Press Release

The great American family vacation is more fun in a Budget Rental Car equipped with SiriusXM
Parsippany, N.J. Aug 11, 2015 -

Do you ever struggle to keep the kids entertained when in the car? Are you ever annoyed that you can't find a "good" radio station with family-friendly content when you're traveling? Do you ever wonder what the traffic conditions are in an unfamiliar city? Budget Car Rental has the solution - select SiriusXM on your next rental.

SiriusXM is available in the majority of vehicles in the Budget fleet across the United States. The factory-installed in-dashboard satellite radios provide renters with easy access to programming for every member of the family, including commercial-free music; plus premier sports talk and live events; comedy for the family and adults only; live news; exclusive talk and entertainment; and a wide variety of Latin music, sports and talk programming in radio.

"Budget renters appreciate value and that's exactly what SiriusXM provides," said Sonny Ritacca, vice president, ancillary sales, Avis Budget Group. "There is something for everybody, including channels for the kids, like Radio Disney, KIDZ BOP Radio, or Kids Place Live, top 40 hits on SiriusXM Hits 1, or live news that informs, entertains and inspires on TODAY Show Radio. There is also sports programming for those who want to hear their favorite team no matter where they go, frequent updates on traffic conditions and weather for major traffic markets across the country, and a whole lot more. We encourage customers to select SiriusXM when making reservations."

Budget renters also have access to SiriusXM's full premium satellite radio lineup, including Howard Stern, every NFL® and MLB® game, every NASCAR® race, NBA® and NHL® games, PGA TOUR® coverage and more.

SiriusXM is available from Budget at major airport and select off-airport locations, including Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, Ore., San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis and Washington, D.C.
