Fly-drive vacations

Get the most out of your vacation and book a fly-drive vacation with British Airways. Our flight + car rental 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 rental offers and enjoy additional savings when you book your flights + car together. You'll also earn a minimum of 500 Avios on every rental. Set the scene for the ultimate road trip and step among the bright lights on a city break, exploring as far as time allows, then unwind after all the excitement with a relaxing beach vacation on the nearest coast. Or enjoy the convenience of car rental when you’re away on your family vacation – 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 vacation.
