Avis Car Rental is teaming up with the illustrious automobile maker Mercedes-Benz to offer elite customers access to these luxury vehicles.
Avis announced last week that the company is adding a variety of 2016 Mercedes-Benz vehicles to its fleet in the United States. The cars and sport utility vehicles would be available primarily for owner-customers of NetJets, a private aviation company and a partner of Avis since 2003.
In October, several Avis locations in the United States will begin receiving the new Mercedes-Benz vehicles, which will be available for tarmac delivery to NetJets travelers and for standard rentals, pending availability.
Avis Budget Group president Joe Ferraro released a statement about the partnership:
“As a premium brand, Avis is committed to representing the finest in vehicle rental products and services. NetJets customers now have the option to choose from a range of Mercedes-Benz automobiles for the utmost in style, luxury and engineering performance.
"We know that many Avis and NetJets customers like to view a business trip or vacation as an opportunity to also take a brand-new car from an iconic brand out on the open road. The new model-year 2016 Mercedes-Benz lineup presents the best from one of the world's finest automobile manufacturers, and we're proud to make these available to Avis and NetJets customers starting this fall.”
Some of the new Mercedes-Benz vehicle models being added to the Avis fleet are include the GLE Sport Utility Vehicle, the E350 Sedan, the C-Class Luxury Sport Sedan, the GLC-Class Coupe and the SLK Coupe.
The new Mercedes-Benz vehicles will be based at select Avis airport locations in major cities, and will feature additional rental options for customers like GPS devices, several insurance coverages, child safety seats and Roadside Assistance.
