Avis Car Rental Offers Discounts to Travelers Combining Leisure with Business Trips

Avis Car Rental announced on July 27 that it is providing promotional rates and discounts for travelers planning a "Bizcation," the combination of a business trip and a vacation.

Travelers who wish to extend a business trip to enjoy the leisure benefits of their destination will receive one free weekend day with at least a three-day Avis rental, which includes a Saturday night keep.

The offer is valid on any car in Avis' Economy through Premium car groups.

The “Bizcation” promotion was created by Avis in response to recent studies that covered the growing trend of travelers incorporating leisure into their business trips.

According to an Orbitz for Business/Business Traveler Magazine Trend Report, 72% of business travelers indicated that they have extended a business trip with a leisure component and 81% were considering it. In addition, 43% recently had a spouse, significant other or friend accompany them on a business trip.

“We are committed to providing business travelers with services and solutions that matter most to them,” said Jeannine Haas, chief marketing officer of Avis Budget Group. “The Avis Bizcation helps travelers get more out of their travel experiences and spend more time with family and friends.”
