Sirius XMAvis Budget Group announced that the satcaster is now available as a premium add-on across a majority of its Avis and Budget car rental fleets. More than 60% of its rentals now have factory-installed satellite radio receivers. The in-dash access to SiriusXM replaces the portable plug and play satellite radio previously offered to Avis and Budget renters.


“SiriusXM continues to be a popular ancillary service with Avis and Budget customers,” said Tom Gartland, president, North America, Avis Budget Group. “Giving our customers access to factory-installed satellite radio not only adds convenience, it is also operationally more efficient. We no longer have to keep track of free-standing units because now we can simply activate the service in the vehicle for customers who add it to their rental.”

SiriusXM is available at major airports and select off-airport locations, including Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, Ore., Salt Lake City, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis and Washington, DC. The service is available for $6.99 for the first rental day, and $3.99 for each additional rental day; $19.99 per week (rentals of five to seven days); and a maximum of $29.95 per rental.
