Flying somewhere for a little rest and relaxation this summer? You’ll probably need a rental car when you land. And if you’re a frequent Amazon shopper, you’re gonna love this deal.

With Avis’ new Amazon benefits program, Amazon customers can get an Amazon gift card worth 10% of their Avis rental car purchase once the rental is complete.

Have an Echo? The deal’s even sweeter. If you book your rental through Avis’ Alexa skill, you’ll get a gift card worth 20% of your purchase.

And before you ask: No, you don’t need to be a Prime member to take advantage of this deal.

So, how does Avis know you’re an Amazon customer — besides the fact that everyone is? You’ll have to head over to Avis’ website and log in with Amazon. Once you allow Avis.com to confirm your account, you’ll be prompted to create a profile on Avis or link an existing account.

The website also touts that you can save 30% off base rates, and can use other coupon offers, with your Amazon benefits.

Once you return the car, your gift card will be sent to the email associated with your Amazon account within 48 hours.
