National Car Rental Partners with Southwest Airlines

Southwest Airlines added National Car Rental as a new partner of the carrier's frequent flyer program, Rapid Rewards, according to a company announcement on Aug. 23.

Members of Rapid Rewards will receive 600 points per qualifying rental from National.

To celebrate the new partnership, now through Nov. 15, 2012, members can receive triple points and save up to 25% on any qualifying rental of three days or more on after entering their Rapid Rewards number and the Contract ID 5030346.

“This new partnership with National Car Rental is a great enhancement to our Rapid Rewards program,” said Southwest's Director of Rapid Rewards Jonathan Clarkson. “This is yet another way we can provide our members with opportunities to earn Rapid Rewards Points throughout the entirety of their travel experience.”
