Cellhire offers even more solutions to Avis customers

In partnership with Avis, Cellhire recently extended its range of mobile solutions offered to all Avis customers from the UK and overseas.

This growth follows the successful launch of the Avis Satellite Navigation Rental service at the end of 2004, which began with a trial at Heathrow Airport and is now available at Manchester, Gatwick, Birmingham and Stanstead airports.

Designed to benefit inbound and outbound business and leisure travellers as well as Avis’ corporate renters, the new, enhanced rental services include:

  • Mobile phone and SIM card rental, enabling users from outside of the UK to save money on national and international calls using local airtime
  • International SIM card rental, enabling users to avoid expensive roaming charges on both incoming and outgoing calls and save money using their own phone overseas
  • 3G data cards for laptops and handheld BlackBerry units for mobile email and internet access


Any customer booking car rental online at can order these latest mobile communications solutions and equipment can be collected from any UK Avis location. Alternatively, Cellhire can deliver direct to hotels, businesses or residential addresses in the UK.

Penny Stoolman, Director of Sales and Marketing, Avis UK says, “Any inbound customer who needs a mobile phone, email or internet access, will benefit from our latest value-added communications services. Similarly, we expect these services will also help corporate customers who require hands-free mobile phone usage for employees when they are travelling on work related business.”

Commenting on the expansion of the partnership, Martyn Stevens, Managing Director, Cellhire UK commented, “We are delighted that we are expanding our successful partnership with Avis, providing innovative mobile communication services to customers from the UK and abroad. With the highest commitment to quality, convenience and customer service guaranteed, our partnership enables customers to stay in touch for less throughout their trip.”
