spiritual heart of Britain? The town is shrouded in myth and legend and is well
located on the edge of Somerset, which means visitors can combine a beach
break with countryside activities, all while enjoying the historic culture of this
Glastonbury Abbey is one of Britain’s most prestigious monuments and the burial place of King Arthur, making it the perfect destination for anyone looking to learn more about culture and British history.
The Gower Peninsula is a beautiful and unspoilt area of Wales that is perfect for those looking for a bit of adventure. From hiking to horse-riding, surfing and coasteering, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the great outdoors. To make the most of being in this truly stunning country, why not drive from coast to coast, starting in the Gower and driving across to Snowdonia National Park. Consider hiring a 4x4 to give you enough room to pack any outdoor pursuits equipment.
The breath-taking scenery around Scotland’s famous lochs is known to have inspired great heroes and artists and is a world away from the city buzz of nearby Glasgow. Featuring winding drives across the mountains and glens, take in the unspoilt landscapes by car and stop off at the many nature reserves and historic castles en-route. Don’t forget to pick up a map or GPS at the rental station.
As well as being a great destination for adventurous hikers and climbers, the Lake District is also a perfect place for family breaks with multiple places and activities to keep children entertained. Kids will love the white-knuckle mountain bike trails in the Whinlatter Forest Park, while no family trip to the Lake District is complete without a visit to Hilltop, former home of children’s author Beatrix Potter.

To qualify for the standard Avios award (1 Avios per R10 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 do not qualify for standard or bonus Avios. Chauffeur Drive, van rentals, travel industry staff rates including BA and Avis employee programmes, replacement/insurance rates, selected association programmes, net rate programmes and rentals booked through other online travel agents, brokers and price comparison sites do not qualify for Avios. Only UK Prestige rentals qualify for Avios; Avios will not be awarded on any other Prestige rentals worldwide.

Consecutive or conjunctive rentals will not qualify for Avios awards – only the first qualifying rental in such situations will be awarded Avios.
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.
Collect 1 Avios per R10 spent on Avis car rental
Avis will award a standard ‘1 Avios per R10 spent’ on Avis rentals. As awards are applied centrally from the United Kingdom the awards are based on 3 Avios per £1 spent. 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 for 1-2 day rentals and a minimum of 700 Avios for 3+day rentals will be awarded per qualifying rental. 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 (e.g. 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.
2 Avios per £1 spent on Avis corporate rates
Avis will award 2 Avios per £1 spent on certain selected qualifying Avis corporate 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. There is no minimum Avios award for corporate rentals. A maximum 10,000 Avios will be awarded per qualifying rental. Avis corporate rentals do not qualify for any bonus Avios promotions. Post-rental, if any adjustments to the value of that rental are made (e.g. 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. To qualify for the 2 Avios per £1 spent on selected Avis corporate rentals, 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. If you are a corporate customer and have any questions regarding your eligibility for Avios, please contact your Avis Corporate Account Manager.
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 2013 and closes on 4th January 2014 will be counted in the 2013 calendar year.
250 bonus Avios when you pay for your Avis rental using your co-brand British Airways finance card (participating cards only).
Qualifying rentals 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.

Join Avis Preferred through one of our Avis & British Airways partnership enrolment communications or at avisba.com/preferred. This way you will be asked to provide your Executive Club membership tier and your Executive club membership number and this information will be stored in your Preferred membership profile, ensuring you receive Avios on every rental you make. For UK customers only, please always remember to bring BOTH parts of your driver's licence if you have a new style picture one. It's essential that we check both parts for identification and driving endorsements. Sometimes our Avis Preferred members forget as they understandably assume that they don't need ANY paperwork, but we do need to be able to check a valid driving licence at each rental, so please bring it along.
When you receive your Preferred card you will also receive a voucher for 500 bonus Avios on your first Preferred rental. Simply follow the booking instructions on the reverse of the vouchers to qualify. It is now possible to make Avis Preferred bookings on ba.com. Please note that a BA AWD (Avis Worldwide Discount number) will be automatically applied to these bookings. If your Avis Preferred profile includes a corporate AWD this will be over-written with a BA AWD during the booking process so you will not receive a corporate rate. If you are a corporate customer and have any questions regarding this process, please contact your Avis Corporate Account Manager.
Executive Club members are eligible for one free additional driver on every qualifying rental, worldwide.
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. The additional driver must meet standard Avis age and driver requirements for that rental location. The additional driver must present a full valid driving licence (both parts if new style UK paper/picture card version; International Driving Permit if the driver’s licence is written in non-Roman alphabet e.g. Greek / Arabic etc.). Only one additional driver may be claimed free of charge per rental. Further additional drivers will be charged at time of rental at the appropriate rate published for that location.
This benefit is available for British Airways Executive Club Members only, all membership tiers, booking on ba.com; avisba.com; BA Call Centres or Avis Call Centres using a BA Executive Club AWD: Gold N744400; Silver N744300; Blue N744100; Bronze N284300.
