Avis offers chauffeurs in Mexico's capital

MEXICO CITY -- Clients who need to rent a car here can leave the driving to a chauffeur if they choose Avis.

Avis offers chauffeur-driven rental cars at its nine locations in the Mexican capital.

Isabel Solis Preve, regional sales manager for Avis Mexico, said the company has been offering the service for the past two years.

"This service was launched for the comfort and safety of the customer," Preve said. Avis is the only car rental firm that offers the service in Mexico City, she added.

Prices begin around $80 per day, which includes insurance and unlimited mileage. Fuel and taxes are extra. Commission is 5%.

The chauffeur is on an eight-hour shift, but the rental car is available to the customer for 24 hours.
