Car hire is more than just about cars - lifestyle, events, travel and the world’s best road trips – life’s too short to allow travelling to only be a dream. Leading global car rental brand, Avis, provides the key to unlocking amazing experiences and opportunities to travel the world, with a choice of around 5,500 rental locations in 170 countries around the world.
Renting a car for a holiday brings freedom to explore, to go where you want to go at your own pace, without the restrictions of timetables, transfers, delays or hanging around. These days, it is easy to drive abroad as many of the cars are fitted with satellite navigation systems.
Avis is supportive of the travel trade and simple booking tools are available. We have partnerships across many travel sectors, including numerous airlines, hotels, tour operators and travel agencies. As an added bonus, customers who are members of our partners’ frequent traveller programmes (All Nippon Airways, American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Japan Airlines, Korean Air, Malaysian Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Thai Airways, Hilton Hotels, Hyatt Hotels; just to name a few) can earn miles when they rent Avis cars.
We want to make sure that the car rental experience is hassle and stress-free and the Avis Preferred scheme, available in Europe and the USA, does just that and gives members access to priority service. Benefits like a fast-track service at the counter, exclusive access to the newest cars, pre-prepared rental paperwork, cars parked in the most convenient spaces in the car park, keys and paperwork waiting for the customer in the rental car at selected locations and free upgrades when available.
What about the future of car rental? Avis has just published a White Paper on the Evolution of the Connected Car; a very interesting reading predicting how connected car technology is set to transform the car rental industry.
Next month, join us as we embark on a road trip celebrating the arrival of Spring in Europe, America and here in Asia! We’ll go on a journey, taking the time to admire the colourful Spring flowers and enjoy the longer days and warmer weather – maybe even hire a convertible car! Watch this space!
Avis will be exhibiting at Travel Revolution, taking place at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Singapore from 24 to 26 February 2017. Come visit us at our stand – Level 1, Hall A, D27 – we’d love to meet you there!
