AARP Services and Alamo Rent A Car announced a preferred provider relationship allowing AARP’s 38 million members to receive up to a 25 percent discount on car rental rates valid at every location in the Alamo network. Additional member benefits such as special insurance coverage for both the driver and one free companion driver are included in the already low members’ only price.

"We welcome the opportunity to introduce the Alamo benefit to our members. AARP members are active travelers and greatly value the travel discounts they receive through membership," said Dawn Sweeney, president and CEO of AARP Services.

"AARP membership represents a large and important customer group. We welcome the opportunity to serve AARP members with great value and savings whenever they rent with Alamo," said Jerry Dow, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of Alamo.
