Garmin Where2 GPSAs a company we are really keen on innovation (like starting this blog!) and introducing products and services that our customers will find useful. Our colleagues in the US have been doing some exciting stuff recently so I thought I would share some of their latest additions with you. They’re great – especially if you are into car and mobile technology, which I am!

Autonet Mobile Service wifi hotspot
Coming soon to selected US locations… This unit gives you a wireless internet connection wherever travel in your Avis Rent a Car, as it works almost anywhere in the States. It’s great for both business and families – you can go online for everything from email to film and music downloads. You plug the Auto Mobile box into your laptop or PDA, and then start surfing without any extra software. (I should point out that for safe driving you must only use it if you’re a passenger or when the car is parked.)

Where2 GPS navigation
Introducing… The new Where2 touchscreen sat nav from Garmin, which has real-time congestion and weather information, and alerts for any detours. It’s perfect for downtown LA – and cutting down on map-reading arguments!

XM Satellite Radio
XM is America’s leading satellite radio service and offers 160 music, news and sports channels, including MTV, ESPN radio and Fox news. There are also instant traffic and weather reports 24 hours a day. It’s available free in premium and luxury cars from Avis US. Our counterparts there ran a TV advertising campaign to promote it. You can see the ad on YouTube.

Why we love to blog

At Avis, we really do try harder. We pioneered blogging in the car rental world and we aim to make our blog much more than just an information source. You can use our blog to ask questions or tell us what’s important to you when you hire a car. We try harder because we care what you think, so we really do value your feedback.

New to car rentals? Our blog gives you tips and advice on getting the most out of your Avis car hire experience. You can find information about booking and hiring your car, safety tips, and eco driving. We also provide driving advice and the latest news about our fleet.

We understand that hiring a car is just one part of your trip, so our blog covers other aspects of holiday and business travel too. Whether you want to know more about business travel hire conditions, access to location and city guides or ideas for families travelling with children, it’s all here.

But that’s just a taster – find out more about the Avis blog.
