Rent One Online to Provide Avis and Budget Rental Cars to Vacation Rental Travelers

Share Article

Pioneering “Direct Connect” partnership allows Rent One Online customers to deliver a more complete vacation experience and earn extra profit by providing rental cars along with vacation rental lodging reservations.

Many customers that are booking a vacation rental also need a rental car. This is an easy and time-saving solution that customers will really benefit from.

Rent One Online is introducing the ability for travelers to vacation rental properties to get quotes and book Avis and Budget rental cars via Rent One Online’s rental property management and vacation travel software. Rent One Online’s solution is used by vacation rental managers, “destination area” real estate offices, resorts and web sites that list vacation rental properties.

Rent One Online is the first vacation rental company to directly integrate car rental booking within its web-based reservation and vacation property management software. Rent One Online, and its network of customers, can now offer quality Avis and Budget rental cars to vacation rental travelers from the initial “point of booking” through the “point of stay”. Rental managers win by providing better service and by sharing in the travel agency commission received by Rent One Online; the vacation rental traveler wins via the convenience of a “one-stop shop” for a complete vacation.

“We are very excited about the opportunity to work with Rent One Online and the new market opportunity it represents for us,” said Kaye Ceille, vice president of travel industry and partnerships for Avis Budget Car Rental, LLC, (formerly Cendant Car Rental Group), parent company of Avis Rent A Car and Budget Rent A Car. “Many customers that are booking a vacation rental also need a rental car. This is an easy and time-saving solution that customers will really benefit from. ”

Jim Metcalf is the owner of Hawaii Resort Management in Kona, Hawaii and is using Rent One Online to manage his 300 rental properties. According to Jim, "Frequently, guests ask us if we can provide a rental car along with the lodging reservation. We have tried rental car partnerships in the past and the administration and paperwork was simply overwhelming. Rent One Online takes away all the work on our part, allows us to provide a more complete vacation and we even earn extra profit from referral fees from car rentals booked through our Rent One Online software."
