Avis Budget Group has announced that it has added the Avis Prestige collection to its travel agent portal, Beep. Available on bookings for Prestige cars in the UK fleet, Prestige offers self-drive cars including saloon, luxury 4×4 and sports cars including Aston Martin, BMW and Range Rover.
Beep was launched to the trade in June as a car rental one-stop shop bringing Avis Car Rental and Budget Car Rental together on one platform. As well as being able to make bookings or reservations the site also features destination and driving guides and training tools for agents.
With Avis Prestige, a ‘meet and greet’ service is available as standard, and satellite navigation and additional drivers and delivery and car collection service can be included at no extra cost.
Avis Budget Group’s UK director of travel partnerships, Jeanette Harper, said: “We really value business from travel agents and we’re thrilled that we can now offer a complete range of vehicles through Beep – the great value of Budget, the premium service offered by Avis and also now, top of the range Avis Prestige cars. Not only does this provide agents with more choice for their clients, but agents can also take advantage of the great levels of commission to be earned.”
Tony Rodia, head of sales at Avis Prestige said: “Avis is one of the only suppliers to offer these high performance vehicles and there is an increasing number of customers who are looking to hire something extra special; from clients looking for a Jaguar F-Type sports car for a weekend away, to blue-chip companies who require a fleet of Range Rovers for a corporate event.”
