Tulsa, Oklahoma, February 28, 2005: Dollar Thrifty Europe Ltd, which is part of one of the world's major car rental companies, will centralize its UK headquarters at new, larger offices at Cambridge House, Euston Road, London NW1. It will relocate staff from its two current locations in Windsor and the City of London, with effect from 11 March 2005.

Said Yves Boyer, Executive Vice President, Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group, Inc.: "As part of the Company's growth strategy for the UK it has been recognized that a single, central London location will have considerable benefits for our staff, the travel trade and the UK leisure and business traveler. It will provide the necessary platform from which to offer a superb value-orientated level of service and to grow our share of the outbound UK leisure and corporate car rental market."

"We are delighted that the majority of our experienced team is moving with us to Cambridge House, seeing this as a positive journey which will enable Dollar Thrifty to maintain its excellent service levels and to continue to offer highly competitive pricing and 'Value Every Time'."

"It is however regretful that Marc Thornton, Dollar Thrifty Europe's Director of UK and European Sales, will not continue in his role for reasons of personal practicality. We would like to take this opportunity publicly to thank Marc for his invaluable contribution to the Company's UK and European achievements and wish him every future success. We are actively seeking his successor, who will be announced in due course."
