Things you need to know when driving an Avis rental car

Once you've left the Avis Branch there are a few things you need to keep in mind which could reduce complications should you find yourself in an unfortunate situation.

We all know that plans don't always follow the preferred path. In the unlikely event that you run into any unforeseen circumstances keep this in mind. 

Roadside Assistance 
Avis have a 24hr breakdown service. If your vehicle has broken down and you need assistance, details of the toll-free number can be found on the rental agreement wallet displayed inside the vehicle.

If you are involved in an accident, be sure to take the insurance details of all parties involved, and take note of exactly how it happened. We will require the insurance details, and we will ask you to draw a diagram of the incident. If the vehicle is unsafe to drive please contact our roadside assistance. If the car is safe to drive please proceed on your journey but make the Avis branch aware of the incident.

If your plans change, and you would like to keep the vehicle an extra few days, please inform the location as soon as possible. This way we have sufficient time to source another vehicle for any booking the extension may affect.

Take a look at the local Driving Regulations
We have put together the rules of the road for Europe and North America. Avis Road Rules gives you an overview of country regulations when driving abroad. We have covered key information like speed limits, child safety laws and emergency contact numbers.
