Get the most out of your holiday and book a fly-drive holiday with British Airways. Our flight + car hire packages, in partnership with Avis, include all of the mandatory charges that you'll need to drive away and explore at your leisure. With Avis you also have the added reassurance of 24-hour customer support and roadside assistance should you need it.

Go further with our fantastic car hire offers and enjoy additional savings when you book your flights + car together. You'll also earn a minimum of 500 Avios on every rental.

Or enjoy the convenience of car hire when you’re away on your family holiday – we won’t charge you for taking your child’s car seat with you or if you’d prefer to rent them at the depot you can. The possibilities are endless when you take a fly-drive holiday.
