Rent a car with Avis

Avis has several programs geared to frequent travelers that can save you both time and money when you need to rent a vehicle. The advantage of Avis compared to many other rental car companies is that it’s free to enroll in their special programs.

Avis offers top quality customer service at 4,400 locations worldwide. Avis’ fleet of GM cars are equipped with the latest features for your safety and comfort. Here is an overview of some of the programs that Avis has to offer.

Avis Preferred Service
This free program allows you to skip the lines, as well as the paperwork and go straight to your car. By enrolling in the program, Avis will also keep your rental preferences on file, so you don’t have to repeat them each time you make a reservation.

When you arrive at Avis, you don’t have to go inside the office, the courtesy bus will just drop you off at one of their newest cars and you can be on your way. The lowest mileage cars in the Avis fleet and the best parking spots are reserved for Preferred Service members.

Avis Preferred Service members with 12 or more qualifying rentals or 35 or more qualifying days in one calendar year will get automatically upgraded to Avis First – the company’s invitation-only program.

Avis First
This program has some of the best benefits in the car rental industry. Benefits include continued Preferred Service, plus the following perks:

  • Free two-day weekend rentals with every third rental
  • Free upgrades when available
  • A dedicated 800 number and members-only website

Avis Corporate Awards Program
If you are the owner of a small or medium-sized business, Avis Corporate Awards Program is a terrific option for you. This free program offers special rates and discounts, the ability to earn free rentals and top-notch customer service for frequent business travelers.

Unlike other rental car companies, which charge an annual fee for their corporate program, Avis Corporate Awards is free to join. When you enroll, Avis will assign your company an Avis Worldwide Discount (AWD) number. With this number, your employees can easily reserve cars at the corporate discount. For your convenience, Avis will send you one monthly statement of all rental charges for your company through its Central Billing Program.

Other Programs
Avis provides discounts for government employees, and for hundreds of different associations and affiliates. Avis also has a lease program, if you need to rent a car for more than 30 days.
