Car Rental Company Offers Wireless Internet Service


Take note all you frequent business and leisure travelers: Avis Rent A Car System is now offering wireless Internet service to use in its rented cars and hotel rooms.

According to its press release, the new Avis Connect service costs $10.95 per day and can transmit a Wi-Fi signal to multiple laptops and other mobile devices at the same time.

The program is now available at the San Francisco International Airport and will be offered in the coming weeks at Avis airport locations in San Jose, Oakland, Los Angeles and Newark, followed in the third quarter at airport locations in Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Miami, New York, San Diego and Seattle.

The service may be unnecessary for those of us with smartphones, but if your hotel doesn't have wifi, it might be a simple and less expensive alternative than paying for wifi in your hotel room. It would also be ideal for long road trips.
