Avis Celebrates 100,000 Select & Go Transactions

PARSIPPANY, N.J., Feb. 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Avis Car Rental today announced that Avis Preferred ® Select & Go, the Company's vehicle selection service, has exceeded 100,000 vehicle exchange transactions, including upgrades. Launched in June and now available at top airport locations in the United States, Select & Go empowers frequent renters to select the vehicle that best fits their needs without ever visiting the rental counter.

"Select & Go was designed to enhance the customer experience and give renters control over the vehicle selection process," said Gina Bruzzichesi, senior vice president, customer experience, Avis Budget Group. "We're thrilled that Avis Preferred members have enthusiastically embraced the service and that our continued commitment to such customer-focused initiatives is paying off."

With Select & Go, Avis Preferred members can (1) keep and drive away in their pre-assigned rental vehicle; (2) exchange their car, at no additional charge, by selecting another one from the designated area; or (3) upgrade their vehicle for an additional charge by choosing a specialty car or SUV from the designated area. Then, customers simply drive their selected vehicle to the exit gate, present a valid driver's license to the Avis representative and the rental check-out process is completed.

Avis Preferred Select & Go is now available at airport locations in Albuquerque, Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore, Charlotte, Chicago (O'Hare), Cleveland, Columbus, Dallas (DFW), Dallas (Love) Denver, Detroit, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Hartford, Houston (Bush Intercontinental and Hobby), Indianapolis, Kansas City, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Maui, Miami, Minneapolis, Nashville, Newark, New York (JFK and LaGuardia), Oakland, Orlando, Phoenix, Portland, Raleigh-Durham, Seattle, San Antonio, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, St. Louis, Washington D.C.
