AVIS Car Rental

We have obtained discounted rates for car hire with AVIS.

Simply follow the link (below) and our Avis Worldwide Discount Number (AWD D594021) will be applied to the booking automatically.

Avis link 2017 Annual CATAP Workshop & Conference

If you prefer to call AVIS, their number is 1 (800) 331-1600. To make reservations, attendees should provide the AVIS reservations agent with this AWD number (D594021) to ensure they receive the best available car rental rates.

The AWD discounted prices will be valid from seven days prior to the event until seven days after the event. Of course, you can book at any time and should do so ASAP to avoid disappointment.

Car/Ride Share

We are working to put together a resource for attendees to share rides/rental car costs, for which they have independently hired. The idea would be that if you've rented a car and have (for example) 3 extra spaces you could offer up those spaces to attendees who would then join your car and share the rental costs with you. If you don't rent a car then, you can always join someone else's car with free spaces. The link to this resource will be posted asap.
