Avis Budget’s Loyalty Program Wins Travel Award

Avis Budget Group has announced that Unlimited Rewards, its loyalty program for travel professionals, was named a 2015 Gold Magellan Award winner by Travel Weekly.

Winners are chosen by a panel of travel experts. Unlimited Rewards was recognized in the ground transportation/marketing category; it also won gold at the Magellan Awards in 2014 and 2013.

"Our commitment to ‘putting the customer first' includes travel professionals because of the important role they play in shaping the customer's experience,” said Tom Villani, vice president, global travel and partnerships, Avis Budget Group. “Our Unlimited Rewards program is our token of appreciation for their business and continued loyalty. We are proud to earn gold at the Magellan Awards once again. We thank Travel Weekly and all those who voted for us for the recognition."

Earlier this year, Avis Budget Group refreshed its travel agent program and renamed it from Unlimited Budget.

Unlimited Rewards members earn rewards on Avis and Budget business and leisure car rental transactions in North America, Latin America, the Caribbean, Australia and New Zealand. Members also earn rewards for bookings through the Carey International portfolio of transportation services, including Carey and Embarque, as well as Hilton Worldwide hotel brands and properties around the globe, according to the company.

Enrollment in Unlimited Rewards is free and open to travel professionals who are residents of the United States and Canada. For more information, visit www.unlimited-rewards.com.
