Minneapolis, MN--(Marketwire - October 6, 2008) - With the Greater Houston area still reeling from the damage caused by Hurricane Ike, Advantage Rent A Car has launched two hurricane relief car rental programs featuring special low rates aimed at helping area residents, travelers and relief workers travel in and out of the Houston metropolitan area.
"Advantage is Texas born, and we care about our coastal neighbors, especially those affected by the recent hurricane," said Denny Hecker, Chairman at Advantage. "We've moved cars into Houston to help. Choose any car, from economy through minivan size classes, and you'll pay the same low rate, regardless of the vehicle you choose. We're also offering special low weekly rates, because at this time, getting around should be the least of your worries."
Now through October 31, 2008, customers can choose between two car rental programs that best suit their transportation needs. Advantage is offering a "Take Your Pick" program that allows customers to pick the rental car they need, ranging from economy cars through full size and minivans for only $15 per day on weekends and $25 per day on weekdays.
Another Advantage car rental program being offered to the Greater Houston area is great value on one-way rentals originating from George Bush International Airport to any Advantage location in or outside the state of Texas. Car rentals for economy cars through full size and minivans are $30 daily/$150 weekly for all Texas destinations, and $60 daily/$240 weekly for all designated cities outside of Texas.
