5th June 2015

Car rentals  and ground transport solutions from Flightline Business Travel Agency Qatar Airways and Iberia Airlines have joined together with the car rental company Avis Budget Group for new loyalty deals.

Iberia Plus and Avis Preferred loyalty scheme

Last month, the Spanish airline Iberia announced a new partnership agreement with Avis Budget Group, which has become the exclusive car rental partner of the airline’s loyalty programme, Iberia Plus.

The partnership offers Iberia Plus members the opportunity to earn Avios for every rental booked. Iberia Plus Members can earn:

  • 750 bonus Avios points when they make their fourth rental each year.
  • 500 Avios points when a member signs up to the Avis Preferred loyalty scheme.

Customers who sign up to Avis Preferred and rent with Avis twice a year can take advantage of a free vehicle upgrade voucher and a money-off voucher.  If customers hire one more vehicle in the same year, they receive a free weekend’s rental in Europe.

Additional benefits of the partnership agreement contain a free additional driver on all rentals and priority service at Madrid airport service counters.

Qatar Privilege Club and Avis First

Qatar Airways teamed up with Avis Budget Group for a new loyalty partnership agreement in April. Qatar Airways and Avis are currently offering a promotion which allows Privilege Club members to earn quadruple Qmiles on car rentals until June 30 in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Members of the airline’s frequent flyer scheme ‘Privilege Club’ can earn a minimum of 500 and a maximum of 800 Qmiles for every car rental they book with Avis. However, you have to be a member of the Avis First invitation-only rewards program.  The amount of miles earned depends on your Avis First membership tier level.

Customers can redeem Qmiles for flights, travel incentives such as upgrades and excess baggage on Qatar Airways flights and for flights from other members of Oneworld alliance partner, including airlines such as airberlin, American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Finnair, Iberia, Japan Airlines, LAN, TAM Airlines, Qantas, Qatar Airways, Royal Jordanian, Siberian Airlines or Sri Lankan Airlines.
