Avis has launched a car rental subscription
service to meet the changing consumer demands for car ownership in
Avis Flex provides customers with the flexibility
of renting a car between 28 days up to 11 months, without the ties
of leasing and at cheaper rates than usual day rentals.
Customers are not required to pay any
upfront costs nor sign any long-term agreements. They can also
choose to swap their vehicles three times in 11 months at different
intervals to experience different car models that suit specific
trips or requirements.
With Avis Flex, customers can enjoy the freedom of
having cars at their disposal with a monthly fee covering all
running costs like maintenance fees, scheduled servicing and
replacement of tyres.
Basic insurance coverage is included as part of the
monthly fee, such as basic collision damage waiver and theft
protection, along with 24/7 mechanical breakdown assistance to
help customers to drive with peace of mind.
Tom Mooney, Managing Director, Pacific, Avis
Budget Group, said, “From Avis Budget Group’s future of mobility
research in 2019, we found that 73% of residents in Singapore
would consider giving up car ownership and rely on long term car
rental if it was convenient and easy for them, ranking second
among 16 countries in Europe and Asia surveyed. Now with the
uncertainty from the coronavirus, we are expecting even more
people to look into rental solutions as a private and flexible
transport alternative. The launch of Avis Flex in Singapore, means we can
now provide our customers with more choice and an attractive,
cost-effective alternative to buying a vehicle, along with a
clean, safe and reliable service.”
