Avis Budget Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:CAR) today announced that Avis Car Rental and Budget Car Rental have once again been selected as Qantas Frequent Flyer’s exclusive points-earning car rental partners. The renewed agreement offers the more than 11 million members of Qantas Frequent Flyer the opportunity to earn more Qantas Points whenever they rent a vehicle with Avis or Budget almost anywhere in the world.
Now, Qantas Frequent Flyer members will earn four Qantas Points for every dollar they spend on time and kilometer charges in Australia, and 700 points per eligible rental outside Australia. Qantas Points can also be redeemed for Avis and Budget rentals within Australia and New Zealand.
“We’re thrilled to renew this agreement to continue to offer Qantas Frequent Flyers the opportunity to both earn and use Qantas Points on car hire,” said Mark Servodidio, president, International, Avis Budget Group. “It will help us continue to attract new customers and generate incremental reservations from Qantas’ loyal customer base.”
“With this agreement, Qantas Frequent Flyer members have continued benefits with Avis and Budget,” said Lesley Grant, chief executive officer, Qantas Loyalty. “Members will also enjoy an increased earn rate when hiring a car.”
Avis Car Rental, a brand ranked number one in customer loyalty for 16 consecutive years, and Budget Car Rental, an award-winning value brand, debuted as Qantas Frequent Flyer car rental partners in 2002.
