Bahrain's Batelco has signed a deal to put Wi Fi coverage inside Avis rental cars, using its LTE network for the data backhaul.

The service will later be enabled throughout Avis's entire Bahrain based fleet.

In addition, Avis Rent a Car will give extra value to their customers by providing Batelco Prepaid Sim Cards to all those who rent cars from them during the Formula One weekend in Bahrain. The Prepaid Sim cards allow free calls to all Batelco numbers and include data services. Furthermore, Avis will also include a Batelco mobile line as part of the rental package over the Grand Prix weekend.

Mr. Gowtham G said that Avis was delighted to join hands with Batelco to offer the WiFi services for its customers and thanked Batelco for supporting them in their efforts to improve value added benefits for its clients.

"Customers seek high speed Wi-Fi services, especially while travelling, and it is becoming the norm for most people to stay connected through online social networks and instant messaging at all times. Accordingly, we will continue to invest in further improving our services," said Mr. Gowtham G.
