Continental And Avis Turn Renters’ Phones Into Keyless Entry Devices
Renters can now lock/unlock and start the engine from a mobile app
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.
This partnership paves the way for entirely keyless car rental in the future, offering customers more convenience and personalization, while allowing the companies to accelerate their offerings into new markets.
