Avis Car Rental offers mobile W-Fi for business travellers
The move means that Avis UK customers will have access to 1GB per day internet access for as little as £8.50 per day.
Offering a fast download speed of 21.6 Mbps, the mobile Wi-Fi unit enables users to connect up to five devices, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, and other Wi-Fi enabled devices, at any one time. The compact, portable design also enables users to take it out of the car, to the hotel, conference or business meeting.
With Avis mobile Wi-Fi, customers now have cross-border connectivity, with no roaming charges, a first for the car hire industry in Europe.
‘Every year 6.78 million business people make a trip abroad from UK airports to attend that all-important meeting or seal a business deal, so being able to stay connected is an essential part of any business trip,’ said Mark Servodidio, managing director at Avis UK.
‘With approximately £4.2 billion spent by European business travellers in 2012 just on connectivity, we wanted to make people’s lives easier, and give our customers a cost-effective, seamless experience from door to door, and a convenient way of staying connected – not just whilst they are in the car.’
