New York, NY (PressExposure) April 29, 2008 -- For many people, the idea of a car trip without music is unthinkable. From compact disks to MP3 players to satellite radio, travelers always want to bring along the perfect soundtrack for their road trip. Now eMusic, the worldâs largest digital retailer of independent music, is teaming up with Avis to offer free music with every car rental.
Avis renters can choose from eMusicâs vast catalogue of more than three million music tracks and will receive five free tracks for every rental up to four days in length, and ten tracks for rentals more than five days in length. Avis will also offer renters who complete a reservation the eMusic free âDaily Download.â
To help them get the most out of their travel, eMusic and Avis will provide renters with exclusive playlists developed by dedicated âeMusicologistsâ themed for holiday weekends, specific destinations and more. Recent playlists have included âCountry Roads,â featuring Taylor Swift and Patsy Cline, âAmerican Roots,â including jazz and blues masters such as John Coltrane and John Lee Hooker, and a variety of Christmas holiday playlists. Avis customers can also sign up for an eMusic free trial and use the service to discover more great music and audiobooks for their next business or leisure trip, and because eMusic provides all tracks in the universally compatible MP3 format, they can easily transfer those tracks to any digital music device or burn to CD for use in their car, home or portable music player.
eMusic's artists include indie rockers such as Arcade Fire and Spoon, legendary performers Johnny Cash and Creedence Clearwater Revival and seminal jazz masters such as Bill Evans, John Coltrane and Miles Davis. eMusic's long-standing devotion to authentic sounds and adult customers led Avis to partner with the company as its exclusive music partner.
âWeâre always looking for ways to enhance the rental experience and help make trips more enjoyable for customers,â said Becky Alseth, senior vice president of marketing for Avis Budget Group, parent company of Avis. âMusic and driving go hand-in-hand, so eMusic is the perfect way for our customers to find songs to capture the mood of their trip.
