  TravelCenters of America Introduces ‘Diesel Dollars’ Rewards Program

           UltraONE® Owner Operators Can Save Big on Fuel Purchases

Business Wire

WESTLAKE, Ohio -- March 27, 2014

TravelCenters of America LLC (TravelCenters), operator of the TA® and Petro
Stopping Centers® travel center brands, has introduced its “Diesel Dollars”
rewards program.

The amount of Diesel Dollars earned is based on the total gallons of diesel
fuel purchased at TA and Petro Stopping Centers locations at the posted cash
or credit retail price in any calendar month at any TA or Petro truck fuel
island for as long as the program lasts. For each purchase to qualify, drivers
must swipe or present their UltraONE® Rewards card at the time of purchase.
The more gallons a driver purchases in a particular calendar month, the higher
their Diesel Dollars rewards. Reward levels are:

  *500-999 gallons in one calendar month = 20 Diesel Dollars
  *1,000-1499 gallons in one calendar month = 45 Diesel Dollars
  *1,500 gallons or more in one calendar month = 85 Diesel Dollars

If a driver were to earn the maximum award every month for a year, his or her
savings would top over $1,000. Diesel Dollars is an added benefit for UltraONE
Members, who will still receive all of their familiar UltraONE program
benefits -- including Points and shower credits -- that have made the UltraONE
loyalty program the preferred program in the industry by truck drivers.

“We are always looking for ways to make the lives of our professional driver
customers a little better,” said Tom O’Brien, President and CEO of
TravelCenters. “The Diesel Dollars program gives drivers the opportunity for
increased earnings power on their fuel purchases, helping them to keep more
money in their pocket,” he continued.

All Diesel Dollars earned in a calendar month are awarded on the first day of
the next subsequent month. Diesel Dollars redemption certificates issued can
be used toward the purchase (1 Diesel Dollar = $1) of diesel fuel, and are
valid for sixty (60) days from the date they are awarded. Customers can print
their Diesel Dollars certificates at any UltraONE kiosk located at all TA and
Petro locations. Diesel Dollars are subject to the UltraONE Diesel Dollar
Promotion complete rules and the UltraONE Driver Rewards Club Program official
rules available at www.ultraonerewards.com.

The UltraONE Driver Rewards Program launched in 2010, and is the premier
professional driver rewards program offering the most rewards in the industry.
UltraONE is the only driver loyalty program where points never expire with
active membership. Professional drivers earn UltraONE Points by swiping their
member card at all TA and Petro locations for purchases of diesel fuel, truck
repairs and identified promotional items. Points can be redeemed in TA and
Petro travel stores, truck service facilities and restaurants. More details
can be found at www.ultraonerewards.com.

UltraONE is free to join and includes other benefits at TA and Petro Stopping
Centers locations:

  *Complimentary shower credits with minimum fuel and truck service
    purchases;
  *Member Pricing discounts in the travel stores;
  *Frequency-based restaurant, beverage and repair rewards;
  *Monthly special offer coupons;
  *Free access to StayFit fitness rooms;
  *Easy access via the UltraONE kiosk or the TA/Petro TruckSmart® app to
    reserve and schedule a shower; reserve a parking space with the TA/Petro
    Reserve-It™ parking program; and purchase WiFi time with UltraONE Points;
  *Access to account information, including fuel purchase transaction history
    (available at the UltraONE kiosk, online, and on the TruckSmart app).

In the most recent ‘Voted Best’ professional driver survey, drivers preferred
TA and Petro 5 to 1 in the ‘Best Truck Stop Experience’ category. These
results are based on an independent TA/Petro survey of Overdrive magazine
readers. The ratios depict professional driver preference for TA and Petro
versus the next closest truck stop brand.
