Avis is proud to announce the launch of its new location at Heathrow Airport Terminal 5, making Avis customers the first to be served at the terminal since its opening.

With the doors officially opening on 9th April 2013, this new car hire location will ensure customers experience a swift transition from plane to car and a speedy onward journey. In fact, by renting with Avis at Terminal 5 (T5), customers will be able to save an average of 15 minutes on their travel time* to other rental locations at the main airport.

To make the process even more rapid, customers who are part of Avis’ loyalty scheme, Avis Preferred, will be able to enjoy a whole host of benefits at the terminal including:

  • Priority Avis Preferred counters
  • “3 Minute Promise” from arriving at the desk to collecting keys
  • Pre-prepared paperwork
  • Cars parked in the most convenient spaces

With 190,100** passengers expected to pass through T5 every day during the busy May bank holiday period, both leisure and business renters alike will be able to enjoy the convenience of a hassle-free onward journey.

With British Airways and Iberia exclusively operating at T5, customers will also benefit from Avis’ partnership with both airlines, earning Avios points on all Avis rentals.
