Thanks to everyone for participating in the National Car Rental Traveler Truth giveaway! You folks sure are wise. 🙂
As a reminder, up to January 31, 2013, National Car Rental has a One Two FREE promotion, where you get 1 free rental day after 2 paid rentals of 2 or more days each in a mid-size or larger car.
You can use these free days between September 10, 2012 and June 15, 2013. The free car-rental day can be used for a 1-way rental (where you pick up the car in one location, but drop it off at another location) as well, which could save you money because 1-way car rentals usually cost much more than regular car rentals.
And now, onto the winners!
1. Zach’s entry was selected by National Car Rental to be featured as one of the Top 10 Business Traveler Truths. Zach wrote:
If you don’t ask, you don’t get
Those who ask not, haveth not.
In life, you usually don’t get if you don’t ask, and traveling is no different. You’ll be amazed at what can happen if you politely ask for it!

You can save a lot of money by renting someones studio/condo with a kitchen and cooking a lot of your meals instead of staying at a hotel and eating out.
This is very true and is extremely convenient if you’re visiting a city for more than a few days and if you have family with you.
Emily and I rented a house for a week when we visited San Fransisco with her dad. We cooked our own meals and paid less than what we would if we had stayed in a hotel! And the house was more comfortable than a small hotel room.
3. Kim wins the $100 gift card. She wrote:
Never be without a bottle of water and a snack. There is nothing worse than that grouchy feeling I get when sitting on the plane before take-off knowing that there won’t be any offer of beverage for quite some time or rushing from one meeting to the next and starting to get hungry. I bring my own and know that I am covered!
Emily: This is so true! Daraius gets extremely moody & grumpy when he is hungry, so we carry almonds, water, and other snacks for him. It is much better for all of us when he is well fed. 🙂
I’ll contact the winners on how to claim your prize.
