Web Site Enhancements

4th Mar 2002

Thrifty Car Rental celebrates the recent re-launch of its web site as “the place to check first for the best Thrifty
rental rates” by giving away 92 weeks of free car rentals.

From March 1 - May 31, 2002, customers who visit can sign up for
a chance to win one of 92 free week-long rentals in the U.S. (up to a
minivan). Winners will be randomly drawn daily from among those who enroll
in the sweepstakes. To enter, visit and follow the Sweepstakes
entry instructions on the home page of the site.

“Due to the significant enhancements we`ve made to the site, we
want customers to discover firsthand how easy it is to use,” said Brian
Carpenter, Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Advertising for Thrifty
Car Rental. “Ideally, we want everyone`s first thought to be ``
when shopping for car rental rates.”

As part of the recent enhancement, has improved the
accessibility and ease-of-use of the reservations functionality of the site.
An on-line chat feature has also been added, allowing customers the
opportunity to talk by phone or via a live chat session with a reservations
agent if they have questions or require additional assistance.

No purchase is necessary to participate. One winner will be selected at
random each day beginning March 1 through May 31, 2002 from all eligible
entries received by 5 p.m. (CT) that day. Each daily winner will receive one
free week of car rental in the U.S. (economy, compact, midsize, full size or
minivan). All taxes, fuel, insurance and other incidental charges are the
winner`s responsibility. The sweepstakes is open to U.S. residents, 21 years
or older, with a valid U.S. driver`s license. Only one entry per person and
