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Feb. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Alamo Rent A Car, the nation's largest independently owned and operated car rental company, has recently moved on-airport in Sacramento Airport, serving the state capitol of California. With counter positions in the baggage claim areas of both terminals, Alamo now serves 54 U.S. airports from counter positions inside the airports.
 Alamo will staff rental counter positions in the baggage claim areas of the airport from 7 a.m. to midnight daily, while continuing to operate its existing Rental Plaza at 330 Richards Blvd. as a baseyard and fleet maintenance area.
 The move on-airport in Sacramento supports Alamo's effort to operate on-airport in commercial travel markets. According to Alamo President Charles D. Platt, "Alamo's strategy regarding commercial business is to operate from an on-airport position in those cities that are predominantly commercial travel destinations. As we continue to compete with the other major car rental companies, we are strategically moving to a counter in-terminal to serve the business traveler."
 For the last two years, Alamo has aggressively bid to move on- airport in predominantly business-travel markets, and today, more than half the company's 103 locations have counters in airport terminals. In January, Alamo moved on-airport in the world's largest car rental market, Los Angeles and Ontario International Airport.
 Alamo currently serves over 10 million travelers a year through 103 high-volume locations in the United States, and 19 in the United Kingdom and Switzerland. Alamo currently ranks fourth among U.S. car rental companies in terms of fleet size and annual revenue, with a model year peak fleet of 150,000 cars in 1992. Alamo's revenues for 1992 were in excess of $850 million, up from $740 million in 1991.
 Reservations for an Alamo car can be made through a travel agent, or by calling 800-327-9633, 24 hours daily.
