"As a result, we're thrilled to announce that our new mobile apps now provide a faster and easier experience and access to our full range of products and services, giving customers the freedom they deserve."

The mobile applications are currently available on the iOS and Android platforms for both Avis and Budget customers. In addition, the apps are also available on the Microsoft Windows Phone and BlackBerry operating systems, says the company.
