Back in 2006 we conducted some research to ask you “if you had the choice of driving any make/model available, what would it be?” – the Audi A4 and A6 scored highest and so, in 2007, we added them to our Select Series fleet.

Have you ever used Avis Select Series and have you enjoyed it? Do you enjo Read More >>

I am pleased to tell you all about Avis UK sponsoring the adventurer James Ketchell as he sets off on his quest to scale Mount Everest for charity. All the money raised will go to the ELIFAR Foundation, a charity set up to improve the lives of profoundly disabled children, and run almost entirely by volunteers.

Well here at Avis Rent a Car we like to think we know a fair bit about travel, so we decided to put this to the test with our new ‘Guess the City’ quiz on Facebook. To play, you need to look at the picture clues and work out which famous city is being referred to. Its not as easy as it sounds! Some of the pictures are somewhat cryptic (one includes a plate of food). I thought I was pretty good at Read More >>

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.
