Car rental company Avis Budget Group and automotive manufacturing company Continental have teamed up to enable travelers in the Kansas City area to test a mobile experience featuring keyless entry and ignition. Selected vehicles in the Avis Car Rental fleet are now fitted with Continental’s Key-as-a-Service technology. Customers can use the Avis mobile app to lock/unlock their rental car and start the engine.
