The freedom of the open road is full of rewards – no route limitations, strict schedules, or fellow travellers to endure. But each self-driven adventure is even more rewarding as an Avis Preferred member.

The loyalty programme for the leading business car hire company is free to join and has been designed to provide maximum benefits from minimal effort. 

After a simple online enrolment process, which includes inputting your driving license and payment details, you can start earning fantastic rewards and benefits across the network. Not only can all future bookings be made with your customer number either online, via the phone or on the Avis Preferred app, but you can also jump the queue at our rental centres and benefit from priority service by our dedicated customer service team. 

And that’s just the start. As an Avis Preferred member, the more rentals you hire, the more rewards you’ll receive. For example, all new members will receive a money-off voucher and an upgrade voucher after completion of their second rental, while after your third rental you will receive a weekend voucher to enjoy a free weekend getaway.


Long-term loyalty is also rewarded. The membership programme has three tiers, with members who spend €1,000 on five or more rentals in a year automatically upgraded to Avis Preferred Plus status, and true road warriors who spend €2,000 on 10 or more rentals qualifying for the premium Avis President’s Club.

Exclusive perks for more premium tier membership includes things like a free additional driver, guaranteed upgrade on your chosen vehicle – and even double upgrades at the weekend.

With so many great benefits on offer, you might be kicking yourself for not signing up as an Avis Preferred member earlier. But there’s no need. Sign up today and you can retroactively add rentals to your account from the last six months.

What’s more, even if you’re a member of another car hire programme, all those miles you’ve clocked up still count. Avis Preferred Status Match will match whatever status you’ve achieved with another car rental loyalty scheme so you don’t have to leave any benefits behind.

This can be done in three simple steps: simply state the car rental loyalty programme you have the highest tier status with, upload proof of membership, and add your details.

Once a fully fledged Avis Preferred Member, get ready to start enjoying the rewards at more than 3,000 Avis car hire locations worldwide.

An international hub connecting the world to the UK’s northwest, Manchester Airport is one of the busiest airports in the UK. As an Avis Preferred member, you’ll be able to skip the queues and smoothly transition from air to road with our fantastic range of onsite rental options.

The Avis car rental centre in Manchester is conveniently located in the airport’s rental village, making it fast and easy to collect your ride.

You’ll also benefit from having the choice of a huge range of safe, modern vehicles to suit your specific needs; fast efficient check-in; and a 24-hour drop-off service. As an Avis Preferred member, check-in is quicker than fast: your keys will be waiting in the ignition as soon as you arrive. Need to cancel last-minute? No problem. Our flexible booking means you can enjoy full fee-free cancellations, so you’re covered if your plans change. And if your adventures take you beyond the city limits, you can simply book a one-way rental and drop your car off at a location that suits you.
