in Your Trunk
18, 2007 - If you're a mobility scooter user requiring
the use of a rental car for your next trip, your travel
plans have just been made easier! Hot on the heels of
our successful, "Scooter in Your Trunk" rental
program, Scootaround customers can now book Avis rental
vehicles directly from the Scootaround website. This
will save not only save you time but you'll also be
able to take advantage of special customer pricing on
all Avis vehicle rentals.
original scooter-in-your-trunk concept was developed
to answer the scooter/rental car question. Customers
would often ask us if their Scootaround rental scooter
would fit in the trunk of the motor vehicle they were
planning to rent. In keeping with our goal to provide
a full range of mobility products and services, we worked
together with the team in the Avis Cares program to
develop a joint scooter/motor vehicle rental program
in a selected group of cities.
original rental program offered three and four-wheeled
transportable scooters. These units are lightweight,
extremely sturdy and offered the very latest in technology
and safety features. Typical transportable models are
well suited for travelers up to 300lbs and travel for
up to ten miles on a single charge. This proved to be
a popular choice since the scooters could be disassembled
in minutes for easy transport in most mid-sized vehicles.
As the program grew, we began offering different types
of scooters, based on the specific needs of the customer.
If your motor vehicle will stow the scooter, Scootaround
will provide the rental.
this idea caught on with our rental customers, they
began asking about Scootaround/Avis rentals in other
locations. After additional planning and program development,
we began offering the scooter rental program in 48 major
US centers. To add to this extended coverage, we also
began providing Avis vehicle rentals directly from our
7-day call center and via the www.scootaround.com website.
This means that rental customers can now save time by
calling Scootaround directly for their combination scooter/motor
a result, we've helped provide many satisfied customers
with scooter and motor vehicle "combos" from
Washington to Maine (and many places in between). As
the exclusive provider of mobility scooter rentals at
these select Avis locations, we are happy to be a part
of Avis Cares and look forward to developing new ways
to make your travels plans the best they can be.
