We launched Zalyn back in Spring of 2012 to make it easy for travelers to save money on rental cars with relevant discount coupons. Today, we're pleased to announce the launch of our latest and greatest version to date (cleverly named Zalyn 2.0) & some of the cool new features we've added.
Rental cars with coupons to go along
Zalyn can now show you real-time pricing and availability for rental cars around the world. Wait, why exactly is this groundbreaking? Don't a gazillion other travel websites do exactly the same thing.
That's right, but we go a step further and show you coupons that each rental car qualifies for. You can also see how many coupons were analyzed, number of matches found, chances that the coupon will work and how much you can potentially save. Ready to use one of the coupons? Simply select the coupon and hit Book, and you'll be on your way to book the rental car with the discount coupon. Its never been easier.
Private Discount Codes
While there's no dearth of publicly available coupons (we've seen thousands over the years with hundreds active at any give time), there are times when you want to try one of your own to see how it stacks up against others. This could be a corporate rate code for your small business or an employee discount offered by your employer in partnership with a rental car company or a discount offered to participants of a conference, meeting or event that you're attending. You can now add these discount codes to your private coupon stash right on the search results page. Simply hit the green + next to the Book button and fill out the details. Your private coupon will now show up with the other discount coupons and is ready for use (see detailed instructions).
Stack Multiple Discount Codes
You know what's better than a discount? TWO discounts! Some rental car companies allow you to combine discount codes and save even more. For example, Hertz allows you to combine a CDP code with a coupon code and enjoy two discounts. Alamo, Avis, Budget & National also play game.
You can combine a coupon that only has a rate code (also known as AWD, BCD, CDP, Contract ID, etc) with another coupon that doesn't have a rate code, but has a coupon code (thankfully known as coupon code universally). The resulting stack is made up of a rate code and a coupon code.
Now stacking discount codes is a great way to save even more, but its not something the average leisure traveler knows about. We're trying to make sure you don't miss out on any such opportunity, so every time you use a discount coupon, we ask you if it worked or not and how much you saved. If you say it worked, we check other discount coupons that've worked to see if we can combine them to create a stack. When a match is found, the coupon stack will show up with the other discount coupons and is ready for use. Enjoy the savings!
We would love for you to try the new Zalyn for one of your upcoming rentals. Let us know how it goes. We look forward to hearing from you.
