Avis Budget Marks 100 Million Rental Days

For the first time in its history, Avis Budget Group Inc. has reached 100 million rental days in North America over the last 12 months. The milestone consists of rentals generated over the past 365 days across the Avis, Budget and Payless brands, including Budget Truck Rental.

To mark the occasion, Avis is giving away 100 free weekend rental certificates to 100 customers, says the company.

For a chance to win, Avis has invited customers to share photos of the people and places that inspire or drive them, as well as why they would like to connect with that special person (e.g., a relative, family friend, etc.) or place.

Over the next 100 days, Avis will select one winner each day to receive a free weekend rental certificate so the winner can connect with their special person or place.

"We celebrate the 100 million rental day milestone as it is a testament to our hard work to drive sustained profitable growth and to serve our customers' needs," said Ronald L. Nelson, chairman and chief executive officer, Avis Budget Group. "Business and leisure travelers rely on us to connect them with what is important to them, and we are honored by their confidence in our ability to deliver quality, value and reliability."
