Suggestion: change the Avis forum to the Avis/Budget forum [Done]

I suggest that the FT Avis forum be changed to the Avis/Budget forum. Avis and Budget are owned by the same parent company, and in many -- though not all -- locations, Avis and Budget share a rental counter and a pool of cars. Both companies have some similar promotions ($9.99 one--ways between some airports and city centers), and coupons (third weekend day free, $10 off $100, $15 off $125, etc.)

When the dedicated Budget forum was closed, discussion of Budget promotions, coupons, etc., was relegated to the general "Rental Car Discussion" forum. I think that it makes more sense for discussion of Avis and Budget matters to be discussed in a single forum.

While there are still some differences between Avis and Budget (especially at locations where they are franchise and have separate fleets), as @guv1976 notes, Budget fits in better with the Avis forum than the others that are put into the 'others' forum.

OK, I'm on board with the change. I've renamed the forums. I'm open to suggestions as to better descriptors. @IAHtraveler, at your convenience, would you move threads?

@SanDiego1K, I'll move the threads tonight/tomorrow. My suggestion for the joint forum would be: "Avis Preferred & Budget Fastbreak".
