Avis Car Rental has unveiled updates to its mobile app.

The Avis mobile app now offers a wider selection of vehicles for customers to choose from when they are selecting their rental vehicle just prior to arriving at the rental facility. Customers can also conveniently locate gas stations and parking options within a 5-mile radius of their location via the Avis mobile app.

Customers can see how many minutes away the next courtesy bus is via the mobile app. This feature allows customers to view the location of Avis shuttle buses, pick-up points, and the Avis rental location on an in-app map that refreshes every five seconds.

Customers can now download receipts for previous rentals. Receipts are available in PDF format, enabling travelers to obtain the documentation needed for business travel reimbursement.

The app also has a “find my car” feature that works with connected cars. It shows the exact location of the rental car should customers forget where they parked.

“We partnered with our customers to determine what they wanted, and we’ve delivered,” said Arthur Orduna, chief innovation officer, Avis Budget Group. “We’re excited to innovate and continue to delight Avis renters when they’re on the road. In fact, our vision is to create an experience where all aspects of the customers’ rental — everything they need, want and could possibly ask for — are available at the touch of a button on the Avis app.”

The Avis mobile app experience is currently available at approximately 150 locations globally.
