Avis Budget Group is now rewarding Amazon customers for renting its cars.

Now, when Amazon customers book an Avis vehicle, they will receive an gift card valued at 10 percent of the rental price.

Later this month, those who book an Avis vehicle using the Avis skill on Amazon Alexa will receive an gift card valued at 20 percent.

“Amazon customers are accustomed to convenient and on-demand services, and Avis Budget Group is pleased to be able to add transportation to the mix,” says Beth Kinerk, senior vice president of sales for Avis Budget Group.

Avis has worked with Amazon before, launching its Alexa skill in 2017. Customers can use the skill to make rental car reservations, review current or past reservations and request an e-receipt.

Travelers can use their voices to book rental cars, saying things such as “I need a car at La Guardia Airport at 9:00 a.m. this Friday.”

The promotion is available in the USA for now but will become available in other key markets.
