Budget Increases Member Reward Credit Offer for Business Program

Budget Car Rental announced Aug. 13 that it has revamped its Budget Business Program to bring small and mid-sized businesses the opportunity to earn more rewards by offering members a $3 rental credit for each completed, fully paid rental day — a 50% increase in value.

"Delivering richer rewards is just another example of how we continuously strengthen our business programs," said Jeannine Haas, chief marketing officer, Avis Budget Group. "Budget Business Program members can continue to enjoy good value with low rates on a broad range of vehicles."

Budget Business Program rental certificates are distributed quarterly in increments of $15 certificates and customers can use up to seven certificates toward the rental of any size vehicle. Certificates are valid at participating Budget locations in the United States.

Enrollment in the Budget Business Program is free and open to companies that rent five or more times a year and spend $50,000 or less per year on car rental. Small and mid-sized businesses can also benefit from low rates, member discounts, dedicated account support specialists, unlimited mileage and no additional driver fees.

The program is open to drivers age 21 and over, and includes Fastbreak, the Budget express rental service that features paperless transactions and "Rapid Return" so that customers can return their cars and obtain receipts without visiting the counter.
