Leading car hire firm, Avis Car Rental, today announces the launch of mobile Wi-Fi across 12 markets in Europe. From today, Avis UK customers will have access to 1GB per day internet access for as little as £8.50 per day.
The mobile Wi-Fi unit means users can connect up to five devices, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, and other Wi-Fi enabled devices, at any one time. Its compact, portable design means it can be taken out of the car, to the hotel, conference or business meeting – all with uninterrupted connectivity.
With Avis mobile Wi-Fi, customers now have cross-border connectivity, with no roaming charges, a first for the car hire industry in Europe.
Furthermore, with a fast download speed (21.6 Mbps), video-conferencing and accessing documents online is hassle-free, reliable and simple.
“Every year 6.78 million business people make a trip abroad from UK airports* to attend that all-important meeting or seal a business deal, so being able to stay connected is an essential part of any business trip,” said Mark Servodidio, Managing Director at Avis UK.
“With approximately £4.2 billion spent by European business travellers in 2012 just on connectivity**, we wanted to make people’s lives easier, and give our customers a cost-effective, seamless experience from door to door, and a convenient way of staying connected – not just whilst they are in the car.”
