Avis and Accor have joined BA in offering free car rentals, hotel stays and flights to SMEs as part of the Backing Britain campaign.
The airline announced earlier this week that it would be offering 5,000 return flights (worth up to £15m) to help small and medium entreprises (SMEs) win business abroad, in association with UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) and British American Business (BAB).
Now Avis has joined the scheme, offering 1,500 free car rental days to customers joining, or already part of, Avis Business Solutions – a bespoke rental scheme for small businesses. Meanwhile Accor Hotels has offered 5,000 free room nights for members of its Accor Away on Business scheme.
The organisations are currently agreeing terms and conditions of the offer with UKTI and BAB, with the details due to be unveiled in the next few days.
