Buddy the Budget Car Rental mascot dog is going on the road on a mission to raise travel agent awareness of the new Avis Budget Group agent portal, Beep. Buddy is reminding agents that Budget cars can now be booked in addition to Avis Car Rental through the trade with commission — and agents still have time to win a Fiat 500 in a booking incentive prize draw. Buddy was introduced to the trade at the launch of Beep in June; Beep is a new website that brings together sister brands Avis Car Rental and Budget Car Rental on the same platform for convenient one-stop shopping for travel professionals.  The new portal also features destination and driving guides and training tools for agents. Pictured left to right from Avis Budget Group’s UK leisure team are Katy Stanborough, Maria Pierce and Rebecca Godwin
