Avis Budget Group Partners with Regus for Business Travelers

Avis Budget Group teamed up with Regus to provide business travelers with deals on car rentals and access to thousands of Regus professional lounges across the world.

Under the new multi-year agreement, Avis Budget Group will offer its Budget Business Program, the company’s car rental program for small- to mid-size businesses, and promote the Avis Corporate Awards to Regus customers. In turn, if members enroll in the Avis Preferred and Budget Fastbreak express rental program, they will receive free Regus Businessworld Gold membership for unlimited access to Regus’ 1,200 business lounges around the world.

Members will also receive discounts on meeting rooms, virtual office programs and fully-equipped offices.

“The majority of our customers travel for business,” said Michael Haas, director of partnerships at Regus. “Regus’ rapidly expanding network of locations helps businesses and individuals work more efficiently, anywhere at any time. By teaming up with Avis Budget Group, we immediately reduce major challenges that professionals face when on the road, by providing easy and quick access to transportation as well a professional place to conduct business.”

With business travel expecting to increase throughout 2012 — according to a survey by Deloitte — both companies hope to satisfy the needs of business travelers with an on-the-go work environment.

“The new agreement with Regus illustrates our commitment to expand travel partnerships to attract car rental demand on a global basis,” said Stephen Wright, vice president of global travel and partnerships for Avis Budget Group. “The partnership will enhance customer loyalty for our respective businesses while making business travel easier for Avis, Budget and Regus customers.”
