National Car Rental will offer complimentary Emerald Club Lounges at select U.S. airports beginning in early November. Travelers who visit the lounges will receive free Wi-Fi, charging stations and access to tablets and televisions to check flight statuses and get the latest sports, weather and news updates.

The pop-up facilities, which will be open to all travelers, will launch in Boston (BOS), Chicago (ORD), Sacramento (SMF), St. Louis (STL) and Washington Dulles (IAD), remaining open until April 2017. Upon closure, the lounges will open at different airport locations for the summer 2017 season. The locations of the lounges were selected based on their percentage of passengers who travel for business.

Each lounge is featured post security in one terminal per airport. Lounges are open 24/7 with a National staff member on duty from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. weekdays. Also available to travelers in the lounge include information on the National app, National’s new TV commercials with Patrick Warburton and the opportunity to enroll in the Emerald Club.

The lounges are named after National’s award-winning Emerald Club loyalty program. The Emerald Club expedites the rental process by offering counter bypass opportunities as well as access to National’s “Emerald Aisle,” the company’s exclusive lot section where club members can select any vehicle, as long as they reserve a mid-sized car.
