How Avis Preferred works for you
Welcome to life in the fast lane
Avis Preferred is our priority member service. Do you want in? It’s quick, simple and completely free to join.
We have tailored rewards to meet your needs ... members can reap benefits like free weekend car hire, faster reservations and rentals, priority service counters and conveniently parked cars.
At some hire stations your car will be waiting with the keys inside, so you can bypass the rental counter entirely.
To join Avis Preferred, all you need is your driving licence and payment card. You also need to be aged 21 or over. Some corporate and partnership accounts may exclude benefits like free upgrades and car rentals – as well as the ability to upgrade through the tiers – but you will still be able to enjoy Avis Preferred priority services.
Our three levels of loyalty
This is how it works: sign up to Avis Preferred, rent with us twice in one year and you get a free vehicle upgrade voucher and a money-off voucher. Hire just one more vehicle that year and a free weekend’s rental in Europe will be yours to enjoy.
Hire with us five times or more (and spend €1,000) within a year and you reach Avis Preferred Plus. This means you get a vehicle upgrade whenever available. Also, we waive the second driver fee and lay on priority car availability.
Hire ten times (spending €2,000) and you join our highest tier, Avis President’s Club. You now earn a guaranteed vehicle upgrade (with double upgrade on weekends where available), free second driver and a guaranteed car.

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. If, on the back of your Avis Preferred card it states “Without MRA”, sign into your account and update your profile to accept our Master Rental Agreement’s terms and conditions and enjoy our streamlined services. 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, please get in touch.
