Michael Schumacher (centre) with Emma Done (left) and Donna O’Hara (right)We are the official car rental partner to Silverstone, which means I get free tickets to the British Grand Prix! I’ll be there on Sunday as, for the second year in a row (see some of my team with Michael Schumacher last year on the left), Avis is providing the cars for the chauffeur-driven shuttle service that picks up VIPs, team members and officials arriving by helicopter to take them to their trackside destination. It’s a non-stop job as the Silverstone heliport becomes the busiest airport in the world for just that day, which is one of the reasons we decided to offset the carbon footprint of the shuttle cars this year.

Now I may be French but, like many other people, I’ve got caught up in all the excitement surrounding Lewis Hamilton. It would be great if he won on his Formula 1 debut in his home country. Bonne chance Lewis!

Launching this blog has really sparked my interest in other blogs. One of the best travel related blogs I have found so far is Travel Rants. It provides great tips and insider travel information with posts such as ‘Credit card companies freeze spending whilst abroad’, ‘Don’t loose your head booking your late deal’ and ‘Airline ticket name change debate’. I’ve certainly learnt a thing or two from them! Clicking on the ‘Introduce yourself’ link, the author Darren Cronian seems to have developed a bit of a following as well. If you have an active interest in travel then I’d recommend checking it out.

Why we love to blog

At Avis, we really do try harder. We pioneered blogging in the car rental world and we aim to make our blog much more than just an information source. You can use our blog to ask questions or tell us what’s important to you when you hire a car. We try harder because we care what you think, so we really do value your feedback.

New to car rentals? Our blog gives you tips and advice on getting the most out of your Avis car hire experience. You can find information about booking and hiring your car, safety tips, and eco driving. We also provide driving advice and the latest news about our fleet.

We understand that hiring a car is just one part of your trip, so our blog covers other aspects of holiday and business travel too. Whether you want to know more about business travel hire conditions, access to location and city guides or ideas for families travelling with children, it’s all here.

But that’s just a taster – find out more about the Avis blog.
