Budget is owned by Avis and it's a relatively new name in European car rentals. Currently, they are using THE SAME FLEET AS AVIS in most European countries! Same cars at lower prices. So if you see a lower price on Budget - grab it.

2. Price Comparison Links. To compare the prices offered from several car rental companies in one search, usually including Budget, Avis, Europcar, Hertz and others - visit the consolidators AutoEurope or Kemwel. The reputable broker AutoEurope has a low price guarantee, easy cancellation up to 48 hours before the rental, and a 24/7 English help line before, during, and after the sale. They are a Maine, USA company with an excellent reputation, and they optionally offer rentals with zero excess insurance (no deductible) if needed*.  The consolidator Kemwel is the lower cost subsidiary of AutoEurope. We advise dealing only with well-known car rental companies and never commit to an un-named one.

* The excess/deductible may already be covered as a benefit offered by your credit card or by your home auto insurance. You can also buy a special traveler's insurance policy ahead of time, or a policy purchased from a car rental broker or by paying more to the car rental company. Read the terms offered, as all of them have significant exclusions. You can also self-insure, since the odds are in favor of good experienced drivers who can afford the risk.

3. Avis Specials & Discounts. 
Link:  AVIS WEBSITE (English)        
Look below for one of the many discounts and special promotions offered by Avis Europe in the various European countries including France, Spain, Germany, and Italy. You won't see these offers on Avis.Com and you won't see some of them on the English version of some of the multi-lingual Avis sites! There are offers such as discount coupon codes, a free additional driver, monthly and weekend rates, or upgrade specials available on the local sites, so why not get the best deal? We make any language translation really easy.

First click on the country name you'll be visiting to jump down to that country's listing. There you'll find the most popular current Avis Promotions and Special Offers and you'll see more offers by clicking on that country's Avis website link - perhaps a free TomTom GPS, an over-55 discount, or a monthly rate. Second scan all the promos, since there might be, say, a discount on the French site for an Italian rental.

Click for your Country's Section:


AUSTRIA        BELGIUM        ENGLAND        FRANCE        GERMANY
ITALY        NETHERLANDS        PORTUGAL        SPAIN
SCOTLAND        SWITZERLAND        UNITED KINGDOM

Some specials can be reserved for particular groups, such as returning expats, but for the great majority, you do not need to be a local to get the special savings, just in gamba (that's from our expensive Italian lessons).

Translation Info. If needed, use this Google Translate Link. To translate a whole webpage, copy the url and paste it in the left hand box and select 'Detect Language', then select the target language, and click on the url that appears in the right-hand box.

About Us & Disclosure. We are recently retired photo editors who enjoy travel, food, and helping people. We have visited Europe for three decades, and we live in Italy part-time. We have no connection to the car rental or hotel industries, and we receive no payments for our writing or opinions. As is internet convention, we receive the standard commission for clicks on some commercial links that result in a purchase. If we've helped you, please thank us by using our links. For hotel reservations, use the very helpful: Booking.Com.

Read The Terms. Modern life demands you read the Terms and Conditions for any car rental. Promotions have conditions that may affect your particular use. Companies may have policies that affect you. Some examples: Avis Italy requires two different credit cards in your name; AutoEurope's no excess insurance excludes accidents in 'parking facilities'; most rental companies place a substantial hold on your credit card, lowering your available credit; an administrative fee will probably be charged for an accident even with zero excess (deductible) coverage.

Avis Links, Promotions and Special Offers by Country
These are the current promotional offerings by Avis. Some will pop right up or be in a box on the front page. Some will be listed in 'Offers' under the header. Others will just plain fail. Some country sites are much better than others.
