Avis Budget Group is making it easier for travelers to stay connected. The Company today announced that Avis Car Rental and Budget Car Rental customers can now rent tablets at participating locations across the United States.

Tablets available for rent include wall chargers and car chargers. Customers will also benefit from 4G LTE network coverage and the following notable features:

  • International Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology for placing and transmitting telephone calls and texts over an IP network. Tablets are pre-loaded with 60 credits per day, which equates to 30 minutes of international calling or 60 minutes of domestic calling. Text messages are charged at a rate of one credit per text. Additional credits are available for purchase.
  • Wi-Fi hotspot for up to five devices with unlimited data.
  • Advanced navigation with voice-activated turn-by-turn directions.
  • Entertainment options such as a language translator, camera, internet access, popular applications and more.

“Staying connected while on the road can be a challenge, especially when you’re traveling internationally and you have to contend with overages and roaming charges,” said Joe Ferraro, president, Americas, Avis Budget Group. “Our tablet rentals make it easy, convenient and more affordable for travelers to stay connected. It’s another way that we ‘put the customer first’ to deliver products and services that enhance the travel experience.”

The tablets are available for rent at $21.99 per day at Avis and Budget rental facilities at the nation’s top airports, including Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Fort Lauderdale, Honolulu, Houston, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Maui, Miami, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Francisco, San Jose, Tampa and Washington, D.C. The tablets are also available at select off-airport locations.

Avis Budget Group encourages drivers to operate vehicles safely. Tablets should not be actively used by drivers when vehicles are in motion.
