New York, NY 08-01-2001 -- Cendant Corporation (NYSE: CD) today reiterated
that it expects its acquisition of Galileo International, Inc. (NYSE: GLC)
to be completed in the third quarter of 2001 as previously announced.

Cendant's Chairman, President and CEO, Henry R. Silverman stated: "The
transaction has cleared the U.S. regulatory process and we are confident we
can respond promptly to any European Commission (EC) inquiries.
Furthermore, we expect that any investigation by the Justice Department
will have no impact on the timing of the Galileo transaction. Lastly, in
response to competitor concerns, we continue to emphasize that we will not
bias Galileo, or utilize information obtained through ownership of a GDS,
to favor any Cendant brand."

According to the Company, the EC requested information pertaining to the
relationship between Cendant's Avis unit and Avis Europe plc (London: AVE),
a separate, independently-owned company. Cendant expects the EC to declare
the notification to it complete when that information is furnished within
the next few days. The one-month review period by the EC is also expected
to be reinstated at that time.
