Avis Rent a Car has announced the launch of an Android reservations app, which enables customers to book their car rental through any Avis branch worldwide from their smartphone running the Android operating system.
Avis chief information officer, Mynhardt van der Walt says, ‚It has been a goal of ours to be able to grow our menu of smartphone applications to make it more convenient for these customers to find the closest Avis office, to book on-the-go and to also manage these bookings.‚
The Avis Android app will store the customer’s personal details securely from their first booking, which means confidential information only needs to be entered once. Reservations can also be viewed and cancelled from the app and a smart search function has been included, which displays nearby Avis branches with a map and full address. The app can be adapted for international travel and bookings.
Van der Walt adds, ‚Making it as convenient as possible for our customers to use our services and to make their experience enjoyable at the same time, is what makes Avis a leading car rental brand. It is with this in mind that Avis continues to develop and grow their mobile offerings.‚
Customers are able to search for the Avis Android app through the Android Market on their smartphones, or use the following link to download the app through their PC: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.avis.android.za
The iPhone app is already available to South African users for free through the Apple App Store. The South African based Avis Blackberry app is also available at no charge on the South Africa BlackBerry App World.
