Terms & Conditions

Optional Coverages

Acceptance of the Loss Damage Waiver relieves the renter and authorized additional drivers of responsibility for loss of, or damage to the Avis car, when they comply with the terms and conditions listed on the rental document jacket. At the time of rental, the customer must initial whether he/she accepts or declines the LDW and optional services. LDW and optional services must be signed for at the rental counter.
LDW is taxable.

If LDW is not accepted, the customer is financially responsible for the full value of:

  • Accident damage
  • Glass damage
  • Stolen items (radio, battery, etc.)
  • Vandalism
  • Theft of the car

Exceptions:

In Wisconsin, if LDW is not accepted, the renter is liable for all loss or damage to the Avis car due to an accident or reckless, wanton behavior.

In Illinois, if LDW is not accepted, the customer is financially responsible for up to the full value of the vehicle.
In cases of theft not due to the customer’s negligence, the customer liability would vary based on the vehicle group rented, ranging from $5,000 to $40,000. 
If the theft occurs due to the customer’s negligence or complicity, the customer is financially responsible for up to the full value of the vehicle.

Canceling LDW
Once LDW has been purchased, it must remain on the contract. The customer has the option to return the car & close the rental agreement; however, this could change the rate for the rental agreement and a different, possibly higher, rate could apply for a new rental.

Exceptions:
Customers who rent in New York and purchase LDW in New York can decide to cancel this service at no charge, within specific guidelines:

  • Rental must be 2 days or more.
  • The cancellation must be within the first 24 hours of the rental.
  • The actual renter must take the car to an Avis location for inspection & must sign a cancellation notice.

Loss of Use
The customer may also be responsible for reimbursing Avis for the revenue lost by not being able to use the car while it is being repaired or not recovered due to theft (referred to as Loss of Use).

Global insurance coverages are always subject to change. Please verify at time of rental.


Credit Card Policies

Avis accepts most major credit cards as credit identification at the time of rental.  The renter's name must be on the credit card.

Accepted credit card list:  Avis Charge Card, American Express, AT&T Capital, Diner's Club Int'l, Discover, China UnionPay, JCB, MasterCard, and Visa.  Some locations may not accept each of the referenced cards.

 

You may be subject to a credit check or present additional identification.  Acceptable forms of additional identification are:  Valid passport or travel visa, military identification, birth certificate, marriage license, ATM card with customer name printed on face of card, health care identification card with customer’s name printed on face of card or company/college/university identification with a photograph.  In some cases, you may be required to present an alternate credit card.

 

Avis may request an authorization hold against your account for the estimated rental charges of the rental, but reserves the right in its sole discretion to request an extra value to be based on certain factors as we deem appropriate:

  • Most rentals may require an authorization hold of the estimated rental charges plus $200.00 USD.
  • If you have prepaid the rental, the hold amount will be $250.00 USD.

While this hold is in place, the funds will not be available for your use.  When the rental is over, we will process the reversal, but the bank may take time to post it back to the account.

 

Note: Prepaid credit 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 credit cards are accepted at time of return only, if we can obtain full authorization from the card bank for the total charges due.

 


Debit Card Policies

Participating locations will accept a Debit card, however, it must have an accepted bank processing logo (Visa, MasterCard, AMEX, Discover, etc) at the time of rental if you are at least 18 years of age, in the state of New York, and the following requirements:

  • The name of the renter must be on the debit card.
  • A debit card is accepted as credit identification for Economy cars, Compact cars, Intermediate cars, Standard cars, Full-size cars, or Standard SUV's.  The rental of any other vehicle category will require a major credit card.    
  • At airport locations, you will be required to show proof of a return airline flight that corresponds with your rental.
  • You will be subject to a credit check to determine and ensure credit worthiness before releasing the car to you.  If your credit file is frozen with Equifax, you will be required to lift the restriction prior to your rental.  Lifting the restriction does not guarantee that you will be able to rent a vehicle as you will still be subject to a credit check.

Avis will generally request an authorization hold against your account for the estimated rental charges of the rental, but reserves the right in its sole discretion to request an extra value to be based on certain factors as we deem appropriate:

  • Most rentals may require an authorization hold of the estimated rental charges plus $200 USD.
  • Rentals of 4 days or more may require an authorization hold of the estimated rental charges plus $300 USD.
  • If you have prepaid the rental with a debit card, the hold is $250.00 USD.

THESE FUNDS WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR YOUR USE.  When the rental is over we will process the reversal, but the bank may take time to post it back to the account.  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 overdraft fees based on this policy.

Positive identification in addition to your driver's license may be required.

 

Note: Prepaid Debit/Gift cards are not acceptable methods of credit identification to pick up a car at any location.  Prepaid Debit/Gift cards are accepted at time of return only.


Drivers License

At time of pick-up, driver must present a valid, U.S.-issued driver's license and credit card (or debit card at participating locations) in the driver's name.  If the driver's license is not issued in the U.S., you must present your drivers license and either a passport or a Canadian enhanced license in the driver's name.

Additional Driver Policy

All additional drivers must be at least 25 years of age. The following are exempt from the additional driver fee but must meet all other driver requirements: the renter's employer or fellow employee when on company business and renting under a corporate account; the renter's spouse or domestic partner; the companion driver of a renter with a disability who has completed the non-licensed renter form; for insurance replacement rentals, company employees or family members who are designated on the insurance policy.

The following are exempt from the underage fee:

  • A customer with an acceptable corporate discount number presenting an acceptable major credit or bank debit card.
  • A customer presenting an Avis charge card, government-issued Visa/MasterCard credit card or government travel/purchase orders.

Fuel Policy

Fuel Service Charge. Most rentals come with a full tank of fuel, but that is not always the case.

Where available, if permitted by law, if you drive less than 75 miles, you acknowledge that we will add a flat fee to the rental, the amount of which will be disclosed on the Rental Contract and at the counter prior to rental. You may avoid this charge at time of return by providing a receipt for fuel purchased at which time the flat fee will be reversed from your total rental charges. If this subparagraph (a) does not apply, there are three refueling options:

1) If you do not accept the fuel service option, where available, at the beginning of your rental, and you return the car with less fuel than was in it when you received it, as we determine in our sole discretion, we will charge you a fuel service charge at the applicable rate per-mile or rate per-gallon specified on the Rental Contract or disclosed at the location. The per-mile rate is used if you do not buy fuel during the rental. To calculate this amount, we multiply the number of miles driven, as shown on the car’s odometer (or provided by the vehicle's telematics device), times the per-mile rate shown on the Rental Contract. The per gallon rate is used if you buy fuel during the rental and provide us with a receipt on our request, but the tank is not as full when you return the car as when you received the car (by using the factory installed gauge, rounded down to the nearest 1/8 tank), times the per-gallon rate shown on the Rental Contract.

Although two methods are used for ease of calculation, the per mile and per-gallon rates produce approximately the same result. Some of our cars are equipped with onboard telematics which record the actual amounts of fuel in the gas tank. In the event your car has such a device, you will be charged for the actual amount of gasoline needed to fill the tank based on the reading of this device.

2) If you accept the fuel service option at the beginning of your rental, you will be charged as shown on the Rental Contract for that purchase and you will not pay us a fuel service charge. If you choose this option, you will not incur an additional fuel service charge, but you will not receive any credit for fuel left in the tank at the time of return.  If you accept the partial fuel service option at the beginning of your rental, you will be charged as shown on the Rental Contract for that purchase and you will pay a fuel service charge for any fuel not covered by the partial fuel service option. The per-gallon cost of the fuel service option will always be lower than the fuel service charge. The cost of refueling the car yourself at a local service station may be lower than the fuel service charge or the fuel service option. You acknowledge that the fuel service charge is not a retail sale of fuel.

3) You may avoid a fuel service charge if you return the car with the fuel tank as full as when you received it and, if requested by us, present a receipt for your fuel purchase. If you put fuel into the car, you must use the correct fuel (having the grade of gasoline stated on the car fuel information decal, or on-road diesel). Do not use ethanol fuel even if the car states that it is a flex-fuel vehicle.
