Up to 5,800 Bonus Avios for Car Hire with Avis

Car rental company Avis is currently offering up to 5,800 bonus Avios for car hire – if you book quickly!

There are actually two separate offers but both require a rental minimum of 3 days and the rental car group must be Group C or higher:

  1. 5000 bonus Avioslimited to the first 100 people to book!
  2. 800 bonus Avios for rentals before 7th April 2017.

The standard minimum earning for a 3 day Class C rental is 700 Avios, so with the 800 Bonus that works at 1,500 – or 500 Avios per day. That’s OK, but certainly not great.

If you can book tonight though, you should be in with a decent chance of being one of the first 100 and could collect a hefty 6,500 Avios in total – 2,166 Avios per day!

As ever with these deals, make sure you read the terms carefully (included at the bottom of this post) and shop around to make sure you aren’t paying more by booking through BA than the bonus Avios are worth.

Anything else?

Yep – it seems that if you book your car using a British Airways American Express Card, you should get a further bonus of 750 Avios minimum.

Bottom line

If you are one of the first 100 people to book, 6,500 Avios for a 3 day rental is a pretty solid return. I received the promo email this evening and although all global bookings are eligible, the offer is only available to people in the UK, so as long as you are quick to book you should have a good chance of getting the 5,000 bonus Avios.

Prices for car rental vary hugely and you can sometimes find amazing deals by shopping around, so don’t be blinded by the bonus Avios!

    Weird. I ran the Iberia Plus version of this on my blog a few days ago. Obviously Avis got crushed by last year’s 18,000 Avios promo, but I wonder whether the first 100 customers applies to each programme separately, or overall. And surely Avis gets 100 car rental bookings in a matter of minutes or hours so this smells like bait-and-switch to me…

      Got to be booked through the BA Avis page though and UK only so I think it should have been ok for a day or so.
