Refund (prepaid amount minus the no show fee) will automatically be issued to the card that you prepaid with. Requests for no show refunds may be submitted up to six months after the rental pick up date.
  • Unlike other vehicle rental company or 3rd party websites, an Avis Prepay reservation allows you to make changes at any time, even multiple times, with no fee. Permissible changes include vehicle type, options (GPS, protections, etc.), rental period dates/times and many changes to your rental location.* Changes must be made either on or at the rental counter. At time of change, current rates, taxes and fees apply. *You may change your rental location to any other participating location in your original pick-up country. However, to change to a non-participating location or one outside of the original pick-up country, you must cancel your original reservation (with applicable cancellation fee) and re-book at then current rates.
  • Your quoted rental rate is based on the exact parameters (locations, dated, etc.) of your particular rental. Changing your confirmed reservation parameters could result in a different rate.
  • At time of rental pick-up, location rental qualification rules apply. The name on all rental credentials (license and credit or debit card) must match the name on the reservation. If the names do not match, for security purposes the prepaid reservation must be cancelled and a new reservation made at prevailing rates. A refund request for the cancelled reservation must be made on and $100.00 USD processing fee will apply. Name may not be changed after reservation confirmation.
  • At the time of pick up, driver must present a valid driver's license and credit card (or debit card at participating locations) in the driver's name. A prepaid charge card is not an acceptable credential. All drivers must have a safe driving record.

  • Coupons may be applied to prepay rentals. The rate on the rental and the amount prepaid will not reflect the coupon amount. The value of the coupon will be deducted from the rental charges at time of return. If the final charges are less than the prepaid amount, the customer will receive a refund within 3 business days.
  • Vouchers or Avis rental certificates cannot be used in conjunction with a prepay reservation.
  • Gift Cards (Avis or any other) are not allowed on prepay reservations.
  • Generally, at the time of rental, we'll require a credit card hold of total estimated charges less any prepayment. A prepaid charge card is not accepted for this required hold.
  • Underpayments will be handled at the counter at time of rental return, and overpayments will be refunded after the rental agreement is closed. Unfortunately, we can't promise that your prepaid daily vehicle rate will apply if you change vehicle types, lengthen or shorten your rental period or change your pick up location.
  • Upon returning the vehicle, Avis will process a release of the unused portion of the hold subject to your bank's procedure. This hold may take up to two weeks to be released by your bank.
  • If you have already paid toward your rental using a debit card, we will reverse any hold when the rental is over. The bank, however, may take time to post it back to the account. While this hold is in place, the funds will not be available for your use.
  • If you fail to return the vehicle as agreed, Avis will obtain additional authorizations from your account to cover the rental charges.
  • Avis is not responsible for any returned checks or overdrafts based on this policy.
  • Prepaid Debit/Gift cards are not acceptable methods of credit identification to pick up a car at any location. One of the above mentioned cards must be presented. Prepaid Debit/Gift cards are accepted at time of return only.
  • Positive identification in addition to your driver's license may be required.
  • Extensions or late returns result in additional charges.
  • The equipment/service charges displayed may vary at time of rental pick up.
