The Parsipany-based car rental company and its affiliate, Budget Car Rental, will be the only car rental brands available for booking through British Airways, Iberia and Iberua Express, with Aer Lingus to follow at a later date. Under the agreement, Avis will also be the exclusive car rental service associated with IAG’s loyalty programs across all of its airlines.
“This new agreement with IAG is a testament of our continued commitment to provide our partners and their customers with best-in-class products and service,” Mark Servodidio, Avis’ president, said in a press release. “We’re thrilled to strengthen our relationship and look forward to working together to further provide a seamless travel solution.”
“This partnership dates back more than 20 years when Avis Car Rental teamed up with our loyalty programme, Iberia Plus, followed by the British Airways Executive Club,” Silvia Cairo, head of commercial planning and policy, IAG, said. “Since then, Avis, and later Budget, have consistently delivered world-class services to our customers. We’re excited to renew our agreement with Avis Budget Group and expand the relationship to offer a complete range of car rental options to our airlines.”
