Iberia has announced a new partnership agreement with Avis Budget Group, which has become the exclusive car rental partner of the airline’s loyalty programme, Iberia Plus.
The partnership launch campaign, We Travel Together, highlights the opportunity for Iberia Plus members to earn Avios for every rental booked.
Iberia Plus Members will also receive 750 bonus Avios when they make their fourth rental each year.
There is also the opportunity to earn 500 Avios when a member signs up to the Avis Preferred loyalty scheme.
Customers who sign up to Avis Preferred and rent with Avis twice in one year will get a free vehicle upgrade voucher and a money-off voucher.
Javier Perales, head of Iberia Plus stated: “Thanks to the agreement reached with Avis, we’ll offer our Iberia Plus customers a better service, with exclusive benefits when they rent their cars with Avis.
“It is part of our commercial policy to improve the travel experience of our customers.”
If one more vehicle is hired that year, customers will receive a free weekend’s rental in Europe.
Other benefits of the partnership agreement include a free additional driver on all rentals and priority service at Madrid airport counters.
Ramón Biarnés, commercial director of Avis Budget Group in the European southern region said: “We are very pleased with the agreement reached with Iberia.
“We have a long standing partnership with Iberia and the results have always been very positive.
“This step involves the consolidation of our relationship and we expect all users of Iberia Plus to enjoy the advantages that we have prepared.”
