Avis Rent A Car has officially partnered with TripIt, who is the leading mobile trip organizer from Concur, to offer millions of travelers a faster, easier and personalized way to rent a car on their trips.

TripIt was designed to give travelers a way to organize their whole trip in one place, now anyone who connects their Avis account with their TripIt account can access their trip itineraries and make an Avis reservation all at the same time. The Avis service obtains all the information about your trip, such as, flight and hotel details from TripIt and populates them onto Avis.com giving you less planning to do.

“The vast majority of people typically make airline and hotel reservations first, before they reserve a rental car,” said Tom Gartland, president, North America, for Avis Budget Group, parent company of Avis. “This partnership will help travelers who have completed their air and hotel arrangements and provide them with an even faster way to add an Avis rental to their trip. TripIt members will benefit from not having to remember travel dates, times or flight information, and having their rental car arrangements directly connected with their other travel plans.”

Avis is committed to offering renters time saving amenities, hence the new service with TripIt. In 2007, through an optimized version of Avis.com designed for mobile phones, they reviled the industry’s first online booking tool for Internet enabled portable devices. They have also introduced the first portable navigation device and electronic toll collection solutions, and continue to lad the industry with innovations.

“We are thrilled to work with Avis, a premium brand and a technology innovator in the car rental industry to build a truly personalized experience for travelers,” said Gregg Brockway, general manager and executive vice president of Concur’s TripIt business unit. “Travelers will love how fast and easy it is to reserve an Avis vehicle and have all their trip plans in one place. Plus, the partnership brings to life the vision we’ve had for TripIt’s technology since the very beginning: to streamline the travel process and make life easier for travelers.”
