Avis and Arrive just made finding parking a snap for users of the Avis app. Available now, Avis app users can find, instantly book and pre-pay for parking, saving drivers time, effort and money.
It’s the perfect complement to the existing features in the Avis app that give them greater control, transparency and personalization of the overall experience.
“We are constantly striving to improve the customer experience, and solving one of the biggest pain points – parking – will go a great distance to helping us achieve our goal,” said Arthur Orduna, Chief Innovation Officer, Avis Budget Group. “The Arrive app integration removes the stress and hassle of finding parking for both road warriors and leisure travelers, while also making the lives of travel managers easier. This partnership cuts across all three of Avis Budget Group’s innovation initiatives: reinventing rental, digitizing the business and developing new models.”
As one of the largest non-managed travel expenses, parking can also have a huge impact on a company’s bottom line. Through the Avis and Arrive partnership, travelers and travel managers can save money on parking expenses when a road warrior rents an Avis vehicle and pays for parking within the Avis app
Available to all Avis users in the United States, all parking-related fees purchased through the Avis app are applied directly to the customer’s credit card associated with the rental further simplifying travel expense management and providing rich data to help inform financial models.
“We understand that parking can be difficult, especially in unfamiliar cities, and it can often come with a huge cost that has historically been hard to predict,” said Dan Roarty, President and COO of Arrive. “We are honored to partner with Avis to provide their customers a simpler travel experience and a better way to manage their expenses.”
