Avis India introduces chauffeur booking app for Indians travelling abroad

Avis ChauffeurAvis in India has just inaugurated a website add-on which enables people travelling overseas to pre-book chauffeur drive services. Avis says it will add the option to its mobile device app in the near future.

At present, Avis customers are able to log in to Avis India’s website and make a reservation for Avis Chauffeur at Avis depots all over the world. Avis India notes that the chauffeur option is a perfect complement to its global self-drive hire services.

Avis India CEOSunil Gupta explained that international chauffeur services would be offered through the company’s global partners. He carried on by saying chauffeur services were just as likely to suit Indian leisure travellers as business ones.

Laying out Avis’s marketing strategies, Mr Gupta said the company would be collaborating with travel agents and tour operators and would be offering commission incentives. The service is likely to be a boon to the 20 million Indians who travel abroad every year.

Mr Gupta noted that Indians now travelled to countries ranging from the UK to the US and New Zealand. He said many had indicated they would like to have easy access to chauffeur drive services for when they arrived.

The Avis Budget group is headquartered in New Jersey. The company has a presence in 165 countries with a total of 5,000-plus rental outlets. Avis Chauffeur is available mostly in the US and Europe and offers a choice of car, executive car and minibus for customers.
