Terms & Conditions
Avis & British Airways Partnership – Terms & Conditions
Commencing 1st April 2009
To qualify for the standard Avios award (3 Avios per £1 spent) and all bonus Avios awards, rentals must include the British Airways Executive Club membership number of the first named driver (the “renter”). This Executive Club card number must be given at time of reservation and the card shown at time of rental.
Rentals made using Avis contracted (corporate/government) rates/AWDs, chauffeur drive, or van rentals do not qualify for Avios. Travel industry staff rates including BA and Avis employee programmes, replacement/insurance rates, selected association programmes, and net rate programmes do not qualify for Avios.
Only UK Prestige rentals qualify for Avios; Avios will not be awarded on any other Prestige rentals worldwide.
Avios can be earned on Avis car rental without taking a flight.
The awarding of Avios may take up to 8 weeks from date of rental.
All Avios issued are subject to Executive Club terms and conditions.
Renter must meet Avis age, driver and credit requirements.
Earn 3 Avios per £1 spent on Avis car rental
Avis will award 3 Avios per £1 spent on Avis rentals. If the rental is not paid in £ sterling, then the currency will be changed to £ sterling at the Avis Exchange rate applicable on date of rental commencement (the date the car is collected). The final rental value used to calculate the Avios award will exclude any charges for damage (actual damage charges or insurance excesses charged due to damage) and will exclude all taxes.
A minimum of 500 Avios and a maximum of 10,000 Avios will be awarded per qualifying rental.
Post-rental, if any adjustments to the value of that rental are made (eg a refund is made by Avis Customer Services) then the appropriate Avios award adjustment will be credited or debited from the Executive Club member’s account as necessary.
Loyalty Bonus – receive 750 bonus Avios when you have made 4 qualifying rentals with Avis in a 12-month calendar year.
Make four qualifying rentals with Avis during a 12 month calendar year (1st January – 31st December) and receive a once-only loyalty bonus award of 750 Avios.
The rental start date (ie the date the car is picked up) will determine what calendar year that rental has been accrued in, to count towards the four rentals required. For example, a rental that commences on 20th December 2009 and closes on 4th January 2010 will be counted in the 2009 calendar year.
250 bonus Avios when you pay for your Avis rental using your co-brand British Airways finance card (participating cards only).
To qualify, the rental must either be pre-paid using a participating British Airways co-brand finance card (via ba.com, avisba.com, BA Call Centres or Avis Call Centres) or if a pay-later reservation has been made, the rental must be paid for at the rental location when the car is returned using a participating British Airways co-brand finance card.
Participating cards (list correct at 12 February 2010):
Only payment for rentals will qualify for the bonus. Separate payment for non-rental items such as ancillaries, damages, fines will not qualify for the Avios bonus.
If the rental value is subsequently refunded by the British Airways co-brand finance card, the 250 bonus Avios will be debited from the Executive Club member’s account.
Only qualifying rentals will earn the 250 Avios bonus i.e. rentals made using Avis contracted (corporate/government) rates/AWDs, chauffeur drive, or van rentals do not qualify. Travel industry staff rates including BA and Avis employee programmes, replacement/insurance rates, selected association programmes, and net rate programmes do not qualify.
Simply make your reservation as normal. If you know you require an additional driver this can be requested at time of booking. Alternatively you can request an additional driver to be added when you collect your car.
