Thrifty Car Rental offers extra rewards for travel agents

Over the past several years, many travel agents have felt their business decline as an increasing number of travelers take their business to the internet and book directly online. Thrifty Car Rental, however, is not offering new benefits and incentives to those registered travel agents who can go the extra mile and attract more clients to book cars through them. Whenever a travel agent books a car with Thrifty for a customer, the vehicle rental firm will offer triple the number of reward points he/she would normally receive for arranging a booking.

Thrifty’s reward system is called “Look to Book” and normally, a travel agent who brings a new client to Thrifty would receive five points for each dollar spent on the basic fee, as well as on extra mileage. Now, however, travel agents may look forward to fifteen points per dollar. These points may then be cashed in to purchase a number of consumer items and services, such as appliances, furniture, books, CDs and even airline tickets.

The current reward scheme is applicable for all cars booked in either Canada or the

United States and travel agents must also be residents of one of these countries. Additionally, the car rental must be made for a period of at least three days and some economy vehicles do not qualify, with the exception of compact cars. This promotion ends on 15 October 2007. In order to benefit from the rewards, travel agents must be accredited by the IATA and must also register with the website.
