Low-cost carrier Norwegian has partnered with car rental service Avis to offer their shared customers loyalty points and perks.

Members of loyalty scheme Norwegian Reward who book through Avis will receive points and up to 15 per cent discount. They can also add an additional driver for free.

Frequent Norwegian flyers will soon be allowed to join benefit programmes Avis Preferred Plus tier, Avis Preferred loyalty scheme and the Avis President Club, depending on how often they fly.

Brede Huser, Managing Director at Norwegian Reward, said: “With more than eight million Reward members worldwide saving money on Norwegian flights, adding car rental to their holidays can provide even more relief to their wallets thanks to our new partnership with Avis.”

Avis was named Best Car Rental Company Worldwide at the Business Traveller Awards 2018 earlier this month, voted for by our readers. Norwegian came second in the Low Cost Airline category.

The airline is set to launch a new route to Tampa, Florida at the end of October.
