Amidst the confusion that has been caused in the travel and tourism markets by the eruption of the Icelandic volcano, many consumers are in the dark about how to obtain refunds on car hire bookings they will be unable to fulfil.

Here at Avis Car Hire we are happy to announce that we are taking steps to ensure our customers are not out of pocket due to the unforeseeable events of the last 36 hours. Avis will be waiving the Non Cancellation Fee that customers face if they fail to turn up to collect their vehicle – a cost of £40 per vehicle – as well as offering full refunds to pre-paying customers who contact their local customer service centre.

We are keen to help our customers get to their destination wherever possible and this move is designed to minimise the impact of these extraordinary events.

If you need to cancel or modify your booking please visit the air traffic disruption page on our website.

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.
