"Like Avis Preferred, Google Wallet saves people valuable time and provides them with added convenience," said Jeannine Haas, chief marketing officer, North America, Avis Budget Group. "This offering enables us to market our products and services to customers through a dynamic, emerging channel and thereby help to generate incremental bookings."
