Avis Adds Three States to Car Sales Program

Avis Budget Group Inc. has announced that its consumer car sales program is now available in Massachusetts, Ohio and Tennessee.

In collaboration with AutoNation Inc., an automotive retailer, this car sales program offers a no-haggle, no-hassle process with a selection of late-model Avis and Budget rental vehicles for purchase.

Customers can shop online at www.avis.com or www.budget.com and schedule their "ultimate test drive" to drive a vehicle of their choice, according to Avis Budget. The ultimate test drives are free-of-charge for two hours or can be as long as three days for a nominal rental fee.
If the customer decides to purchase the vehicle, the base rental fee will be refunded after the purchase is completed through AutoNation Direct, says Avis Budget.

"The warmer weather makes spring a great time to test drive and purchase a vehicle," said Tom Gartland, president, North America, Avis Budget Group. "We're happy to roll out our consumer sales program to Massachusetts, Ohio and Tennessee and give residents there a new option for test-driving and purchasing our quality, well-maintained vehicles."

The car sales program is also available in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey and Texas. It features more than 75 vehicle makes and models, ranging from Ford and General Motors to Kia, BMW and Toyota.
