When you arrive at the rental location you will need:
*Insurance excess may apply. Please ask for details at time of booking. THEFT PROTECTION (TP)*
This covers the cost of replacing the rental car (or parts of it) if it gets stolen. You may have to pay an excess, which will vary by country, so please check at time of reservation.
The tax on the rate is included.
This applies for rentals taking place from an airport. The airport surcharge amount is only included in your quote based on the elements incorporated in the rate. N.B. The Airport Surcharge will also be applied to any optional additional charges. The Airport Surcharge is not levied on fuel, vehicle registration fee & tax.
A compulsory insurance in case you damage someone or something else.
International rates generally always include unlimited mileage. Please note, however, that mileage charges can apply in some instances such as domestic rentals. Please refer to your booking confirmation or travel agent if in doubt.
If the rental car is damaged, this will cover the cost of repairs. You will have to pay a fixed amount towards these repairs called an excess. This excess will vary by country so please check with Avis at the time of reservation. (This coverage is known as LDW in Australia, USA and New Zealand).
These are not included** in your Avis car hire and are payable locally at the end of your rental. Local taxes also apply. The amount of tax varies by country.
Where available, will reduce or eliminate the excess that you have to pay in the event of damage to the rental car. Purchased when you pick up the car.
Where available, will reduce or waive the excess that you have to pay in the event of the car (or parts of it) being stolen. Purchased when you pick up the car.
Should you have an accident during the rental, as a driver or passenger, this will cover some medical expenses, accidental death payment and assistance/ rescue. If you have holiday insurance, you may not need this. Please check your own holiday insurance.
Simply covers more than the PAI plus personal effects/baggage and contingency expenses.
In the event of there being damage to or theft of the vehicle, a sum of money (an excess) will be paid by the renter along with a damage processing fee. The maximum charge a customer will pay for any damage is the lesser of either the total repair costs plus the Damage Processing Fee or the customer’s Non Waivable Excess. The Damage Processing Fee is eliminated for all customers with a zero Non Waivable Excess. Optional insurances, that reduce or waiver the excess, can be purchased locally at the rental station when you collect your car (see optional insurances).
These are not included in your Avis car hire and are payable locally at the end of your rental. Local tax also applies. The amount of tax varies by country.
The rental car is insured for one person only. Should you wish to add additional drivers, then please do so when you pick up your car. There will be an additional charge for each driver which is payable at the Avis Rental Location. A full driving licence for each additional driver (held for at least one year – three years in Cyprus) will also need to be provided at the time of rental.
e.g. child seats, ski racks, snow chains etc are available at extra cost. You can pre-book these before you travel but you will pay for them at the end of your rental. Pre-booking is subject to availability.
In Cyprus, you have two options;
All Vehicles are supplied with a full tank of fuel for which a deposit including 17€ plus V.A.T service charge is required. On your return with a full tank of fuel a receipt must be provided from a petrol station within a 10KM radius and a refund will be made.
No partial refunds are made for unused fuel. Refunds will be made only on Credit Cards. No cash refunds.
If you plan to return the car to a different rental location, you must let us know in advance as a ‘drop off’ charge may apply which will be charged at the end of your rental. Please check at time of booking.
If you have asked for your Avis car either to be delivered to you or collected from you, a charge may apply. This will be charged for at the end of your rental. Please ask when you make your reservation.
Some countries charge an additional tax – e.g. to pay for the road network etc. This is not included and will be payable at the end of your rental.
