At Avis, we have a wide range of customers. We rent to companies, individuals, holidaymakers, business travellers and many others in between. And occasionally, we deal with people you may have heard of.

In my time with Avis, I’ve dealt with Lords, Ladies, Members of Parliament, actors, TV stars, comedians, musicians and even a sportsman or two. In fact, a few years ago, Avis provided cars to several Formula One teams. Every season, you could follow the races around the world by where these guys were renting. However, despite the fact that these guys liked to drive fast round the track, they always took impeccable care of their Avis cars and returned them in pristine condition.

But, we love it when our staff tell us of their latest “star spot”. One that’s been brought to our attention is from the staff at our Manchester Piccadilly location. A recent multi award winning Film Director dropped in the other day to pick up a car, only days before he jetted off to the Oscars. He brought in some of his awards to show the staff and we only hope he pops in again to show us his latest one.

It seems that award winning Film Directors love award winning Car Rental companies!

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.
