Avis UK unlocks unforgettable driving experiences with DS 5


Avis Car Rental has become the first and only car rental company to welcome the latest model from the French automobile brand DS, the new DS 5, to its fleet. Avis customers looking to experience the brand new, stylish and technologically advanced new DS 5, can now rent the latest addition to Avis’ UK fleet from a number of locations across the country, from £106 per day*.

Sixty years after the launch of the original DS, the all-new model brings to life everything the original stood for, with pioneering features and design. Avis customers renting the flagship DS 5 model will benefit from a touchscreen computer interface, ‘cockpit’ style driving position and electric massage seats. The addition complements Avis’ premium fleet of quality, high specification vehicles designed for the driving enthusiast.

Speaking of the new addition to the fleet, Nina Bell, Avis Budget Group Managing Director for the Northern EMEA Region said: “We’re really proud to be the only car rental company to offer the DS 5 to our customers. Like us, Avis customers are passionate about motoring experiences, so we know they will enjoy taking this pioneering model for a test drive. It’s a great addition to our fleet, which has makes and models to suit every driving enthusiast.”

The DS 5 is available as a guaranteed make and model until 30th September. Participating locations include London Euston, London Marble Arch, London Victoria, London Waterloo, and London Westfield Shepherds Bush. Customers need to simply book in the same way they would normally do, and specify the DS 5 when choosing their vehicle. For more information, visit https://www.avis.co.uk/ds-5-test-drive.
