The amount of the pre-authorisation taken on pick-up of the rental vehicle is calculated as follows:
 
The vehicle rental price* + €300** (or the equivalence in the local currency) MINUS any sum you have already paid when making a “Pay Now” booking. 
 
* The "vehicle rental price" includes the vehicle rental cost and all optional extras you’ve requested, calculated at the start of the rental based on the intended length of the rental. For the avoidance of any doubt, any “Pay at Location” amount you owe in relation to the vehicle rental (including any optional extras) will be included as part of the pre-authorisation and will be charged to you at the end of the rental (using the card provided for the purposes of the pre-authorisation, unless agreed otherwise).
 
** If you buy our “Fuel Up Front” product, we will reduce the €300 by the amount we charge you for the “Fuel Up Front” product
 
The €300 is included as part of the pre-authorisation in case we have to charge you at the end of the rental for any of the following: 
 
i.    costs to refuel the vehicle (where relevant); 
ii.    additional rental charges in circumstances where you fail to return the vehicle or any optional extras at the end of the agreed rental period [or to the agreed return location]; 
iii.    any additional charges or fines you incur relating to your use of the vehicle (which we have been notified of prior to you returning the vehicle, which will include, for example, charges relating to traffic violations); and/or 
iv.    costs incurred as a result of exceeding any relevant mileage restrictions. 

Where the pre-authorisation we take does not cover the charges you incur, we will request you make a further payment for the additional amounts owed.

When you complete your rental and return the vehicle, we will charge your card and the pre-authorisation hold will be released by your card issuer.

As the pre-authorisation hold is not a charge, the release of funds may not appear on your card statement. Please note – even though the hold is not an actual charge, it still temporarily reduces the available balance on your payment card until its release.

In case of any further queries, please use the contact button and link below to submit a ticket with our customer care team and you will receive an email with the details of your authorisation hold.

We offer a number of coverage packages to reduce your liability however, stay vigilant as you will not be covered should you leave your hire vehicle with the keys in it. Your booking quote and rental agreement will identify your liability level and our local representatives will also be happy to discuss your available upgraded coverage options when you collect your vehicle.

We offer many cars in different styles and sizes, so you can hire the perfect model for your journey. These cars belong to various groups, such as Group A or Group J.
Ordering cars into groups helps us provide a premium service, because there is never any confusion over the car you are hiring and whether you're eligible to drive it. Sometimes you're only eligible to hire cars from certain groups. For example, in the UK if you hire a car under the age of 25 you can choose from Group A (such as a Hyundai i10), Group B (such as a Ford Fiesta), Group C (such as a Seat Leon), Group E (such as Vauxhall Astra) or Group I (such as VW Golf Auto).
The car groups also help you understand useful information, such as the amount you pay (the excess) if you're involved in an accident, which can vary from group to group.

We understand you might get delayed, so we try to be flexible. If you’re running late or need to extend your car rental, please make sure you contact us as soon as possible. Should you return the vehicle late – without notifying us or extending your hire – you may be subject to a late return fee. If you fail to extend the rental and you are more than 29 minutes late returning the vehicle, your rental will be extended and you will be charged an extra day’s rental at current pay at location prices plus a late return processing fee for each day or part of a day until the vehicle is returned.

If you overrun past your agreed return date and time, you will incur a late return fee. If you still haven’t returned the vehicle 24 hours later, then another late return fee will be applied. A late return fee will continue to be added every 24 hour period thereafter, until you return the vehicle to the rental station.
Depending on the country of rental, the daily late return fee will be (inclusive of VAT): £15.00/CHF 20.00/150.00 (DKR, NKR or SKR)/between €15 and €18.60 (country dependent), or the equivalent amount in local currency.

Yes, of course. We understand you want to share the joy with others so we make it easy for you to add another driver. Your additional driver will simply follow the same hire rules as you.

The amount you'll pay will be in your online quote. In some countries, drivers who share a surname don't have to pay more. The amount varies by country and will be clear when you book your hire vehicle online.

"We know that our customers hire vehicles for many different reasons, and have many different refueling needs. For your convenience, we offer 4 different refueling options:

– Bring Back Full If you bring the vehicle back full, or at the same level as the vehicle was picked up at, there won't be any charge. If there happens to be any missing fuel at the start, and it isn't the same as your rental agreement, please let one of our staff know or take a picture if you are in a hurry.

– Fuel Up Front This option allows you to purchase a full tank of fuel at a lower price per litre than our Pay on Return rates. You pay one flat fee for any amount of fuel, so try to return it as close to empty as you can to get the best value. If the vehicle is returned full, we do not charge you for Fuel Up Front.

– EZ Fuel If you drive for 75 miles (120 km) or less you can pre-pay a flat fee and we will take care of refuelling. If you choose to refuel yourself, please keep the receipt and present it when you return the vehicle.

– Pay On Return If you don’t have the time to refuel and haven’t taken Fuel Up Front, we can do it for you. Please keep in mind that this will incur a small fee. Want some more information?

This is to help protect your child in a collision because normal seat belts are designed to fit adults in the stronger shoulder and hip areas. Unfortunately normal seat belts support a child in the wrong place.

Yes. You can pay using Visa and MasterCard debit cards. There are a few exceptions: One credit card and one debit card may be required at the counter for higher-value vehicles in the UK. The Maestro card is only accepted in Germany. PREPAID cards are accepted online however they are not accepted at the counter which means a non-PREPAID card must be shown at the rental station (together with the PREPAID card). A PREPAID card can be used to pay for the rental at the end of the vehicle hire. Please refer to our location specific terms and conditions for additional information on payment options. Remember, the name on the card must match the driving licence of the main driver. Someone else can't pay on your behalf. And don't forget to bring your payment card when you collect your rental.

Your excess is your financial responsibility, or amount you would pay, in the event of damage or theft occurring to the vehicle. The amount you pay depends on the vehicle you hire, which country you hire it in and whether you choose to reduce the excess by upgrading your level of cover. When you hire a vehicle with us, you'll automatically receive third party, vehicle damage (Collision Damage Waiver) and vehicle theft cover to safeguard you on your journey. If you book on the US website you may find that vehicle damage and vehicle theft cover are not included, as some American credit cards provide insurance for car hire. Third party cover is the basic level you need to hire a vehicle, that's why we always include it. Should you damage another vehicle or passengers and their property, you won't have to pay for repairs or injuries. But, if you damage the vehicle you will still need to pay a fixed excess fee unless you upgrade your cover. Find out how much you pay depending on what you hire and where you hire it. We also offer Personal Accident Insurance in case you're injured in an accident.

It is standard that the charge for tolls arrives a few weeks following the end of your rental, as we must wait for the charge details to be provided by the toll authorities.

When a traffic offence occurs, we are notified by the relevant authorities as the registered owner of the vehicle in order to identify the driver of the vehicle. Whenever possible, liability is transferred to the driver of the vehicle at the time of the offence and the authorities re-issue the Penalty/Parking Charge Notice to the driver. We charge an administration fee to cover our costs involved in this process. Following a liability transfer, the authorities contact the driver directly by post with the re-issued fine. Rest assured, the dates of fine payment are updated so that the driver is not affected by the time taken to transfer liability. In some circumstances, liability cannot be transferred and the fine is paid on your behalf by us. The lowest possible fine amount is paid and is charged directly to the customer. Please note, to dispute an offence, the authorities must be contacted directly. Details of the dispute process and all contact details for the authority will be detailed on the re-issued penalty charge notice that you will receive.

The Premium Location Fee, which is included in your booking quote, helps to cover the extra operating costs incurred at premium locations such as airports, train stations and city centres.

For clarity, this is itemised on the rental agreement and invoice. Don't worry, this is not a duplicate charge and the itemised line may include the quoted portion from booking as well as any portion for additional selected items.

You pay for each day you hire a vehicle, which is based on a 24 hour rental period. If you return your hire vehicle within 24 hours, you'll still be charged for the full day.

Book a Select Series vehicle (not currently available in the UK) and the car you pick is the car you get. On the rare occasion we're unable to provide the exact model, we'll refund its cost. We understand you'll still need the extras you chose for your journey, so these won't be refunded. In addition to a refund for your hire vehicle, you will also receive another hire car. We will try our best to provide you with an equally premium model, dependent upon availability. Remember to book your vehicle at least 72 hours ahead to ensure we have time to prepare your desired model. Unfortunately we can't guarantee you will get to drive the exact model you desire any sooner than this. Any refund is therefore subject to you booking at least 72 hours before your journey.

Avis Fast Track is a new service we offer to customers who book directly with us at some of our busiest stations.

We offer a Fast Track product at Heathrow Terminal 2, which for £19.99 allows you to collect your car from just outside the Terminal Building, rather than taking our shuttle bus to our main Heathrow station.

You can pay for Fuel Up Front when you collect your hire vehicle. This simply means that you pay for a full tank of fuel upfront, saving you the hassle and time of refuelling before you return. This not only saves time but also money, because we offer a discounted rate compared to our fuel on return rates. If you choose Fuel Up Front but bring your hire vehicle back with a full tank, don’t worry, we won’t charge you for Fuel Up Front. But if you bring it back partly full, unfortunately we can’t provide a refund and you will be charged the full amount as listed on your rental agreement, so try to return the vehicle as close to empty as possible.

Discover more about Fuel Up Front and your other fuel options.

At the start of your rental, we will ask your card issuer to hold a sum of money for us. This is a temporary hold against the funds you have available on that card. We do not charge your card and no money is taken from your account. Your card issuer will usually present this authorisation hold as a pending transaction that reduces the money you have available to spend.

For further information about the pre-authorisation and the value of the authorisation hold, please click here.

When you complete your rental and return the vehicle, we will charge your card and the pre-authorisation hold will be released by your card issuer. Depending on your card issuer, it can take up to 28 days before this is reflected in your account balance. As the pre-authorisation hold is not a charge, the release of funds may not appear on your card statement. Please note – even though the hold is not an actual charge, it still temporarily reduces the available balance on your payment card until its release.

In case of any further queries, please use the contact button and link below to submit a ticket with our customer care team and you will receive an email with the details of your authorisation hold.

This may result in the rental costing you more.

Yes, if the vehicle has been involved in an accident or has sustained damage you must report the accident to the police immediately and to us within 48 hours, even if no third party was involved.

 

To hire a car in the , you need to be at least 19 years of age at the moment of collecting the vehicle and have held a driving licence for at least one year. If you or your additional drivers are under the age of 25, you'll need to pay an extra fee per day. The amount depends on where you hire a car, because the law and insurance terms vary between countries. If the location charges a premium fee, it could cost more. The minimum age you can hire a car also varies from country to country. You can find specific information in our terms and conditions or contact us using the below icons. Under the age of 25, you can hire cars from Group A (e.g. Hyundai i10), Group B (e.g. Ford Fiesta), Group C (e.g. Seat Leon), Group E (e.g. Vauxhall Astra), and Group I (e.g. VW Golf (auto). Check out our fleet to find further information about specific categories. 
There is currently no age maximum, so long as you have had a full, valid, licence for at least 1 year. Some additional steps may be required for those who are over the age of 75 on the date of scheduled return. Check the location specific terms and conditions for the country you are renting for more information on age requirements.

Unfortunately no, the name on the rental agreement, the ""named"" or ""main"" driver, must remain as it has been reserved.  Should the main driver be unable to drive the vehicle or pick up the reservation, the rental must be cancelled and re-booked under the new designated name at current pay at location rates.  Please note that for any cancelled reservations there may be cancellation fees as set out in our booking terms and conditions

If the rental has already begun, you may wish to add an additional driver so that another individual can drive the vehicle, however the named driver cannot be changed.
 

Many city centers in Italy are defined ""Restricted Traffic Zones"". These areas are not accessible to vehicles on certain days or times as prescribed by the relevant traffic authority. Even when driving a rental car it is necessary to respect these restrictions to avoid incurring an administrative penalty.
Some of our stations are near central areas and ""limited traffic areas"" and it is therefore necessary to pay careful attention not to enter the ZTL. Our Florence Via Borgognissanti station, for example, is located near one of these areas. Customers are therefore informed of its presence and of the possibility of returning the vehicle avoiding entry into the ZTL.
If you are not sure whether or not the station is close to a ZTL or which route to take to return the vehicle, do not hesitate to ask.

If you cannot find your rental car keys, please first call our agents at the rental agency (listed on your rental documentation) and report the lost keys. Usually, we have a spare key for vehicles in a central storage location, which is then ordered for you by the agency.

Additionally, there may also be times when we need to have the rental car towed by a breakdown service if the keys cannot be secured otherwise.

You will be responsible for any loss or damage to the rental car keys. The amount of these costs depends on the country of rental. Costs resulting from loss of keys, such as towing service and replacement of the keys, must be paid by the customer.

Recent government measures may have led us to alter the operating hours of some of our rental locations. You can find a complete up to date list of our station openings and their hours here.

Panel – abrasions or surface scratches less than 25mm (1inch) Panel – dents less than 25mm (1inch) Panel – paint stone chips (no dent) less than 3mm. Glass chips less than 3mm. Wheels/scratches less than 25mm Interior/seat tears/burns less than 3mm, carpet tears/burns less than 10mm If further damage was caused to the hire car during your rental, you will be charged in line with industry standards using estimating tools such as Audatex.

Unfortunately, we are unable to fit the seat or arrange for it to be fitted for you. We are of course happy to provide guidelines on how you are able to fix the seat into the vehicle and manufacturers will generally provide guidelines on the seat as well. If your child is under the age of 12 or below 135cm, by law you must use an appropriate seat. This is to help protect your child in an accident, because normal seat belts are designed to fit adults in the stronger shoulder and hip areas. Unfortunately normal seat belts support a child in the wrong place. Find out more about hiring child seats.

If not, we will find your nearest hire station, from where you can continue your journey in a new vehicle. Our telephone number is on your rental agreement or it can be found here.

We always check all tyres during the pre-rental inspection, so the tyres on your hire vehicle will be in a safe condition. However, we understand they may become worn if you hire a vehicle for a longer period. Should this happen, simply contact your nearest hire station and we will replace them.
