PARSIPPANY, N.J., Dec. 18, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Avis Car Rental has expanded its footprint in Singapore by providing access to rental vehicles at three new locations in the Central Business District. Conveniently located at the Regus Business Centers at One Fullerton, Marina Bay Financial Center and Centennial Tower, Suntec, the new service points will serve to meet the growing demand for domestic car rental and leasing by both visiting and resident business travelers.
"Singapore's robust economy and leading position in the financial, oil and casino gaming industries have resulted in an increased demand for car rental and leasing services," said Patric Siniscalchi, president, Latin America/Asia Pacific, Avis Budget Group.
