Avis Rent a Car, more commonly known as just Avis, is a well-respected car rental company that has built its reputation over decades. The company was established in Michigan in 1946, and has since gone on to set up branches in locations in almost every corner of the planet.

Find your Avis rental car online using Orbitz, and you can reserve in advance so that all you have to do when you reach your destination is pick up your keys and go. Booking through Orbitz can also mean you get a better deal on your rental car, and have a wider range of vehicles to choose from.
There are some basics it’s good to know about before you rent a car from Avis. We’ve covered them below.
Each country or state has its own rules, but you can expect to be unable to rent a car unless you’re 21. If you’re under 25, you will normally pay a surcharge.
In most locations, those aged under 25 probably won’t be allowed to rent certain vehicles, such as vans or luxury sports cars.
In some countries (but not the US) you might be unable to rent or be asked to pay a surcharge if you are over a certain age.
For many decades, Avis’ range of rental vehicles had a focus on General Motors cars, including Cadillac and Chevrolet, but the company has now branched out into other brands as well.
Choose an economy car such as a Ford Fiesta, or go off road with a Jeep. Upscale options like the Ford Mustang and the Jaguar F-Type are also available.
The exact selection of cars available will depend on location.
When you’re renting any car, bring your valid driver’s license and your credit card. Debit cards will sometimes be accepted, but you may be asked to show proof of address or an airline ticket, so check ahead.
When you rent an Avis car outside the US, you will always need your passport, and may in some cases need an international driving permit.
