Yesterday our partner, British Airways, announced that they are to provide 5,000 business class return flights to small and medium-sized businesses to help boost overseas sales during the economic crisis. Today, we’re delighted to announce that Avis has agreed to support this campaign (that is also supported by the Daily Mail) by offering 1,500 free car rentals to small businesses worth more than £175,000. Small businesses are often referred to as being “at the heart of the economy” so it is a real pleasure to be able to help this campaign succeed in achieving it’s very important objective.

We’re currently in the process of agreeing terms and conditions of the proposal with the government’s UK Trade & Investment, which is also backing the campaign along with British American Business. Full details will be posted on within the next few days and I’ll update this blog post with the full link once details have become available.

In the meantime, firms who want to apply for BA’s return business class flights can do so on the UK Trade & Investment website (UKTI).
