29 May 2014 by GrahamSmith

Avis mobile deviceCar hire company Avis has today launched a mobile wifi unit across Europe.

The device allows Avis customers to connect up to five devices, including smartphones, tablets, laptops, and other wifi-enabled gadgets, simultaneously.

Costing £8.50 a day, it will also have cross-border connectivity and, in a car hire industry first in Europe, no roaming charges.

Mark Servodidio, managing director at Avis UK, said: "Every year 6.78 million business people make a trip abroad from UK airports to attend that all-important meeting or seal a business deal, so being able to stay connected is an essential part of any business trip.

"With approximately £4.2 billion spent by European business travellers in 2012 just on connectivity, we wanted to make people's lives easier, and give our customers a cost-effective, seamless experience from door-to-door, and a convenient way of staying connected – not just whilst they are in the car."

The wifi unit will give travellers access to 1GB a day worth of internet access and a download speed of 21.6mbps.
