Avis Launches "It's Your Space" Facebook Photo Contest

Contest Grand Prize is a BMW 320i

PARSIPPANY, N.J., July 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Avis is inviting its
customers to show the world how an Avis vehicle becomes "your space" through
an exciting new photo contest on Facebook. Now through August 31, Avis
customers can upload a photo of themselves inside or outside an Avis rental
vehicle for a chance to win a new BMW 320i. The contest is an extension of the
new Avis advertising campaign that debuted earlier this year called "The
Professionals," which features celebrities including chef Thomas Keller,
photographer Nigel Barker, golfer Steve Stricker and athlete Gabby Reece, and
shows how each one uses an Avis rental car as "their space" to meet their
specialized needs.

"Connecting with customers on social media helps enhance brand loyalty while
introducing new consumers to Avis Car Rental," said Jeannine Haas, chief
marketing officer, Avis Budget Group. "The 'It's Your Space' Facebook contest
is designed to spark consumer interest and enthusiasm for Avis and help people
view the many benefits of having an Avis rental car to contribute to their
enjoyment and success on the road."

The "It's Your Space" contest will be promoted at Avis rental locations across
the United States as well as on social media channels, including Facebook,
Instagram and Twitter. Photo submissions will be reviewed for eligibility and
the winner will be chosen by internationally-renowned fashion photographer and
host of "The Face," Nigel Barker. The winning photo will be evaluated on
creativity/originality, quality of submission and theme. Five runners-up will
also be selected. Runners-up will receive a seven-day Avis rental. To enter
