Avis On Location Corporate Car Rental Programme

Avis On Location Corporate Car Rental Programme

Avis Rent A Car has introduced ‘Avis On Location’ to provide corporate clients with on-site vehicle rentals in the USA and Canada. Based on radio frequency identification (RFID) technology and pilot tests conducted with several major corporate customers, Avis On Location enables the company to rent vehicles and accept returns on corporate campuses and at virtually any location.

Avis On Location is designed to serve the hourly, daily and one-way rental needs of commercial accounts and is integrated with clients’ corporate travel rental car programme and Avis Preferred, the Avis counter-bypass programme. Business travellers simply use their smart-phones to reserve, pick up and return rental vehicles and an electronic receipt is automatically issued when the rental is completed.

“Whether it’s to support environmental programmes that encourage employees to use mass transportation or to enhance employee safety and productivity, many companies are looking to have rental vehicles available within their campus facilities,” said Tom Gartland, Executive Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Customer Care for Avis Budget Group, parent company of Avis. “This RFID-based platform that we have developed represents the most scalable, flexible and customer-friendly solution ever offered.”

Avis On Location is available to serve commercial accounts in the USA and Canada. The programme is free to join and vehicles can be picked up immediately after enrollment. No membership card is needed. The programme is available on all car classes and vehicles are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Avis expects to expand Avis On Location into selected corporate-campus locations over the coming months, place additional cars in local market settings and consider other sites into which it may deploy this technology to make rentals available.
