Top Tips For Doing Business With Avis Budget Car Rental, LLC:

  • Please remember to register first with ABCR’s Supplier Diversity team. We’re very proud of our accomplishments in working with your organization and others and this is a critical first step.
  • ABCR works closely with our Supplier Diversity team where we draw from our pool of registered diverse suppliers, and the relationships they maintain with other professional associations such as WBENC, so membership in these associations is beneficial for our mutual growth.
  • If you are also certified as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise supplier (“DBE”), when opportunities present themselves at airports, by registering with specific airports to become an Airport Certified Disadvantaged Business Enterprise supplier (“ACDBE”), this may also broaden the scope of opportunities for ABCR to contract with you.
  • Please be as competitive with your pricing as you can be. In certain cases we may look to include diverse suppliers in large bids, while in other bids, they may be with your peer class of diverse suppliers only, so price may be a more of a factor.
