Unlimited Budget, Avis Budget Group's loyalty program for business travelers, has been named a 2014 Gold Magellan Award Winner by Travel Weekly.

Chosen by a panel of travel experts, the awards honor the best in the travel industry. Unlimited Budget was recognized in the ground transportation/loyalty program category, says the company.

"Travel professionals play a vital role in shaping the customer's experience, so it's important that we reward them for being champions of our brands," said Tom Villani, Avis Budget Group’s vice president, global travel and partnerships. "We are proud to achieve gold at the Magellan Awards and sincerely thank Travel Weekly and the travel agent community for this honor."

Unlimited Budget members earn valuable rewards on all completed Avis and Budget business and leisure car rental transactions in North America, says the company. Members also earn rewards for completed bookings through the family of Hilton hotel brands worldwide, including Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Hilton Hotels & Resorts and Doubletree by Hilton.

On a monthly basis, dollar rewards are loaded onto an Unlimited Budget prepaid debit card that agents can use to make purchases anywhere the card is accepted.
