Booking a hire car is easier than ever. The Avis app lets you search for vehicles with results filtered by size or features; hone in on rental locations; and see which Avis location is nearest to you.
But if you fancy a different make or model on the day, you can change or upgrade your vehicle the moment you arrive at the rental station. The app's new functionality lets you choose the exact car you want, right when you want it.
Extend your rental
Need to hang on to your rental car? A couple of screen-swipes will get that organised for you, without the bother of contacting the rental station.
Plans can change: check, cancel or amend your booking details at any time; add a driver or secure extra equipment or services.
