Cendant Car Rental Group Announces Budget and Avis WebLinks for Travel Agents

Agents Can Earn Additional Commission Through New Online Tool

Parsippany, NJ Dec 28, 2004 -

Travel agents can now obtain car rental commissions even on their days off. Cendant Car Rental Group today announced the launch of Avis and Budget WebLinks for travel agents. The new tool provides travel agents with a WebLink to be placed on their agency’s Web site and the opportunity to receive up to 10% commission on eligible revenue with every rental made through the link.

In three simple steps, agents can upload Avis and Budget web banners giving their clients an easy way to book car rentals through their site as well as instant access to special offers. Every rental reservation made is automatically pre-filled with the travel agent’s information enabling the tracking of rentals and to provide commission back to the agent.

The WebLinks can be easily downloaded onto any PC from a CD-ROM provided by Cendant Car Rental Group. Complete implementation requires the following simple steps:

  • Provide Cendant Car Rental Group with an ARC/IATA number to track bookings
  • Select Budget and Avis banners or promotional graphic for the travel agent Web site
  • Copy the HTML code provided on a CD-ROM by Cendant Car Rental Group and place it on the travel agent Web site
  • Commissions are paid on time and mileage of rentals only.

“We are proud to bring the travel agent community another tool to enhance customer satisfaction,” stated Gerard Quirk, vice president of global travel industry for Cendant Car Rental Group, parent of Avis and Budget. “The Avis and Budget WebLinks ensure that agents get a balanced offering – a premium brand with Avis and a great value with Budget.”
