April 30th Marks Deadline for Entering ‘Alamo.com Family Vacation Sweepstakes;’ Consumers Can Still Register to Win Final 100 Trips

Alamo.com Best Rate Guarantee Will Continue to Be a Win for Every Customer Long After Sweepstakes Ends

TULSA, Okla., April 13 /PRNewswire/ — April 30th marks the deadline for entering Alamo Rent A Car’s “Alamo.com Family Vacation Sweepstakes,” promoting its “Best Rate Always” guarantee for reservations made online at Alamo.com . While 200 of the 300 trips to Walt Disney World(R) Resort or Disneyland(R) Resort have already been awarded since the sweepstakes began in early February, consumers still have time to register for the final 100 trips to be given away once the sweepstakes entry deadline has passed.

“We expected the Alamo.com Family Vacation Sweepstakes to generate substantial traffic to our web site, and it has clearly done so. With 100 trips yet to be awarded, we expect that trend to continue,” said Vice President of Marketing, John MacDonald.

MacDonald said the sweepstakes also has generated significant awareness about Alamo’s best rate guarantee, which he describes as a win for every Alamo customer: “It’s a benefit our customers can and do expect year-round. Alamo customers want the best value and the best rate possible on their Alamo rental car, and when they book through Alamo.com, that’s exactly what they’ll get, guaranteed,” he said.

Alamo backs their best rate guarantee with an additional 10% discount, should a customer find a lower Alamo rate for the same pick-up location, reservation dates, times and car type.

Customers can enter the “Alamo.com Family Vacation Sweepstakes” online at Alamo.com and also earn four additional entries with each qualified rental with Alamo through April 30, 2005. Each of the 100 remaining packages is for four people, and includes airfare, Disney theme park passes, an Alamo rental car and hotel accommodations at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel or Disneyland Resort hotel for five days and four nights. Customers who have already entered since the sweepstake’s inception will automatically be entered into the final drawing. Plus, everyone can improve their chances of winning by continuing to earn additional entries with each qualified rental.

Sweepstakes winners bound for Disneyland and Walt Disney World are in for a real treat and a bash extraordinaire. Disney’s “Happiest Celebration on Earth” celebrates 50 years of Magic at Disney Parks and Resorts which all began with Disneyland in 1955. The “Happiest Celebration on Earth” begins May 5, 2005 and is so huge it runs 18 months, all the way through 2006, and brings exciting new attractions and events to Disney Parks worldwide.

MacDonald said the milestone Disney year makes the sweepstakes’ destinations even more exciting. “When it comes to the ultimate family vacation, Disneyland and Walt Disney World consistently rank among the most popular destinations of choice,” he said. “It’s a perfect match for Alamo, since we are ‘the official rental car of the American vacation’ and ‘the official rental car company of Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort.’”
