 According to the Travel Industry Association of America, domestic travel this summer will increase 4 percent over 1992.

Prices start at $45.99 per day.
 Vacationers looking for affordable elegance will appreciate the increased number and availability of Alamo's luxury cars, including safety features such as power door locks and windows, anti-lock brakes, and driver side air bags, as well as air conditioning, power steering, cruise control and AM/FM cassette, all standard. Prices for luxury cars, including Cadillacs, start at $39 per day as part of Alamo's "Great American Rates" program.
 "Alamo has always responded to the needs of vacationers, and adding more of the types of vehicles consumers want when traveling reinforces our commitment to provide consumers with the high-value car rentals they expect and deserve," said Bob Coffey, vice president market research. "As with all of Alamo's rentals, these mini-vans and luxury cars include unlimited free mileage in every city, every day with no exceptions."
