Tulsa, Oklahoma, August 18, 2005: Effective immediately, Dollar Rent A Car, a subsidiary of Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group, Inc. (NYSE:DTG), has introduced a new and improved way for frequent travelers to rent DOLLAR® vehicles.

From reservations to pick up and return, the DOLLAR Express Rental Program is the fastest and most convenient way to rent vehicles at more than 250 DOLLAR U.S. locations.

Express service includes prepared rental agreements in advance, complete with credit card authorization, vehicle assignment and a separate, fully-staffed line for priority service. Other key program features include free membership, quick enrollment, easy reservations, 60-second express rental services, rapid returns, online rental history and agreements, as well as superior support services.

“Dollar extends the services of the DOLLAR Express Service Program to frequent renters who value time and expediency,” said Brian Carpenter, Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Advertising. “Using DOLLAR Express, renters will experience first-class counter service and top-notch treatment. Dollar is committed to providing quick reservation, rental and return services to all program members.”

Using their profile, DOLLAR Express members can make reservations on dollar.com. Upon arrival, members simply proceed to the Express Members line where their personal profile and rental information is quickly printed, sending them on their way immediately. When returning a rental vehicle, Express members will be greeted by an agent in the parking lot. A hand-held computer will print a receipt at the car and get members to their next destination promptly.

Frequent flyers may earn mileage points for rentals with any one of Dollar’s travel partners. For a complete list, log on to dollar.com.
