Avis Budget Group has expanded its consumer car sales program to Minnesota and Washington. The program offers late-model Avis and Budget rental vehicles for purchase.

With the expansion of Avis Budget Group’s consumer car sales program, residents of North Carolina and South Carolina can now test-drive and purchase late-model Avis and Budget vehicles at competitive prices.

In collaboration with Innovative Funding Services, Avis Budget’s consumer car sales program offers buyers a no-haggle, no-hassle process with a selection of late-model Avis and Budget rental vehicles for purchase.

Customers can shop online at www.avis.com or www.budget.com and schedule their “ultimate test drive” to drive a vehicle of their choice, according to the company. The ultimate test drives are free-of-charge for two hours or can be as long as three days for a nominal rental fee.

If the customer decides to purchase the vehicle, the base rental fee will be refunded after the purchase is completed, according to Avis Budget.

"Avis and Budget customers know that we offer quality, well-maintained vehicles and that's exactly what we provide those individuals who are looking to purchase pre-owned cars," said Joe Ferraro, president, Americas, Avis Budget Group. "We invite consumers in North and South Carolina to check out the vehicles we have to offer and the benefits that our program provides."

The car sales program is also available in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Washington. It features more than 100 vehicle makes and models, ranging from Ford to General Motors to Nissan, BMW and Toyota.
