Dad was brave enough to embarrass himself by sharing his top 5 travel mistakes and the lessons he has learned from them. Dad said it best, sometimes mistakes are the best way to learn a lesson and unveil a truth that can help us on our future journeys. I’m sure many readers can relate to some of the lessons he has learned and have also learned a truth or two while traveling.
In the spirit of traveling truths, Just Another Points Traveler and National Car Rental’s Emerald Club have teamed up to compile a list of the Top 10 Business Traveler Truths learned while being on the road.
As you might know, every year National Car Rental gives travelers the opportunity to earn free rentals with a program called ONE TWO FREE. When renters rent twice, they get a third rental free. It’s as easy as 1, 2, free! To celebrate the return of this popular promotion, National Car Rental is giving travelers a real chance to share their travel experience, and become part of the National brand forever.
We’re asking readers to share a ‘rule of the road’ for traveling on business, or otherwise. We will work together to select the best (1) truth, and the participant who submitted the chosen bit will win an awesome Traveler Truth Prize Pack.
SO what’s in the prize pack, you ask? It looks pretty spiffy to me, and it’s valued at $499.98. National Car Rental’s Traveler Truth Prize Pack contains:
- Swiss Army WT Wheeled Tote
- Swiss Army WT Deluxe Garment Sleeve
- One (1) $100 AMEX Gift Card
From there, the winning fact will be compiled into the greater Top 10 Business Traveler Truths, and will be featured on the National Facebook page to be shared far and wide to business travelers across the country.
ONE TWO FREE Promotion details: Register to start earning one Free Rental Day with every two qualifying rentals of two or more days between August 20, 2012 and January 31, 2013. Earn as many Free Days as you can and then use them anytime between September 10, 2012 and June 15, 2013.
In addition to the contest for the top traveling truth, all participants of the conversation who register for the ONE TWO FREE promotion and share it on Facebook or Twitter will automatically receive one free rental credit towards the promotion, essentially making the program: rent one, get one rental free.
If you’re not yet a member of Emerald Club (National’s loyalty program) you can join immediately, at no cost, to get the credit.
Here’s how you can ensure you get a free rental credit for participating:
