Thanks to a new mobile application offered by National Car Rental, time-sensitive business travellers in Canada now have enhanced efficiency at their fingertips. The free app offers features designed to “provide speed, choice and control to frequent travellers who want to save time and be more productive on the road.” The app provides travellers with one point of contact to manage their rentals, with features that include:

!!! Rental Tracking — The app has the ability to track all of an Emerald Club member’s reservations and where a member is in the process of each rental. The app offers options to modify any feature, including car class, arrival time or day and payments, for both personal and corporate rentals. A snapshot of the most recent reservation or rental appears on the user’s home page. Members also can receive EmeraldAlerts — communications that include Arrival and Return Alerts, and Drop & Go service with convenient eReceipts — directly through the app.

!!! Emerald Club Profile Management — Emerald Club members can use the app to update their profile information, review reward status, book their free rental days, and access their virtual Emerald Club card. The app also offers push notifications to let members know if their payment or license information is out of date.

!!! Discounts — The app displays specials and discounts that can be booked through any mobile device.

!!! Rental Locator — Customers can locate each of National’s more than 300 North American rental car facilities and access operating hours, “click to call” contact information, and more details for each location.

!!! Roadside Assistance — National customers currently driving a National rental car can use the contact section of the app to directly reach Roadside Assistance.

Travellers can download the app, designed for use on both Apple and Android devices, by visiting iTunes or Google Play. The app is available in both English and French. (
