Avis and Budget Now Offer Mobile Phone Chargers

Avis Car Rental and Budget Car Rental customers can now purchase mobile phone chargers at participating U.S. locations, according to Avis Budget Group Inc. This can help them stay connected throughout their travels.

The mobile phone accessories include a universal car charger with dual USB ports, a retractable car charger for use with Android devices (that includes an adapter that supports the iPhone 4/S, iPad and iPod), an iPhone 5 lightening cable and a universal wall charger with dual USB ports.

The products are available at Avis and Budget rental facilities at the nation's top airports, including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Fort Lauderdale, Los Angeles, Honolulu, Houston, Miami, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle, Tampa and Washington, D.C.

In addition, these mobile phone accessories will also be for sale at select off-airport locations, says Avis.

"Preparation before a trip can sometimes be chaotic and travelers sometimes forget their mobile phone chargers," said Tom Gartland, president, North America, Avis Budget Group. "Often, our customers are relying on many different features of their phone in order to enjoy their travels and be productive. Our new product offering is another way we 'put the customer first' and help business and leisure travelers stay connected while on the go."
