Benefits of renting a car
Wherever you go on holiday or on business, renting a car makes things a whole lot easier. You can pick your car up at the airport, put your luggage in the back and away you go!
Renting a car means that you can enjoy the scenery at your own pace. You do not have to rely on public transport or taxis, and you can take everything you need for the beach, a day out or a business meeting without having to carry it a long way. It gives you the freedom to explore at your own pace. If you discover that secluded little cove where no-one is around then you don't have to worry about missing the last bus - you can stay as long as you like and enjoy your own private piece of paradise.
Thoughts of going home can be really stressful - remembering to pack everything, making sure you have your tickets and passports, getting to the airport on time - but with an Avis car you do not have to rely on that over-crowded bus, or worry about the train being late. And if you take our Fuel Up Front product, you won't even have to worry about filling up the car on the way.

Flight numbers are important!
Here's a tip for you... When you're hiring from an airport it's important to input your flight number when booking, or tell us your flight number when you book by phone. It means that:
If your flight is delayed we know that you'll be late and will wait for you, even after closing time.
At certain locations with different terminals (like Manchester) we know which side of the airport to have your car waiting.
