Alamo, National Upgrade Worldspan Connectivity

ATLANTA -- Worldspan announced that Alamo Rent A Car and National Car Rental have upgraded to Worldspan Car Source, the highest level of connectivity in the Worldspan global distribution system.

In Car Source, availability requests are routed directly to the car rental company's reservations system, providing Worldspan users with real-time availability, rates and rules in an interactive booking environment.

Car Source also provides information on one-way rates, corporate discounts, packages, promotions and special equipment, all with the initial request.

"Upgrading to Car Source strengthens our position not only among travel agencies, but also among Worldspan-powered leisure travel Web sites and in the corporate online channel -- key markets for Alamo and National, respectively," said William Lobeck, president and CEO of Vanguard Car Rental USA Inc., parent company of National and Alamo.
