Hotels.com Offers Gasoline Rebate

Hotels.com, announced today it is offering its
customers a gasoline rebate to help take the sting out of rising gasoline
prices. The national average for gasoline prices has been on the rise in
recent weeks and is hitting all-time highs topping more than $2.00 per
gallon in some cities across the country. Travelers booking accommodations
for three nights or more will receive up to $30 back from Hotels.com.

‘Many more people travel by car, truck and motorcycle than by any other
mode of transportation. This gasoline rebate fits into our philosophy of
providing consumers with the most value for their travel dollars, whether
it be by offering the lowest hotel rate guarantee or by helping reduce
overall travel expenditures,” stated Cheryl Rosner, president of
Hotels.com. “Additionally, the launch of our new product Road Trips now
offers travelers local drive destinations providing information and
booking capabilities up to six hours of their homes enabling them to take
a trip on just one tank of gas.”

Travelers will find a “Gasoline Rebate” icon on the Hotels.com after
clicking the deals and specials tab on the homepage providing them with
details of the promotion. To qualify for the rebate travelers must book
accommodations now through May 11, 2004 for three nights or more at any of
the more than 400 markets worldwide serviced by Hotels.com for stays
through August 31, 2004. Upon completion of their trip, travelers simply
need to mail in a copy of their gasoline receipt along with the rebate
certificate they find online; Hotels.com will then credit their charge
card for the amount spent on gas up to $30. See the hotels.com web site
for full details.
