TRAVEL EXPERTS REWARD AVIS WITH HIGHEST PRAISE AT WORLD TRAVEL AWARDS
PARSIPPANY, N.J., May 17, 2010 - Avis announced that its 2010 car rental fleet is ready to serve businessş and leisure car rental customers seeking a "green" ride. The Company's 2010 line-up offers renters a wide variety of SmartWay-certified vehicles, including the Ford Focus, Hyundai Sonata, Nissan Versa and Pontiac G6.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certifies vehicles in its SmartWay Certification program based on its rigorous air pollution and greenhouse gas emission standards. Sixty-two percent of vehicles in Avis' fleet are SmartWay Certified - with nearly 100 percent of subcompact, compact and intermediate vehicles achieving the EPA's green stamp of approval.
"At Avis, 'We Try Harder' to meet our customers' varied travel needs - and that includes offering products and services that appeal to those who wish to minimize their environmental impact," said Becky Alseth, senior vice president of marketing for Avis Budget Group, parent company of Avis. "In addition to SmartWay-certified vehicles, we offer gas/electric hybrid vehicles in our Cool Car Collection which can be reserved by specific make and model."
Avis offers renters additional ways to help minimize the environmental impact of their rental car use:
