Announcing Advantage Rent-A-Car Now Operating at PIT


PITTSBURGH, PA (July 10, 2008)—The Allegheny County Airport Authority announces that Advantage Rent A Car has recently opened for business at Pittsburgh International Airport, offering travelers even more rental car options.

Advantage Rent A Car offers a full range of vehicles, with terrific specials featured throughout the year.

“We offer very competitive rates and travelers like to see a new face at the airport,” said Derek M. Brown, Director of Marketing.

Another major benefit for commuters is the option to rent a one-way vehicle to and from Johnstown, Ebensburg and Bedford, PA, which are all destinations that recently lost air service. An Advantage Rent A Car franchise operated by the same owner, Bob Gardill, is also located in Johnstown.

“This is an important service that Advantage is offering to these communities. It is vital to provide convenient and competitive transportation options to these important regions of Pennsylvania,” stated Bradley D. Penrod, Executive Director/CEO, Allegheny County Airport Authority.

The Advantage Rent A Car shares a booth with Pittsburgh Airport Valet Parking and is located in the rental car return area in the bottom level of the Short Term Parking Garage, only a few steps away from the Pittsburgh International Airport Terminal. Advantage and the valet parking service also have the same owner.

“Whenever a customer picks up their car, we pull it up for them, just like we do at valet parking,” said Brown.

Because it shares a booth with the valet parking service, which is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, customers can rent a car from Advantage at all hours of the day. All airport parking is patrolled by the Allegheny County Police. Valet customers are also offered additional services, such as wash, detail and oil change, that can be done while they travel.

“If someone needs to rent a car at 2:30 in the morning, we’re the only place where they can do that,” said Brown.

Advantage Rent A Car is a privately held rental car company, headquartered in San Antonio, Texas. It is a proven service-focused company that provides business, leisure, government and local customers with a wide range of services at more than 150 U.S. locations and 130 locations in 33 countries internationally.
