PARSIPPANY, N.J., Sept. 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Avis has announced the launch of “Free Days”, a promotion that allows customers to earn a free rental day each time they complete two qualifying rentals.

Formally known as “Drive Free,” the promotion runs through February 29, 2020 and is open to Avis Preferred members who reside in the United States or Canada. To participate, customers must register for the promotion at www.avis.com/freedays and complete two Avis rentals in an intermediate car or larger for a minimum of two consecutive days.

“Customer loyalty is very important to us and the Free Days promotion is another proof point to how we reward customers for their continued business,” said Joe Ferraro, President, Americas, Avis Budget Group. “Free Days is open to all Avis Preferred members and can be used for business or leisure travel.”

Members who download the Avis mobile app on iOS and Android devices can also control their entire rental experience via their smartphone. Renters can make or modify a reservation, browse for and choose the exact car they want, flash the lights to locate the car and even unlock the vehicle all from the Avis app.
