                       Galileo Conference Call Script
                             Henry R. Silverman

         Operator: Good day, everyone, and welcome to today's Cendant
         Corporation conference call. Today's conference is being recorded.
         At this time, for opening remarks and introductions, I 'd like to
         turn the conference over to Mr. Sam Levenson, Senior Vice
         President of Corporate and Investor Relations. Please go ahead,

         Samuel Levenson: Thank you, _____. Good afternoon, everyone, and
         welcome to Cendant's conference call and Webcast.

         Before I turn the call over to our Chairman, I would like to
         remind everyone of three things. First, the rebroadcast,
         reproduction, or retransmission of this conference call and
         Webcast without the expressed written consent of Cendant

         Statements about future results made in this release constitute
         forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Private
         Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements are
         based on current expectations and the current economic

         under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

         The following conference call is being filed pursuant to Rule 425
         under the Securities Act of 1933 and is deemed filed pursuant to
         Rule 14a-12 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

         And now I would like to turn the call over to Cendant's Chairman,
         President, and Chief Executive Officer, Henry Silverman.

         Henry Silverman: Thank you, Sam, and good afternoon, everyone.
         With me here today, in addition to Sam Levenson, are our Chief
         Strategic Officer, Sam Katz; our Chief Financial Officer, Kevin
         Sheehan; and Denise Gillen of our Investor Relations department.

         I am pleased to announce Cendant's agreement to acquire Galileo
         for $33 per share, and that United Airlines, the largest
         stockholder of Galileo, with approximately 18% of the outstanding
         shares, has entered into an agreement with Cendant to support the
         transaction and has provided Cendant with a proxy to vote the
         Galileo shares owned by United in favor of the transaction.

         I should mention that we expect to complete the transaction in the
         fall of 2001 and that the closing is subject to customary
         regulatory approval.

         I'll describe why we believe this transaction will benefit our
         shareholders and those Galileo shareholders who will become
         Cendant shareholders.

         Galileo is a leading Global Distribution System, or GDS. Galileo's
         computerized reservation systems connect 43,000 travel agency
         locations worldwide and millions of corporate and individual
         customers to 500 airlines, 45,000 hotel properties and hundreds of
         car rental companies, tour operators and cruise lines. Galileo is
         the largest traditional model GDS in the Middle East and Africa,
         the second-largest GDS in North America, the second-largest GDS in
         Europe, and the largest GDS in the Asia-Pacific region.

         Galileo is an attractive acquisition for Cendant because it meets
         our four corporate objectives. First, it significantly expands our
         presence in the travel sector, an area of strategic focus for us.
         Second, its business model, like ours, is based on recurring
         fee-for-service revenues. Third, it leverages a core
         competency--our ability to accelerate unit growth by providing
         value-added services to current and prospective customers of all
         sizes. And, fourth, the acquisition is very accretive to our
         earnings and cash flow.

         Expanded Travel Presence
         With the addition of Galileo, Cendant will have a comprehensive
         travel platform, generating transaction fees on all major
         components of travel spending, including the largest component,
         air travel. We'll have a much larger footprint within the global
         travel industry and generate more of our revenues and profits from
         faster-growing international travel markets. International air
         traffic has grown at nearly double the rate of domestic air
         traffic over the last five years. In addition, the acquisition
         will diversify Cendant's travel revenues geographically without
         adding any currency risk, since over 60% of Galileo's revenues
         come from outside the U.S. but are paid in U.S. dollars.

         We'll be able to capitalize on the growth in online travel
         bookings by combining Cendant's travel portal strategy with
         Galileo's software development capabilities and URL, And
         we will bring additional volume to Galileo through Cendant's
         existing membership travel businesses. All of this not only makes
         Galileo an excellent strategic fit with Cendant today; it also
         positions us to pursue additional growth opportunities in the
         consolidating travel industry.

         Complementary Business Model
         Galileo's business model is highly complementary to Cendant's
         fee-for-service template. When a consumer books a trip through a
         travel agent, her corporate travel department, or on the Web, she
         accesses the information through a GDS and makes an airline, car
         rental, or hotel reservation. The GDS is paid a flat fee,
         typically about $4 per booking by the travel supplier such as
         Ramada, United Airlines or Avis. Galileo serves as the bridge
         between travel providers and travel agencies, corporate travel
         departments and consumers. In the process, it earns a modest fee
         on approximately 350 million B2B2C transactions totaling $80
         billion dollars of travel purchases. Obviously, this model is very
         similar to Cendant's.

         Building on Core Competencies
         We also know that Galileo's relationships with travel agencies are
         structured as long-term contracts and provide predictable and
         recurring revenue streams. That also sounds a lot like Cendant to
         us. One of Cendant's core competencies is unit growth of customer
         systems by providing value-added services to businesses of all
         sizes over an extended period of time. We do this every day with
         hotel owners, timeshare developers, real estate brokers, tax
         preparation franchisees, community banks and credit unions. With
         Galileo, we can enhance its current commitments to work with
         travel agencies and their corporate clients by establishing and
         enhancing mutually beneficial relationships.

         For example, Cendant will offer our proprietary Preferred Alliance
         services to Galileo's existing 43,000 travel agency customers.
         Galileo will also have access to the customer relationships forged
         by Cendant's sales force of more than 700 persons who currently
         sell car rental, fleet management, mortgage and relocation
         services directly to the Fortune 1000. Now Cendant's sales force
         can offer travel services with our agency partners as well.

         Highly Accretive Transaction
         With Galileo operating squarely in the very center of the travel
         sector, emulating our fee-for-service business model and building
         on our core competencies, we certainly view the acquisition as
         strategic. Let's talk about its financial impact.

         The acquisition is immediately accretive to our earnings and cash
         flow, adding $0.10 to $0.14 cents per share to earnings and $350
         to $400 million to cash flow in 2002. The exact results will
         depend upon the number of shares issued, the closing date of the
         acquisition and the timing of achieving certain synergies we've
         identified. Included in the projected accretion is about $70
         million to $80 million of merger synergies in 2002, primarily from
         the utilization of Galileo's GDS by Cendant's travel agencies and
         Web sites, the reduction of certain duplicative information
         technology spending and lower general and administrative expenses.
         The synergies are expected to grow to over $100 million in 2003.

         Having said all that, we are not naive about the challenges to the
         GDS industry generally and to Galileo specifically. I want to
         assure you, as I assured our Board, that our due diligence process
         in this transaction was our most intense ever. We conducted a "no
         stones unturned" due diligence investigation and utilized numerous
         strategic, industry and technology consultants, our auditors,
         legal counsel and bankers, as well as over 40 people in eleven
         distinct disciplines within Cendant operating management. Keep in
         mind that Galileo operates in the travel distribution space, a
         core competency area for Cendant where our combined management
         expertise or "domain knowledge" represents several hundred years
         of experience. It's worth spending a few minutes on our findings.

1.       Traditional model GDS's maintain vast IT infrastructures, capable
         of processing huge transaction volumes--almost [one million per
         day or one thousand every minute] in Galileo's case--reliably and
         economically, in spite of their core technology having been in
         existence for many years. We believe it is unlikely that new
         competitors entering the travel distribution space would attempt
         to duplicate the current infrastructure of traditional model
         GDS's. As in many of our businesses, we are aware of the risk of
         disintermediation. However, we believe that the demonstrated
         success of the traditional GDS's ensures that GDS companies will
         play an important role in the growing Internet travel space--if
         they can supply technology and distribution services that are
         reliable and cost-effective. For example, Travelocity and Expedia
         are both powered by a traditional model GDS.

2.       Like our real estate business, where FSBO's (for sale by owners),
         have historically represented 20 percent of all home sales, a
         similar percentage of consumers have historically gone and will
         continue to go directly to the supplier. As a major supplier of
         travel services, we see that every day. Interestingly, telephone
         bookings are down each year as on-line bookings increase. Consumer
         direct is clearly preferred by the suppliers, who are looking to
         reduce distribution costs, but consumers still want a choice--not
         just American's flights to Chicago, for example, and the GDS can
         offer that. And consumers typically want one stop shopping versus
         visiting multiple sites or calling multiple vendors to book each
         component of their trip, which again GDS's can offer.

3.       As a supplier, we see the clear trend to more on-line
         agencies--like our travel portal. The competitive position of each
         GDS over time will be driven by its skill in serving the on-line
         segment. This is much more relevant in the U.S., than in the rest
         of the world, where on-line travel planning is just beginning to
         take off primarily through the Web sites of traditional agencies
         and suppliers. Galileo is not a leader in the online space, and we
         need to change that--we think our experience and our investments
         in building our travel Web sites and travel portal give us a
         competitive leg up. We think our development and subsequent sale
         of to for more than 10x our investment
         demonstrate this skill set.

4.       Galileo has lost momentum in the U.S. due to a sales force
         transition in 1999 and the Internet challenge I just mentioned.
         Fortunately, the U.S. sales force issue--whereby Galileo had no
         sales force for almost 14 months--is behind Galileo, and we think
         we can address the Internet issue. Unit growth and a more focused
         competitor characterizes every business we have purchased since
         the inception of HFS in 1990.

5.       We believe a bigger piece of a bigger pie--and the travel pie is
         growing bigger for the reasons I discussed a few minutes ago--will
         offset any decline in margins over time. We are keenly aware of
         the focus of suppliers on lowering their distribution costs--a
         trend that has been ongoing for several years. The GDS industry is
         positioned to partner with suppliers to address this issue. The
         GDS fee per round trip airline ticket is less than $10, compared
         to a ticket cost of hundreds or even thousands of dollars. Our
         focus will be to add value to both our suppliers and agency
         customers to ensure the success of both in maximizing their
         profits. For example, greater use of direct connections from
         suppliers to the corporate customers of our travel agency partners
         can provide Galileo the same margin opportunity because these
         connections have lower costs associated with them. Even the
         supplier direct channel is an opportunity as evidenced by Galileo
         powering the very successful site.

6.       By utilizing our capital, we can also facilitate the expansion of
         our travel agency customers who are participating in a
         consolidating industry, and who can convert acquired agencies to
         Galileo's GDS. This is exactly the model we have used in our other
         businesses, particularly real estate through NRT, and may provide
         similar cash on cash returns. Remember, the suppliers, not the
         agencies, pay the GDS, which allows us to realize very attractive
         returns without an undue financial burden on the agency

         To summarize our findings, we think there are clearly challenges,
         but challenges also represent opportunities. We believe many of
         these issues are company-specific, not industry-specific. Perhaps
         proof of this is that the market is valuing Galileo at less than
         half the multiple of Amadeus or that of Sabre excluding

         As we said in our press release, in the spirit of maintaining the
         highest levels of service to Galileo's customers, during the
         period prior to closing both Companies will be working together to
         assure a seamless integration of Galileo into Cendant. We do not
         anticipate changes in Galileo's operational management or a
         reduction in the employee base that would impact service to

         However, as we also stated in the release, we are going to bring
         in a new CEO, similar to when we brought Bob Pittman into Century
         21 to change the paradigm of that company, who together with a
         number of current Cendant managers will augment the Galileo senior
         management. We have a long history of revitalizing companies and
         we're confident we can do it again.

         I'm sure you recall the old HFS formula: First, buy a business
         perceived as under-performing. In year one we take the costs out
         and begin the unit growth that provides a revenue spike in year
         two. By year three, we're growing off a much higher base,
         augmented by tuck-in acquisitions added to this strategic
         platform. A few examples are Century 21, RCI, Avis and PHH. Our
         annual cash on cash returns from these transactions today is in
         excess of 30%. Within a few years, we believe the travel services
         space, including Galileo, can provide similar results. Remember,
         the upside here is not what Galileo brings to Cendant, but what
         Cendant can bring to the table to accelerate Galileo's revenues
         and profits.

         With that, we would be happy to take your questions.

         Operator:  This concludes today's conference call.  We thank you for
         joining us.  You may now disconnect.
