Budget Enhances 'Unlimited' Incentive

LISLE, Ill. -- Budget Rent a Car enhanced its Unlimited Budget incentive for travel agents. Budget now will award points to enrolled agents for all eligible international business and leisure rentals completed by clients. In the past, only domestic business was rewarded under the program, which was launched last September. Furthermore, double points will be awarded for all completed transactions at participating Budget airport locations in Florida through Aug. 31, and at all of Budget's Hawaii locations through Oct. 31. Agents' points are deposited in their personal Unlimited Budget MasterCard card accounts, which were established earlier through an agreement with MasterCard and Carlson Marketing Group. Once 25 points are accumulated, enrolled agents receive their debit card with $25 deposited in the account. Deposits are made twice monthly, based on the accumulation of completed rentals, and a monthly statement is sent to the agent's home. Agents can purchase anything they wish with the debit card at any location where MasterCard is accepted. However, the card may not be used for cash advances. Enrollment forms are available from Budget's sales representatives or through the CRS using code ZD and the keyword Budget.
