 GTE CREDIT CARD PHONE INTRODUCED INTO DOLLAR RENT A CAR FLEET
 HOUSTON, Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- GTE Credit Card Phone, in participation with Nationwide Installation Services, today announced the introduction of GTE's CCP 2000 cellular credit card phone in Dollar Rent A Car vehicles in Chicago.
 By installing the credit card phones, Dollar's rental car customers can now request a car with a phone and pay only for the calls they make or receive. In addition to placing calls, the phone allows customers to transmit data via portable fax machines and laptop computers.
 According to Richard Razee, vice president-operations for Dollar Rent A Car, "Providing cellular phones is part of our commitment to satisfying the growing needs of many customers to be accessible while traveling."
 Customers use the phones by passing a major credit card through a compact card reader on the phone. The GTE Credit Card Phone accepts the AT&T Calling Card, MasterCard, VISA, American Express and Diner's Club.
 According to Tom Henninger, president of Nationwide Installation Services, which is installing the phones in Dollar's fleet: "The GTE Credit Card Phone provides car rental customers with state-of-the-art service. Customers can access the service in the Chicago area and 'roam' on cellular networks outside of Chicago. With on-hook dialing and speakerphone capability, the phones are convenient and easy for customers to use."
 GTE credit card phones are available throughout the U.S. and Canada in rental cars, limousines, taxis, buses, ships and remote areas with limited landline telephone service.
 GTE Credit Card Phone is a part of GTE Mobile Communications, headquartered in Atlanta. GTE Mobile Communications provides support services to both GTE cellular companies: GTE Mobilnet and Contel Cellular Inc. (NASDAQ: CCXLA).
 GTE (NYSE: GTE) is the fourth-largest publicly-owned telecommunications company in the world. With approximately $20 billion in revenues in 1991, GTE is the largest U.S.-based local-telephone company and the second-largest cellular-service provider in the U.S.
 Dollar Rent A Car maintains 526 locations nationwide for business and leisure rentals.
 Nationwide Installation Services, a subsidiary of Custom Car Installation Corporation, provides cellular installation and maintenance services throughout the U.S.
