Avis and Ink announce exclusive partnership

Avis Rent A Car and Ink from Chase, the business card portfolio from Chase Card Services, a division of JPMorgan Chase & Co., announced today an exclusive multi-year agreement to offer savings and enhanced benefits on Avis car rentals to Ink from Chase business card customers.

“We understand that small businesses are critical to the strength of the U.S. economy – they have created 65 percent of all new jobs in the past 17 years,”* said Michael J. White, senior vice president of small business for Avis Budget Group, parent company of Avis. “Small business owners, and their employees, will surely enjoy the great benefits that the Chase and Avis arrangement provides them, at no additional cost. We look forward to generating small business accounts from this strategic partnership and creating a new source of incremental bookings for Avis.”

As part of the agreement, Avis will provide Ink small business customers with benefits for enrolling in Avis Corporate Awards, the Company’s car rental program for small firms. These include:

Faster reward days – Avis Corporate Awards members earn one rental point for each paid rental day. Once the threshold has been achieved, members automatically receive a Reward Day Certificate for a future rental. Ink customers can earn Reward Day Certificates at an accelerated pace.

Rental savings – Ink customers receive lower rates on Avis vehicles and discounts on amenities such as where2™ GPS navigation rentals.
Member-only offers, such as vehicle upgrades and additional discounts.


“We are continually looking for opportunities that allow Ink from Chase to provide enhanced benefits that provide tangible cost savings to our customers,” said Beverly Kennedy, general manager of Ink from Chase. “Realizing that many of today’s small business owners are on the go – not only around town, but around the country – we teamed with Avis to offer our customers real rewards and service when traveling.”

Ink from Chase also offers customers rapid accumulation of rewards and cash back, featuring five points per dollar spent on office supplies, telecommunication services and cable services on Ink(SM) Classic and five percent cash back in the same categories on Ink Cash(SM). Ink Bold(SM) offers customers premium travel and rewards benefits and the ability to earn up to 70,000 bonus points in the first year.
