National Car Rental offers airport lounge access

Travel News 15 Nov 2016

National Car Rental will offer complimentary Emerald Club Lounges at select US airports.

Travellers who visit an Emerald Club lounge can enjoy free Wi-Fi, charging stations and access to tablets and TVs to check flight status and get the latest sports, weather and news updates.

Open to all travellers, the pop-up facilities launch next week in Boston, Chicago, Sacramento, St. Louis and Washington Dulles and will remain until April 2017.

Then they will travel to new airport locations in summer 2017.

All airport locations were selected based on the percentage of passengers who travel for business.

National named the lounges after its award-winning Emerald Club loyalty program – which expedites the rental process by offering counter bypass as well as access to National’s Emerald Aisle, an exclusive section of the lot where members can select any vehicle as long as they reserve a mid-sized car.

Each lounge is featured post security in one terminal per airport and is open 24/7 with a National staff member on duty from 07:00-19:00, Monday through Friday.
