Avis Rent A Car has expanded the number of local rental branches in the UK by 50% over the last two months, by teaming up with hotels and serviced offices.
The car rental company has opened in 37 new locations since the start of this year and plans to open a further 100 branches by the end of 2011.
Some 21 of the newly opened Avis branches have been launched in partnership with serviced office provider Regus, allowing travellers to hire cars through their nearest Regus base. The other 16 local branches were set up in partnership with hotels.
Anthony Ainsworth, Commercial Director at Avis UK, said the growth represented a significant achievement.
“[It] puts us another step closer to reaching our ultimate goal of having an Avis branch within a few miles of every household in the UK,” he said.
