Avis Car Rental will add a variety of model-year 2016 Mercedes-Benz vehicles to its U.S. fleet, primarily to serve owner-customers of NetJets, a provider of private aviation and travel partner of Avis since 2003.
"As a premium brand, Avis is committed to representing the finest in vehicle rental products and services," said Joe Ferraro, president, Americas, Avis Budget Group. "NetJets customers now have the option to choose from a range of Mercedes-Benz automobiles for the utmost in style, luxury and engineering performance."
Starting in October, Avis locations in select U.S. cities will receive shipments of new Mercedes-Benz vehicles, such as the GLE SUV, E350 sedan, C-class luxury sport sedan and the SLK coupe.
These vehicles will be available for tarmac delivery to NetJets travelers flying into Fixed-Base Operations — as well as for standard rentals, pending vehicle availability, according to Avis.
"We know that many Avis and NetJets customers like to view a business trip or vacation as an opportunity to also take a brand-new car from an iconic brand out on the open road," said Ferraro. "The new model-year 2016 Mercedes-Benz lineup presents the best from one of the world's finest automobile manufacturers, and we're proud to make these available to Avis and NetJets customers starting this fall."
