Welcome to Avis

Continental Cover

European car hire coverage

Updated 21 August, 2020:

We are suspending all Continental Cover crossing the channel to France, Holland, Belgium and Spain. Continental cover is still available for UK rental cars (not Vans) leaving the mainland to Ireland or Scandinavia.  It is still your responsibility to ensure you are able to comply with the regulations in the countries you intend to travel through. Further information about our Continental Cover can be found below.

This protection package provides you with a Green Card, proof that your insurance offers at least the minimum cover required in the country you’re driving in. It also includes worry-free 24-hour breakdown assistance.

Please note that Continental Cover is only available at selected UK car hire locations for cars only, and you may only take the car to specified countries (listed below). The car must be returned back to the UK as one-way rentals are not permitted.  It is not possible to take vans out of the UK at present.

To arrange cover, please email Avisbudget.Ukoperations@abg.com at least five days ahead of collection providing your reservation number and details of where you are travelling to.

To arrange cover for Avis Prestige vehicles please call 020 7591 0444 at least five days ahead of collection.
