Avis introduces portable Wi-Fi rental

Avis has announces the launch of a pilot service at Edinburgh airport, giving customers mobile connectivity while on-the-go.

The portable hotspots will give Avis customers instant internet access whilst in the UK, allowing easy access to emails, documents and social networking sites for £8.50 per day.

The new service can be booked through Avis’ call centres and the portable hotspots collected at the Avis branch at Edinburgh Airport. Users can connect to up to five devices at once, enabling several passengers to use the internet at the same time.

Kaye Ceille, managing director, Avis Budget UK comments: “Internet access is becoming essential for business and leisure travellers and an increasing number of people require daily internet access whilst abroad to contact the office, read their emails or simply keep up to date with news and friends and family via social networking sites.

“Avis’ Mobile Wi-Fi product means that Avis customers can benefit from ‘being connected’ without the risk of high charges or the worry of unexpected bills on arrival home. We hope our customers will take the opportunity to try this new product which is a cheap and convenient solution to keeping in touch.”
