Orlando, FL, October 12, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- It is always important to give every customer a choice when making a car rental reservation online. E-Z Rent-A-Car also now will be catering to those who do not have specific needs in terms of a car rental class. The XCAR (X as in a variable in basic Algebra) car class has launched online at www.ezrac.com for E-Z Rent-A-Car's Orlando Airport market and Denver, CO.
The XCAR will give those renters who do not have a specific need a discounted rate for taking any rental car class that meets a certain threshold. E-Z Rent-A-Car's XCAR means that the renter will receive a vehicle that has at least 5 seatbelts (and therefore fits 5 persons) and can hold 2 pieces of large luggage. So, if someone makes a reservation online for an XCAR, that renter could receive a Midsize car, like a VW Jetta, or an Sports Utility vehicle, like a Ford Escape.
How is the specific make / model chosen once the renter arrives at the rental counter at the Orlando Airport? It largely depends on what the car rental manager at the location determines that he/she has a large quantity for that day / week. So, it comes as a surprise to the renter which car rental class he/she will receive. But, the biggest upside to this program is that the renter will receive a discount on the rental.
Look for this program to expand to other car rental locations in the United States soon.
