AVIS GETTING AGGRESSIVE: Avis seems to be accumulating a lot of attention lately, as it asserts its rental and chauffeured vehicle services.
The global travel community has just named Avis its favored rental vehicle company. Its 40% stake in Carey and foray into South Florida chauffeured markets are giving chauffeured operators fits, since Avis doesn't have to play by the same rules.
Look for coverage on the escalating battle in South Florida on LCT's e-newsletter and future issue of LCT Magazine.
The NLA, the Florida Limousine Association, the West Florida Limousine Association, and the Florida Ground Transportation Associaton have created a strong, united front on tackling this issue that could have unprecedented consequences for passenger safety, regulatory integrity, and future operator business models. More to come in LCT -- online and in print. -- M.R.
