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 >>

At Avis we are excited to announce that we are adding the NEW Jaguar XJ to our Avis Prestige fleet. The original Jaguar XJ was a car that epitomised luxury and comfort and those credentials remain unchanged with the new 2010 model. This is Jaguar’s flagship saloon, and the first launch under new owners Tata Motors. The previous model couldn’t help but start to look dated and the new XJ has undergone a radical change from the original body style, which was little changed for 40 year Read More >>

Following on from Barry’s post mentioning particular Cool Cars you’d like to see on fleet, I’d like to introduce what could potentially be the future of practically zero emission transport, although I’ll leave it up to you to judge whether or not it’s a “Cool Car”. With such a high focus lately on low carbon emissions it was only a matter of time before air powered cars became a reality.

The car I’m talking about is the new Porsche Panamera. And the car, one of Porsche’s most anticipated in many years, has not been short of rave reviews despite the bold steps that has been taken. Stuart Birch of the Telegraph states that the “steering is beautifully weighted, brakes massiv Read More >>
