Welcome to Avis

Continental Cover

European car hire coverage

Updated 3 November, 2020:

We are suspending the sale of our Continental Cover package for UK rental cars and vans with immediate effect to all locations for the foreseeable future.  If the situation changes, this page will be updated accordingly.   


Further information about our Continental Cover package can be found below – please note this information is for reference only as it’s not possible to purchase Continental Cover at present.

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 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.
