Choosing your hire vehicle

Usually you choose a car group, not a specific make or model. We’ll show you an example from that group to give you a clear idea of the type of vehicle you will get.

But hire in the UK, Germany or Italy from our Avis Select Series and you get to pick the exact car you want. You can’t choose the colour, but that really won’t matter once you’re behind the wheel.

You could soon be driving the open road in a premium Mercedes A-Class or a sporty Audi A5. We only offer quality models.

The choice is yours. Simply pick your perfect hire car

Remember to book at least 72 hours before your journey so we can prepare your car.

Want to drive the open road in premium style? Hire from our Avis Prestige range and make your UK or European journey memorable. Choose from a selection of our most premium hire cars, ranging from the latest sporty Porsche to an executive Jaguar.

We offer many cars in different styles and sizes, so you can hire the perfect model for your journey. These cars belong to various groups, such as Group A or Group J.

Ordering cars into groups helps us provide a premium service, because there is never any confusion over the car you are hiring and whether you’re eligible to drive it.

Sometimes you’re only eligible to hire cars from certain groups. For example, in the UK if you hire a car under the age of 25 you can choose from Group A (such as a Citroen C1), Group B (such as a Ford Fiesta), Group C (such as a Hyundai i30), Group E (such as Vauxhall Astra) or Group I (such as VW Golf).
 
The car groups also help you understand useful information, such as the amount you pay (the excess) if you’re involved in an accident, which can vary from group to group.

We offer a range of cars across each car group, so can’t guarantee the make, model or colour. ‘Or similar’ simply provides a clearan idea of the type of vehicle you will hire.

With Avis you can be sure we only work with the best car manufacturers and ensure our vehicles are in great condition, so you will always have the best ride whether you’re driving a Mercedes, a Volkswagen or another car brand.

If you’re hiring in the UK and would rather choose the exact make and model of your car, try our Select Series.
