National Car Rental, the award-winning rental car brand for business travel, is launching its annual One Two Free® promotion for registered Emerald Club members.

Renters receive one free rental day* for every two qualifying rentals** of a mid-sized or larger vehicle (for two or more consecutive days). This year National has increased the opportunities to earn promotional points by adding options such as a GPS or by renting through Emerald Club’s newly launched Priority Service in Mexico. Members can earn up to 50 free rental days by participating in the promotion, which begins today and includes an earning period through Jan. 31, 2015.

“This year’s ‘One Two Free’ promotion makes it easier than ever for Emerald Club members to earn free rental days,” said Rob Connors, assistant vice president of brand marketing for National. “National has added new rental and non-rental bonus-point activities to the program to offer our loyal customers more participation options.”

Each qualifying car rental completed during the “One Two Free” promotion is worth 300 points, with a free day awarded once an Emerald Club member earns 600 points. Additional bonus points can be earned through both rental and non-rental activities, including:
