Welcome to Avis


We’ve recently reviewed our standard pre-authorisation amount which covers any additional costs resulting from your rental such as additional days or fuel. As a result the pre-authorisation is now £300 plus the estimated cost of your rental (less any prepaid amount).

What is Pre-Authorisation?

This is a temporary hold on a specified amount against the available funds on your payment card*. Please note - this is not an actual charged amount and no funds are taken.


Your payment card issuer may present a pre-authorisation as a pending transaction.


*Payment card can refer to a credit, charge or debit card.
