National Car Rental isn’t usually a program that we hear about too often, except for this time of year when they come out with their famous “One Two Free” promotion (registration required). As far as rental car promotions go, this one is one of the better ones that exists. They had the same promo a year ago and it’s as lucrative now as it was back then.
You will earn a free rental day for every two qualifying rentals, with “qualifying rentals” being defined as a mid-size or larger vehicle rented for two days or more. The promotion period runs through January, giving you nearly five months to earn free rental days. If you rent cars regularly, it absolutely makes sense to switch to National for this promotion in my opinion.
The promotion works on a points-based system. Every qualifying rental earns 300 points, and 600 points gets you a free rental. In addition to qualifying rentals, there are several other ways you can earn points. For example, renting a car in Latin America or Europe earns 300 points. Renting through the mobile app earns 75 points. There are several other ways to earn points as well (including referrals), all listed on the registration page.
The folks at National were kind enough to arrange a small giveaway for Travel Summary readers. The winner will get 300 points towards the One Two Free promotion, which is a nice way to get you rolling!
All you have to do is comment on this post telling me where you would use a free car rental with National and why you’re traveling to that location.
The terms and conditions are basically this: One entry per person (multiple entries by the same person will be disqualified), and all entries must be submitted by 10PM PST 8/25/15. I get to pick the winner and whatever I say goes. With that being said, I will pick the winner at random as long as you follow the simple instructions I mentioned above!
I will contact the winner directly on 8/26/15 via email. The winner will need to provide their Emerald Club number, email address, and name. If I don’t receive a response by 8/27/15 I will choose another winner.
Good luck and happy travels!
