Tulsa, Okla., October 25, 2005 - Thrifty Car Rental, a subsidiary of Dollar Thrifty Car Rental, Inc. (NYSE:DTG), is showing customers the sky's the limit with the launch  of a new sweepstakes on www.thrifty.com. From now through Dec. 1, 2005. Thrifty will award daily prizes of 75,000 miles- the equivalent of three round-trip domestic award travel tickets. It's all a part of an effort to drive traffic to Thrifty.com, the home of Thrifty Car Rental's best rates.

"Customers know our best rental rates are on Thrifty.com," said Brian Carpenter, Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Advertising. "Now we'll sweeten the deal for 48 lucky winners by awarding them with 75,000 Delta SkyMiles. Not only will we get them on the road, but we'll get them in the air. The great deals just keep on coming at Thrifty.com."

No purchase is required to enter the sweepstakes, but winners must be at least 21, a U.S. resident and have a valid U.S. driver's license.

To enter, visit www.thrifty.com and follow the sweepstakes entry instructions on the website. Winners of the 48 daily prizes will be randomly drawn from all entries received by 5pm CST that day. Non-winning entries remain eligible for future drawings. Entries are limited to one per person. Taxes and fees for award travel are the responsibility of the passenger and must be paid at the time the ticket is booked. Award travel seats are limited and may not be available on all flights or in all markets. All SkyMiles® program rules apply. To review the rules, please visit www.delta.com/skymiles. Additional details about the contest and sweepstakes rules are available online at www.thrifty.com .

Thrifty Car Rental is the first in the car rental industry to launch a "Best Rate Guarantee" for reservations made on thrifty.com. The company guarantees the lowest published online rate for Thrifty Car Rental can only be found on Thrifty.com. If customers find a better Thrifty rate anywhere else on the web, the company will match the rate plus take an additional 10 percent discount off.
