Avis Europe has announced a new three year agreement to become the exclusive car rental partner for the leading global/international hospitality group, Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts. Avis will provide a dedicated and tailored service for the hotel chain's customers, including an easy-to-use and bespoke on-line booking system and fast on-line sign-up to Avis' loyalty programme, Avis Preferred.

"Through partnerships with selected partners who share the same visions, we are able to offer unique value-adds to our demanding clientele", states Stephanie Hilgers, Director of Partner Marketing at Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts. "Until now all our partners were airlines and credit card companies, so we are especially proud to now deal with an exclusive car rental partner."

Simon Palethorpe, Group Commercial Director, Avis Europe says: "We're looking forward to working with Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts and building on the synergies between our brands. Like the international hotel chain with Swiss heritage, we are focussed on providing additional and enhanced services to our customers, together with the highest levels of customer services, across global networks."
