Avis Car Rental and Pebble Beach Resorts have entered a multi-year agreement making Avis the official car rental partner of the resort.

Under the new agreement, Avis will have opportunities to promote the brand, its products, services and special offers to resort guests. It will also be featured on the Pebble Beach Resorts website, in guest newsletters and other collateral material, and on-site at the resort.

Also part of the partnership, Lexus vehicles will be available for rent at Avis locations at San Francisco International Airport, Mineta San Jose International Airport and Monterey Regional Airport. Pebble Beach Resorts guests can choose from the 2015 Lexus ES 350 sedan as well as SUVs like the RX 350, GX 460 and LX 570.

Pebble Beach Resorts is located on the Monterey Peninsula in California and is considered the No. 1 Public Golf Course in America by Golf Digest since 2003. In 2019, it will serve as the site of the U.S. Open.

"Pebble Beach Resorts is highly regarded by golfers and guests alike," said Tom Villani, vice president of global travel and partnerships, Avis Budget Group. "This partnership will help us attract new customers from this highly desirable market segment."
