Avis Introduces $25 Special Rate for Weekend Days

Avis Rent A Car has introduced special rates on compact cars: $25 for weekend days and $169 for weekly rentals. The special rates are good at participating locations through June 25, 2001.

Avis is promoting the rates through a limited-run cable TV ad campaign that asserts: "In an economy that's not trying very hard, Avis is trying harder."

Customers are advised to request the "Just Rent" offer when they book their car rental.
