This is good news. I believe this is the first agreement PIA has had with a car rental company, correct me if I am wrong.

They are both pretty much the same, my dad has memberships in both I think. Not too different from each other.

I beg to differ. I refuse to use Hertz now even though my company has a corporate agreement with Hertz. Avis customer service (at least in Europe) is much better.
