Avis car rental will be offering a special cash back rewards to Amazon members, with a bigger incentive provided to clients who book through Amazon Alexa

Last year, Avis and Amazon partnered on an Alexa skill that allowed users to make and confirm reservations as well as request receipts. Avis recently announced plans to continue the relationship by offering Amazon members who use its rental service an Amazon gift card.

If the members book the car in traditional fashion, they will receive a card worth 10% of their rental price. Those who choose to book the rental through Alexa will do even better, receiving a card worth 20% of the rental price.

According to Avis SVP of Sales, Beth Kinerk, the hope for the initiative is that “these great incentives encourage more people to try our offerings including our Amazon Alexa booking tool. We are excited to work with Amazon to offer their customers a valuable benefit when they rent with Avis.”

Through this partnership, Avis hopes to differentiate itself in the crowded car rental space, while Amazon hopes to encourage wider usage of its voice-recognition technology.
