Vehicle Rental Procurement Category Market Research Report from IBISWorld has Been Updated

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 17, 2014

The market for rental vehicles has a buyer power score of 3.2 out of 5. This score is a reflection of reasonable pricing terms within the market, with buyers having a moderate amount of bargaining power in the negotiation process, according to IBISWorld business research analyst Daniel Krohn. A high level of market share concentration characterizes the market, with the top three companies generating over half of the revenue created. These rental vehicle agencies have significant pricing power in the market and generally dictate changes in the overall pricing of the market. Though they are generally price-makers, price hikes are kept in check because of the market-based pricing model used to determine prices. Price is the primary competitive factor in the rental market; consequently, agencies are restricted by how much they can increase prices without fear of losing customers. Suppliers are generally flexible with their prices as a result, foregoing higher profit margins in order to beat the competition and make the sale. Nevertheless, buyers should not expect to find huge discounts when negotiating contracts for rental vehicles.

Prices for vehicle rentals are expected to grow marginally over the three years to 2014 as a result of recovering demand for air travel. Vehicle rental agencies produce much of their revenue from domestic and international travelers, meaning that the vehicle rental market is particularly sensitive to changes in the airline travel industry. A recovering economy has increased overall air travel levels, facilitating demand for rental vehicles and placing upward pressure on prices. The economy is expected to grow at a faster rate over the next three years, reducing unemployment levels and increasing per capita income for most Americans. IBISWorld estimates that elevated consumer spending levels will have a flow-on effect into the travel and car rental markets, increasing price levels across the board, says Krohn. Buyers are encouraged to lock-in service contracts with vehicle rental agencies sooner rather than later. Major vendors include Hertz Global Holdings Inc., Enterprise Rent-A-Car Company and Avis Budget Group Inc.

Ariana Grande Tickets in New York, Philadelphia, Orlando, Fairfax, Worcester, Toronto, Uncasville, Detroit, Miami, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Atlanta On Sale Today

New York, NY (PRWEB) September 20, 2014

Ticket Down is a reputable source for discount Ariana Grande concert tickets for her 2015 Honeymoon Tour. This well-known ticket exchange is offering their customer appreciation promo code ARIANA-2015 for added savings.

In early 2015, fans will have a chance to see one of the biggest stars in the world across North America. Twenty-one-year-old Ariana Grande will hit the road in February 2015 on the Honeymoon Tour, which will take her to 25 cities across the United States and Canada. Grande, the singer behind the hit singles, Bang Bang, Break Free, and Problem will hit the road on the tour beginning on February 25th at the Independence Event Center in Kansas City, Mo., and will tour across North America until a stop in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada at the Pepsi Live at Rogers Arena.

Grande, who is just 21, recently released her second album, My Everything. The album opened at the top of the Billboard 200 chart and has also reached No. 1 in other countries including Australia, Canada, and Belgium. Since its release on August 22nd, it has already sold more than 200,000 copies. It became her second album to reach the top of the charts in the United States in a 365-day span. Her debut album, Yours Truly, has close to 500,000 copies sold. That album featured such singles as Right There, Baby, and her debut breakout single, The Way.

Until the release of Problem in 2014, The Way was her top-selling single with more than three million copies sold. When she released the single, Problem, with Iggy Azalea, it instantly became a hit and has sold more than four million copies in the United States, earning Platinum certification four times from the Recording Industry Association of America.

Grande is quickly becoming the latest superstar in a business full of larger than life characters. When she hits the road in February for the Honeymoon Tour, she will be continuing to see her stock rise in the music business after initially getting her break as an actress on Broadway in the show, 13, and then on Nickelodeon on the shows, Victorious and Sam & Cat.

Boycott Rush Limbaugh Sponsors Nationwide

The furor over Rush Limbaugh's slurs against private citizen Sandra Fluke has waned, but two groups continue to successfully keep the pressure on sponsors of the hate and lie filled rants of Limbaugh.
First, there's the Stop Rush Project. They are tracking sponsors of Rush and mobilizing volunteers to educate those sponsors about the hate and vitriol they are helping to put on Our Public Airwaves. 
Find them at .
And you can "Join the Fight to Flush Rush Limbaugh" on Facebook.  This is a great real time way to share information and mobilize.

How to Boycott Local Sponsors of Rush Limbaugh

Start by looking at the following clock.  (Click on it to enlarge.)  The green sections represent the minutes within the hour that belong to your local affiliate.

Now listen to the Rush Limbaugh show (it's hard, I know, but you only have to listen to the ads!)   Any commercial you hear in those time frames are from a business inside your own area.  Make a list of local advertisers;  post them on Facebook if you can and tell people to call and write them.

Then contact the businesses politely by mail and give them 48 hours to discontinue their advertising.  If they do not, get a group together and do one or all of the following:  1) Have many people call the businesses on the phone;  say you'll pull your business from them if they continue to support Rush 2) Do a letter writing campaign and deluge them with letters  2) conduct a campaign against them on Twitter and Facebook, 4) Stage a protest outside their businesses.  Be sure to invite your local TV stations and newspapers! 

Boycott Sponsors


What if a radio talker didn't like your politics, but instead of debating you, he just put your personal phone number out over the air so people could call and harass you?  Even threaten your life? 

That's exactly what Clear Channel "Conservative" talkers JOHN AND KEN did to California Dream Activist Jorge-Mario Cabrera.  He's received hundreds of hateful calls and death threats - all because some shock jocks are trying to jack up their ratings.

How is that in any way serving the public interest
?  Let us be clearm this is not protected speech under the first amendment;  this is akin to shouting "Fire" in a crowded theater.  And for all their apologies, John and Ken say they will give out private numbers... again.

So.  Watch the video and BOYCOTT SPONSORS . click here________________________________________________________________________

For Reference, one of the most potent ways of getting TV and Radio stations' attention is to boycott sponsors of offensive programs. Sometimes, just calling and complaining to sponsors is enough to get them to stop advertising on certain programs.  Sometimes a full boycott is necessary.

Here are some groups which have mounted effective campaigns against sponsors.   Learn from them!
Keep us informed of any media boycotts at , and we will help publicize your efforts.
