UPDATE: RV Rental Company, Cruise America, to Offer Early Booking Discounts on All 2008 Motorhome Rentals

Customers Who Make an RV Rental Reservation This Fall For Travel Anytime in 2008 Can Choose From One of Three Discount Offers

MESA, AZ--(Marketwire - October 30, 2007) - Forward-thinking RV rental customers stand to save big on their 2008 motorhome reservations with Cruise America. Right now, the company is offering early booking discounts on all motorhome rentals scheduled for departure during 2008 -- regardless of location, destination or travel dates.

The early booking offer, which is available at all of Cruise America's 134 locations across the U.S. and Canada, allows renters to choose from three distinct discounts: a half-price mileage special, a double-time deal or a 20-percent discount. To receive the discount, reservations may be made online or over the phone.

The half-priced mileage special reduces the standard mileage rate of 32 cents per mile down to just 16 cents per mile. The double-time deal offers renters who pay for a seven-night rental up to an additional seven nights for free, while the 20-percent discount applies to standard rental fees. Only one early booking special is available per reservation, and this discount RV rental may be withdrawn at any time and cannot be combined with any other offer.

"We're encouraging all our RV rental customers to plan ahead for their vacations and take advantage of this special discount," says Mike Smalley, vice president of operations for Cruise America. "As the spring and summer seasons get closer, RV rentals at many popular vacation destinations are likely to be unavailable. By booking early, not only will our customers save money, but they'll also ensure the availability of their recreational vehicle."

All motorhome sizes are eligible for the discount, but reservations are subject to availability. Visit Cruise America's Web site for online RV reservations or call 1-800-671-8042 to book over the phone.

Cruise America's cabover motorhomes are available in compact, standard and large sizes, sleeping from four to seven people and offering a kitchen, bathroom and living area. Cruise America also offers compact travel trailers at locations across the U.S. and Canada, as well as refurbished used motorhomes for sale at 18 company stores in North America.

Founded in Florida in 1972 and now based in Mesa, Ariz., Cruise America is the largest RV rental and sales company in the U.S., employing around 300 full-time employees in the U.S. and Canada during peak seasons. Family-owned and operated, Cruise America was founded by Robert Smalley, Sr., and is now led by his sons, CEO Randall Smalley and President Robert Smalley, Jr. Visit Cruise America online for more information or to see the current inventory of used RVs for sale.
