Two years ago, we introduced Select Series (originally called Choice Fleet) in the UK, to provide the opportunity to guarantee the make/model of the car you drive from a select range of vehicles. It is available at our most popular UK locations and gives customers an alternative to booking one of a number of different models within a specified car category.
I have been following the comments about Select Series on the blog with interest and have been delighted with all the great feedback, particularly on the blog post about introducing the Audi A4 and A6 to the Select Series. As we move into 2008 we are looking for your feedback again so you can help us shape what the Select Series will look like in the new year.
Any kind of feedback is welcome but in particular we are love to know what specific make/models would you most like to be able to book on the Select Series? At the moment we have the Peugeot 207 CC, the VW Golf, and the Audi A4 and A6 (A4 available as saloon and estate). Are these the right models to promote? Or have you spotted a car on our standard fleet that you would love to be able to guarantee? Amongst the cars we currently have on our standard fleet are the Renault Clio, Megane, Laguna, Grande Scenic and Espace; Peugeot 207, 307, 407 and 807; Ford Fiesta, Focus and Mondeo; VW Passat and Sharan; Fiat Grande Punto and Bravo; Vauxhall Vectra; and Mercedes C-Class and E-Class. Would you prefer to be able to guarantee any of these make/models over what is currently available on the Select Series? In addition, are there any models you would like Avis to consider and talk to manufacturers about outside of those we have listed?
I look forward to any thoughts you may have!
