Avis Budget Group Fleet Expands to 100,000 Connected Cars

Avis Budget Group surpassed the 100,000 connected car threshold globally, a milestone it says that promises to further improve the traveller experience, increase operational efficiencies for the company, and benefit smart city planning.

The growing presence of connected cars across the Avis Budget Group fleet, combined with the Avis mobile app, means more travellers can change or upgrade their vehicle in real-time right from the lot, locate their vehicle and, in the future, personalise geolocation-based travel and tourism push notifications sent to customers.

Arthur Orduña, chief innovation officer, Avis Budget Group, elaborated, "Connected cars allow Avis customers to manage their entire rental through our app, including locking and unlocking car doors via smartphone. We see a future in which connected cars will know preferred seat position, car temperature, radio presets and more.”
