Somebody at Avis deserves recognition. They went the extra mile in negotiating a package with Scootaround to the benefit of many rental car customers. From their press release:
PARSIPPANY, N.J., June 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Avis Rent A Car System, LLC today announced a new pilot program that will give customers the ability to rent a mobility scooter and have it waiting in the trunk of their next rental vehicle or delivered to the customer's location. Mobility scooters are four-wheeled, lightweight, battery-operated transportable units that are well suited for travelers up to 250lbs. The program rolls out at two of the nation's most frequented leisure and convention destinations -- Las Vegas and Orlando. Avis is the first rental car company to offer mobility scooters combined with vehicle rentals.
Mobility scooters are most popular with older travelers and those with disabilities and are the latest addition to Avis Access®, the company's suite of products for travelers with disabilities. Avis Access was launched in 2003 and it debuted as the nation's first comprehensive program for travelers with disabilities. Other components of Avis Access are transfer boards, hand controls, spinner knobs, panoramic mirrors and swivel seats.
