Thrifty Eliminates Travel Agency Commissions

22nd Apr 2002

Thrifty Car Rental has announced it would eliminate base
commissions paid to travel agencies on individually-negotiated corporate and
government rate programs effective April 22, 2002.

The change does not affect commissions paid on leisure, association, or
other non-negotiated corporate rentals. Thrifty will maintain current
commission levels with contracted agencies on both the government and
corporate rates.

The commission change applies to agencies worldwide for customers traveling
in the U.S. or Canada. Travel agents in Canada and the U.S. who book
customers on outbound rentals with negotiated fees will not be paid

According to the company, the elimination of this commission category is
necessary to retain its competitive posture within the car rental industry.
