Budget Car Rental, one of the world’s best-known car rental brands with more than 3,000 locations in 120 countries, has launched its official app in the iTunes App Store today that allows users to make, view, modify or cancel reservations for car rentals at Budget neighborhood and airport locations throughout the United States and Canada (via WSJ MarketWatch). The free Budget iPhone app securely stores client profile information including renter’s name, contact information and rental preferences to save traveller’s precious time. For additional convenience, the app also locates the nearest Budget facility using the device’s GPS system.
Detailing from the source:
“Travelers are using their mobile devices to access Budget.com and make reservations more than ever before. In fact, reservations via mobile devices have increased by 110 percent over last year,” said Jeannine Haas, chief marketing officer for Avis Budget Group. “We’re excited to introduce these Budget apps and make it even easier to get away and ‘Go Budget!'”
Travelers looking to save time when renting can also enjoy the benefits of membership in Fastbreak(R), Budget’s express rental service. Customers simply sign a Master Rental Agreement which stores all their rental preferences, from vehicle type and ancillary products to optional coverages and payment method. Then, customers can expedite the reservation process and can go straight to their waiting car when picking up the rental vehicle, saving valuable time.
