National Launches Rental App for Canadian Travelers

National Car Rental has released a free app for Canadian travelers with features designed to provide speed, choice and control.

“Frequent business travelers depend on National to provide the smoothest transaction of their travel day,” said Rob Connors, assistant vice president of marketing for National Car Rental. “With that in mind, we have designed our app to make the rental experience even faster, more convenient and more streamlined, particularly for our valued Emerald Club members.”

According to National, features include:

  • Rental tracking: The app has the ability to track an Emerald Club member’s reservations and where a member is in the process of each rental. The app offers options to modify any feature, including car class, arrival time or day and payments, for both personal and corporate rentals.
  • Emerald Club profile management: Emerald Club members can use the app to update their profile information, review reward status, book their free rental days and access their virtual Emerald Club card.
  • Rental locator: Customers can locate each of National’s more than 300 U.S. rental car facilities and access operating hours and contact information.
  • Roadside assistance: Customers currently driving a National rental car can use the contact section of the app to directly reach Roadside Assistance.

“We carefully researched the important tools today’s business travelers need, so we could tailor our app specifically to those needs,” said Rob Connors, who leads National’s brand marketing efforts. “We know from serving today’s business pros that efficiency is their top priority, and National’s Emerald Exchange Community was able to help us address that priority and more by offering invaluable, real-time insights into the minds of actual business travelers.”

Available in English and French, travelers can download the app — designed for use on both Apple and Android devices — through iTunes or Google Play, says National.
