Alamo and National Free 3 Day Car Rental

United Vacations is offering a great deal to those of you who are traveling to California this year. Throughout 2008, United is offering a free car rental through Alamo or National car rental companies. These deals are available for customers who purchase
a flight and hotel package to California for three nights or longer. Once you book the package, you’ll receive a free three-day Alamo or National economy rental car. If you want to upgrade to a different car class, you’ll receive a discounted price. So, you can either think of this as a good way to cash in all of those United Airlines frequent flyer miles OR you can book a business trip to the state and save a buck on renting a car. A good either way.

In addition, you can save $75 off the price of a California package with United Vacations’ Big City Sale by using the promotion code CITY at the time of booking.
