Transportation

SPP is managed by The Kellen Company. Kellen is an Association Management Company with a portfolio of Trade Associations and Professional Societies. Kellen has partnered with Avis Budget Group as their primary car rental vendors and has extended their special discounts with SPP. Through this partnership, our company will be receiving significant savings and benefits, in addition to negotiated rates and outstanding personalized service. You can enroll in either Avis or Budget, or both!

First, create an Avis or Budget account. For this you'll need your driver's license and credit card ready. You can rent a car without an account, but you'll lose the benefit of skipping the counter. 

If you already have a profile, add Kellen's discount codes, D619101 for AVIS Wizard and D958401 for Budget Fastbreak, to your account to receive the rates and benefits Kellen has already negotiated on your behalf. Negotiated insurances are not included.
