ALAMO EXPANDS ON-AIRPORT PRESENCE IN FIVE KEY BUSINESS DESTINATIONS; NOW HALF OF ALAMO'S LOCATIONS ARE ON-AIRPORT TARGETING U.S. CORPORATE MARKET
 FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., July 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Alamo Rent A Car, the nation's largest independently owned and operated car rental company, has added in-terminal positions in five U.S. airports, increasing to more than 50 percent its on-airport locations in the United States. Alamo has begun operations in Knoxville on-airport, has moved on-airport in Birmingham, El Paso, and San Jose, and will soon move on-airport in Albany, N.Y., bringing the total of on-airport locations to 50. Alamo now serves more than half of its 96 airport-primary locations from a counter position in the airport facility. An additional seven Alamo locations are operated in downtown or satellite locations.
 The new in-terminal locations represent Alamo's aggressive effort to increase its share of the commercial travel market, and are a significant departure from Alamo's early years as solely an off-airport, leisure car rental company. According to Alamo Senior Vice President Philip S. Shailer, "Alamo has been strategically moving on-airport in predominantly business destinations for the last several years because the key to continued growth in corporate markets is having an on-airport car rental counter."
 Alamo continues to add new corporate accounts, serving as a primary or secondary car rental vendor. Shailer added, "As we expand our presence in business travel airports across the country, Alamo is gaining recognition as a viable player in corporate travel. This gives us an opportunity to compete head-to-head with the so-called 'Big Four' operators in the area of service as well as price in many major business travel cities."
 Since 1984, Alamo has offered a unique corporate rate program to business travelers, with savings of as much as 40 percent off of competitors' rates in some of the nation's most highly traveled business cities. Alamo offers uniform, nationwide corporate rates, such as $37.00 per day for a midsize car, like the Chevy Corsica; a full-size car, such as a Buick Regal, for $39.00 per day; and a Cadillac at $44.00 per day. Other rates on other car models are also available, and corporate rates in Florida are slightly lower.
 Alamo's corporate rate program features $3,000 maximum personal responsibility for rental car damage, loss or theft; no surcharge for additional drivers, or drivers under age 25; Alamo Express rental service and Alamo Express return; frequent flyer benefits with Alaska, Delta, and United Airlines; no city surcharges; and unconditional, unlimited free mileage with every rental.
 To reserve an Alamo car, contact a professional travel agent, or 800-GO-ALAMO.
