Avis Budget Offers Visa Checkout for Online Payments

Avis Budget Group has announced the availability of Visa Checkout as a payment option for Avis Car Rental and Budget Car Rental customers.

Travelers can now pay for rentals in advance with the Visa payment service when making reservations on Avis.com and Budget.com as well as the Avis and Budget mobile applications.

Customers need to click the Visa Checkout logo, sign into their account, and pay for their car rental reservation with their stored method of payment.

“Customers are increasingly adopting different payments options as evidenced by Visa Checkout’s more than 17 million consumer accounts,” said Scott Deaver, executive vice president and chief marketing officer, Avis Budget Group. “We’re excited to work with Visa and offer Avis and Budget customers another streamlined and convenient way to pay — and save when renting from our trusted brands.”

“We’re thrilled to add Avis and Budget as Visa Checkout merchants and help put customers in the driver's seat,” said Chris Curtin, chief brand and innovation marketing officer, Visa.
