Avis copies from “car sharing” rental car companies


Avis’ RFID Tracker Turns Companies into Rental Lots


I know this may seem like a scoop to some folks, but car share companies like Zip Car and Philly Car Share (now owned by Enterprise) have staked their whole model on this and it has been pretty successful. You can’t mention Avis’ transition to this without mentioning that the airport, train and bus station centered car rental biz feels it needs to adapt the car share distribution model for a segment of its business. Must be something to it.
