Avis Sweetens the Pot With Perks for Amazon Customers

Do you like free money? Then you’re going to love the new deal that has been cooked up between Avis and Amazon beginning this month.

Avis and Amazon have teamed up to offer you deeper discounts on your car rentals from the company. Not only will you find the prices are lower, but you will also find an Amazon gift card worth 10 percent of your rental price deposited into your account within 48 hours of your rental ending. Should you choose to book your rental through the Alexa app, your gift card will be issued as a 20 percent credit.

Beyond the gift card refund, you will also find deeper discounts when booking Comparing my account with Amazon attached to a non-logged in account, I found a price difference. For a full-sized car, for one week, rented from the same location, the pay at the counter price with Amazon activated was $309.60, while the non-logged in account was $339.

To begin with the discount is only available in the U.S., but Avis hoped to expend it to other markets in the future.

As someone who frequently rents cars on business trips, Avis definitely has my attention. While I’m unsure if I’ll use the Alexa app, I’ll still be very happy to use to be rewarded with 10 percent of my rental back.
