Avis self-service kiosks

At a growing number of Avis stations across Europe (listed below), you have the opportunity to get to your rental car even faster and more easily.

It all starts by signing up to our free loyalty programme, Avis Preferred. Members can then use the Avis app to complete their biometric verification. This means we don't need to do any paperwork at the counter.

Shortly before you arrive at an Avis station, you'll receive a QR code. Scan it at the self-service kiosk, enter your date of birth, and collect the keys for your vehicle. You will be on your way in seconds.
