TULSA, OKLAHOMA, February 14, 2001: Dollar Rent A Car, a subsidiary of Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group, Inc. (NYSE:DTG), today announced it fully supports increased nationwide car rental rates. Dollar's response was made in reaction to an announcement made yesterday by ANC Rental Corporation.

"We strongly support an increase in car rental rates on a nationwide basis," Gary Paxton, Dollar Rent A Car President said. "With operating costs and certain economic factors impacting the car rental industry, we would certainly benefit from a more disciplined pricing environment. This is particularly important and timely as we enter what is typically a period of strong consumer demand."
