Read MoreHide Full Article

Avis Budget Group, Inc.’s (CAR - Free Report) Avis Car Rental has added split payment functionality to the Avis mobile app.

Known as Split My Bill, the new feature enables travelers to divide car rental payments in two different forms. They can now split payment by total bill amount, rental days or additions like SiriusXM Radio any time during their rental period. The feature is available through website as well.

Avis Car Rental claims that it is the first car rental company to introduce this payment functionality to mobile app experience.

Beth Gibson, vice president, Ancillary Revenue at Avis Budget Group stated, “With the introduction of Split My Bill, our business travelers can go beyond the corporate experience or trip to experience upgrades and additional services that travelers enjoy and want.”

Our Take

The functionality adds to the number of elements of rental experience that Avis customers can control using the mobile app. This is yet another example of how the company continues to enhance its technology and improve its offerings to give itself a leg up on competitors such as Hertz Global (HTZ - Free Report) and HyreCar (HYRE - Free Report) .

Notably, Avis has a partnership with Amazon (AMZN - Free Report) that enables customers to book and manage their car rental reservations through Amazon Alexa enabled devices.
