Payment Options

If you have prepaid for your voucher directly with Avis, it's not a problem. You can still collect your hire car. Just be sure to bring all of the other required identification and documentation, including the credit card used to make your booking.

If it is a voucher from a travel agent or third party agency however, we need to see the voucher before you can drive your hire car away.

 

Don't forget to review the terms and conditions when you book, which include everything you need to know ahead of your journey.

Unfortunately we no longer accept cash on collection.

Remember to bring your credit card when you pick up your hire vehicle. This must be in the same name as the main driver, and the same card used to create your booking.

In Denmark, by Danish law it is possible to pay cash at the end of the rental in Danish kroner.

We offer you a couple of ways to pay to make it easy. You can pay online now or pay on collection and we'll charge you at the end of the hire. The choice is yours.

We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Diners/Discover debit, credit or charge cards. There are a few exceptions: One credit card and one debit card may be required at the counter for higher-value vehicles. You can't use a debit card in Iceland and Canada. We don't accept cards with Solo, JCB or Cirrus logos – even if they carry the Visa or MasterCard logo. Germany issued Maestro cards are only accepted in Germany. If you booked online using a PREPAID card, it must be shown at the counter along with another payment card. Two payment cards may be required at the counter for higher-value vehicles; if you've booked online, or over the phone, this will be highlighted on your booking confirmation.

Remember, the name on the card must match the driving licence of the main driver and must contain both the first and last names to complete the check-out process. When you signed up for Avis Preferred you provided your preferred payment method. We use this each time you book. You can update your profile and change the payment card at any time.


An ACTO (Avis Company Travel Order) is a special voucher businesses give to staff so they can hire a vehicle with us. Simply show your ACTO, driving licence and company ID when you collect your hire vehicle and we’ll invoice your company directly. These vouchers can’t be used for online bookings.

If you would like to use these vouchers at work, simply set up an Avis corporate account.

You can either pay for your vehicle when you book online, or when you collect your hire vehicle. If you choose to pay when you book online, we’ll dip/swipe your card to gain authorisation. If you choose to pay at the station, we’ll dip/swipe your card to gain authorisation for the estimated full hire cost (including extras) but won’t take payment until you return your vehicle. There are some useful extras such as Fuel Up Front that you can't pay for until you collect your vehicle. These will of course still be reserved for you.

We offer you a couple of ways to pay to make it easy. You can pay online now or later when you collect your vehicle. The choice is yours. If you choose to pay online now, you’ll pay the cost of your booking up front with a discounted price. Some extras can only be paid for at the counter. We’ll let you know which ones when you book; they will still be reserved for you. When you collect your vehicle, you’ll need to present the card used for your online payment, we’ll dip/swipe your card to gain authorisation but won’t take any payment until you return your vehicle. If you’d rather not pay online now, you can pay at the hire station. When you collect your vehicle, we’ll dip/swipe your card to gain authorisation for the full hire cost (including extras) but won’t take payment until you return your vehicle. Paying now will cost you less than paying later.

A fixed value voucher only covers hire fees up to a certain amount so you’ll need to provide a payment card in the name of the driver and pay for any extra costs not covered by the voucher. A full credit voucher covers the entire hire, however much it costs. You can pick up a fixed value voucher from a travel agent. Please note that full credit vouchers are only available for business rentals through a corporate travel agent.
