Budget Launches Program for Smaller Businesses

PARSIPPANY, N.J. -- Budget Rent A Car System has launched a program for small and mid-sized businesses that offers discounted rates and $2 back on every rental day.

Businesses that enroll in the program, Budget Business, automatically receive a rebate check with their monthly statement. Enrollment in the program is free and is open to companies that rent five or more times a year.

Small and mid-sized businesses can also benefit from an additional discount off Budget's lowest qualifying rates on all car classes, unlimited mileage and no additional driver fees. The program is open to drivers age 21 and over.

Program participants receive complimentary Fastbreak -- the Budget express rental service that features paperless transactions. They also qualify for complimentary Rapid Return, which allows customers to return their cars and obtain receipts without ever visiting the counter.

"Small and mid-sized businesses are always looking for ways to maximize their travel dollars," said Chuck Fallon, executive vice president of revenue generation for Cendant Car Rental Group, the parent company of Budget. "The new program makes renting with Budget more rewarding than ever."

The $2 cash back reward is available to U.S.-based businesses and is valid on rentals completed at all Budget corporate locations and participating licensee locations in the United States.
