Avis Launches New Vehicle Selection Service for Avis Preferred Members

Avis Car Rental introduced on June 4 Avis Preferred Select & Go, a vehicle selection service that gives members of Avis Preferred — the company's express rental program — three new options for service.

Beginning this summer, Avis Preferred members can:

  • Keep and drive away in their pre-assigned rental vehicle
  • Exchange their car, at no additional charge, by selecting another one from the designated area
  • Upgrade their vehicle for an additional charge by choosing a specialty car or SUV from the designated area.

With the new Select & Go service, customers drive their selected vehicle to the exit gate, present a valid driver's license to the Avis representative and the rental check-out process is completed. Avis Preferred Select & Go will be available at 50 airport locations in the United States and Canada by the end of 2012.

"With Avis Preferred Select & Go our frequent renters are empowered to select the vehicle that best fits their needs or occasion — whether by make and model, color or size — and the rental process is faster than ever," said Gina Bruzzichesi, senior VP, customer experience, Avis Budget Group.
