Renting a car in a foreign country can be a daunting experience and it is vital that you book with a reputable company. With additional driver and mileage costs, insurance and excess fees, not to mention extras like car seats or sat-navs, you really need to be on your toes when renting a car. Booking through Avis gives you peace of mind that you are dealing with a trusted car rental company. You can book directly through or use their dedicated reservation line. They also offer flexibility on payment, you can pay when you make the reservation, or when you collect your car.

Avis operate in over 5,000 locations in 165 countries across the globe. Budget car rental is also bookable directly with so between both brands you will find a wide variety of cars available for business or leisure purposes.
