Avis and Chase Announce Exclusive Partnership to Benefit Small Business Customers

Avis Rent A Car and Ink from Chase, the business card portfolio from Chase Card Services — a division of JPMorgan Chase & Co., announced on Oct. 19 an exclusive multi-year agreement to offer savings and enhanced benefits on Avis car rentals to Ink from Chase business card customers.

"We understand that small businesses are critical to the strength of the U.S. economy — they have created 65 percent of all new jobs in the past 17 years," said Michael J. White, senior vice president of small business for Avis Budget Group, parent company of Avis. "Small business owners, and their employees, will surely enjoy the great benefits that the Chase and Avis arrangement provides them, at no additional cost.”

As part of the agreement, Avis will provide Ink small business customers with benefits for enrolling in Avis Corporate Awards, the Company's car rental program for small firms. These include:

- Faster reward days: Avis Corporate Awards members earn one rental point for each paid rental day. Once the threshold has been achieved, members automatically receive a Reward Day Certificate for a future rental. Ink customers can earn Reward Day Certificates at an accelerated pace.

- Rental savings: Ink customers receive lower rates on Avis vehicles and discounts on amenities such as where2 GPS navigation rentals.

- Member-only offers, such as vehicle upgrades and additional discounts.

Ink from Chase also offers customers rapid accumulation of rewards and cash back, featuring five points per dollar spent on office supplies, telecommunication services and cable services on Ink Classic and 5 percent cash back in the same categories on Ink Cash. Ink Bold offers customers premium travel and rewards benefits and the ability to earn up to 70,000 bonus points in the first year.

In addition, customers have free access to Jot, a mobile application and online solution which saves small business owners time by enabling them to easily track, categorize and organize business expenses from their iPhone and Android mobile devices or online.
