The Express Lane Is Now Open At Avis And Budget As Newest Benefit For Those Who Pay In Advance

PARSIPPANY, N.J., March 17, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Avis Budget Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:CAR) today announced that Avis Car Rental and Budget Car Rental customers who utilize the "Pay Now" option on Avis.com or Budget.com to pay for their rentals in advance, can now benefit from a new expedited check-out service. These customers can now utilize the new express lane at Avis and Budget rental counters and complete the process of getting into their rental vehicles more quickly.

"Customers typically choose to pay for their rentals in advance as a way to lock in discounted rates. For example, taking advantage of Budget's Pay Now rates in San Francisco can save customers approximately $5 to $40 on a daily rental, or approximately $25 to $125 for a weekend rental," said Tom Gartland, president, North America, Avis Budget Group. "We're happy to enhance our Pay Now option and enable customers to save money and time, so they can make the most out of their business or leisure travels."

The Pay Now express lane builds upon Avis Budget Group's ongoing commitment to put the customer first. The Company recently invested in its website infrastructure to improve response time and enhance the user experience for visitors to its mobile websites and to Avis.com and Budget.com. As the latest step in enhancing the customer experience, Avis Budget Group launched new Avis and Budget mobile applications for travelers on the go, with accelerated response times and compelling new features.

Pay Now expedited check-out is available at more than 100 rental facilities in the United States, including Albany, Albuquerque, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Denver, Dallas, Honolulu, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, San Francisco, Seattle, Salt Lake City, Tulsa and Washington, D.C. Participating locations are identified through banner ads during the car selection step of the reservation process and signage at the rental counters.
