Frequently Asked Questions About Avis

What cars does Avis have?

Avis offers compact cars, economy cars, intermediate cars, SUVs, wagons, and passenger vans. The available range of vehicles varies per location.

How can I pay for my car hire with Avis?

AMEX, Mastercard, Visa, and Diners Club credit cards are accepted for vehicle payments with Avis. You can also pay with a Visa or Mastercard debit card.

How much does Avis require for security bond and how long will it take to refund?

Both credit and debit card payments require a $200 security hold​ ($400 for commercial vehicles) in addition to the estimated total cost of the vehicle. You won’t have access to these funds until the rental period is completed.​ The refund usually takes 2 to 10 days, but the amount of time depends on your bank.

What is the minimum age to hire a car from Avis in Australia?

Avis’s minimum age requirement for drivers is 21; however, drivers aged between 21 and 24 will need to pay a young driver surcharge​.

What type of driving licence does Avis accept?

Any valid driver’s licence printed in English meets Avis’s driving licence requirements. If your licence isn’t in English, you’ll need an International Driving Permit (IDP).

Does an Avis hire car include insurance?

Yes. Basic cover is included in the rental quote, but if the vehicle is stolen, damaged, or a third-party loss occurs, you’ll have to pay up to the Rental Vehicle Excess amount listed in your Avis rental agreement.

How much does roadside assistance cost for an Avis vehicle?

You won’t be charged for mechanical breakdowns, however if you require roadside assistance for a non-mechanical issue, like flat tyres, running out of petrol, or locking your keys in the car, a $198 call-out fee will apply.

How do I pay for road tolls with Avis?

All Avis vehicles are fitted with e-Tags, meaning your toll road usage will be recorded and your nominated credit card will be charged by RMS for any amounts accumulated.

Do I have to wash the vehicle before returning it to Avis?

No. Avis doesn’t require you to wash the hire car prior to drop-off, but it’s advised you return the vehicle in fair condition to avoid cleaning fees.

Do I need to refuel before returning the vehicle to Avis?

Yes. Return the hire car to Avis with a full tank of petrol to avoid extra charges.

How do I extend the booking period of my Avis hire car?

If your rental period is yet to commence, you can modify your booking with the VroomVroomVroom app or contact our customer care team​ to make the required changes. Otherwise, if the rental period has commenced, you’ll need to contact the Avis depot you collected from, bearing in mind that any changes may alter the total cost of your rental.

Can I get discounts on Avis vehicles with VroomVroomVroom?

Unlike other comparison sites where you’re required to input discount codes upon booking, our rates on Avis vehicles already have applicable discounts applied, resulting in the sharpest available rates on every search.
