Budget Rent A Car today announced that it has expanded Unlimited Budget®, the Company’s loyalty program for travel professionals, to feature more partners, including Avis Rent A Car, and to offer agents more reward opportunities.
To celebrate, Budget is offering Unlimited Budget members a way to earn double points when booking Avis rentals in the United States and Canada. Through December 15, 2010, travel professionals can receive double points on completed Avis rentals of three to nine days.
