    Our Three Tiers of Loyalty

    With Avis Preferred, the more you rent with us – the more benefits you unlock. We have three levels of membership based on your rental history over the last year, all boasting bigger and better perks as you go.

    When you join, you’ll start as an Avis Preferred member, and can potentially rise to our Avis Preferred Plus (hire 5+ vehicles and spend €1,000) and Avis President’s Club tiers (hire 10+ vehicles and spend €2,000) – with each tier rise valid for one year.

    A little bonus to get you started (helping you reach Avis Preferred Plus status even faster): the ‘loyalty value’ of your rental will go up by €100 if you hire a vehicle within 60 days of registration.

    Please note: This value will be credited within five days of the rental car being returned to us, at which point it can be viewed in your online account. This bonus only applies to new members.

    You will also continue to enjoy the Avis & British Airways Executive Club partnership benefits of Avios on every qualifying rental, and a free additional driver on ever rental, worldwide.

    Track your Tiers, Manage your Bookings

    Once logged in to Avis Preferred you can track your progress up the loyalty tiers (in terms of both number of rentals and total spend), submit any missing rentals to the scheme or just ask us about any questions or concerns you may have. This is your portal to view statements, check booking history, amend your contact details and rental preferences and update credit card information.

    To keep the benefits flowing, it’s important that you stay opted in to receive Avis Preferred newsletters and ensure your profile is complete. Do this and you’ll catch our latest offers and receive your next bundle of reward vouchers. You can also check these preferences in your online account, when you sign in.

    We recommend that you create an online account so that you can manage your personal details. If you’re an existing member, link your Avis Preferred profile to an online account here.

    If you’re an Avis Preferred member but do not have an online account, create one here.
