"This award in particular is a huge honor because we take great pride in our Gold Plus Rewards free loyalty program to give our customers the most valued car rental experience possible," commented Mark P.

"The COLLOQUY Loyalty Awards confer the highest honor on companies that are unwavering in their efforts to put the customer at the center of all efforts," said COLLOQUY Editor-at-Large Dennis Armbruster. "The innovations on display in these winning programs, operated by these industry leaders, provide ample proof that the future of loyalty marketing is in good hands."
