Avis Budget Launches Group Car Rental Service

Avis Budget Group, Inc. recently announced the launch of a new private-label car rental booking engine tailored for Groople, the online group travel booking resource, PRNewswire reports.

This booking engine–the first of its kind developed, hosted and maintained by a car rental company for a group travel agency–provides a side-by-side comparison of Avis and Budget car rental offerings.

This service could be helpful for groups such as families and friends attending a wedding, reunion or other getaway, students traveling on school trips, sports teams traveling to games or competitions and business travelers attending meetings and conferences.

According to PRNewswire, serving groups of five or more, Groople will now offer customers access to group rates on multiple car rentals and the ease of booking all their travel plans in one simple click. For example, customers can view options specific to their arrival location, time and vehicle preferences and can reserve cars for their special event.

Groups can also mix and match vehicle types and brands to meet the individual needs of each renter in the group.
