Avis Continues Local Market Expansion with Thirty-Five New Western Locations

Free Pick-up and Drop-off Service Within a Five-Mile Radius; 12-Passenger Vans Offered

PARSIPPANY, N.J., March 22 /PRNewswire/ — Avis Rent A Car System, Inc. today announced the opening of thirty-five new car rental facilities as part of its commitment to expand into local markets nationwide. Avis has opened more than sixty-five local rental facilities throughout the United States since July 2004, for a total of more than ninety locations over the past year. Avis plans to open an additional 100 locations each year for the next three years.

The new locations, situated in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Texas and Washington, provide Avis customers with a wide range of rental vehicles including minivans, SUVs, luxury vehicles and newly added 12-passenger vans. All vehicles are backed by the Avis commitment to provide outstanding customer service and include free pick-up and drop-off service within a five-mile radius, roadside assistance and, in most cases, unlimited mileage. All Avis rate plans will be honored, including special inter-city, one-way rates with no drop-off charges between these locations and the airport. Avis also offers an insurance replacement program designed for customers who are having their own cars repaired.

“The local market in the West is an area showing tremendous growth,” Ray Koch, vice president of off-airport operations for Cendant Car Rental Group, parent of Avis. “Customers rent from these locations for a variety of reasons — whether they are taking a long trip and want to avoid putting miles on their car or their own car is being repaired. Our expansion in this market will ensure that Avis is conveniently located to serve all their rental needs.”
