New Bonus Activities Help Emerald Club Members Earn More Free Rental Days*
TORONTO, Aug. 24, 2017 /CNW/ - National Car Rental today launches its annual "Rent Rent Reward" promotion to Canadians. Through its award-winning Emerald Club, National Car Rental offers registered members the opportunity to earn one free rental day* for every two qualifying rentals during the promotion. Each free day covers base rate (time and mileage) only. To further increase members' chances to earn free days, this year's promotion offers additional promotional points to members who complete any five bonus opportunities through "Rent Rent Reward" and to members when they complete their third qualifying rental during the promotion. Now in its 11th year, the "Rent Rent Reward" promotion kicks off today with an earning period through February 28, 2018, and a redemption period through June 15, 2018.
"Once again, we're proud to show our Emerald Club members our appreciation for their loyalty and support with our annual 'Rent Rent Reward' promotion," said Rob Connors, vice president of brand marketing for National. "For over a decade, we've offered this promotion with a focus on helping new and existing members earn more free rental days while providing them with premium service and a convenient, efficient car rental experience."
Registered members receive one free rental day* for every 600 points accrued through the promotion period, and every qualifying rental is worth 300 points. Additional bonus points can be earned through both rental and non-rental activities, including:
- Utilizing National's mobile app to book rentals while earning unlimited points (75 points per completed rental).
- Renting any size vehicle in Latin America and the Caribbean (one-time bonus of 300 points upon completion of a rental).

New this year, members can earn even more points by:
