Avis and British Airways have come together to launch a very generous Black Friday deal which actually runs until next Tuesday evening.

If you book an Avis car at a participating location for three days or more, you will receive 5,000 bonus Avios.  This is on top of the base Avios you will earn.

Here is a summary of the terms and conditions:

You must book before midnight on Tuesday 27th November

You must collect your car before 31st January 2019

You must book a Group C car or above

You must rent for a minimum of 3 days

You must rent from a participating Avis office in Europe, Africa, the Middle East or Asia (North America is excluded)

You must use the British Airways discount code (AWD), which we list below, when booking

The offer is not valid on Prestige, Van or Chauffeur Drive rentals worldwide

Check the full terms and conditions on the Avis / BA website here before you book.

How many Avios will I earn?

You will earn 5,000 bonus Avios under this promotion, on top of your base Avios.

For a 3+ day rental, which is what is required here, your base earnings will be 3 Avios per £1 with a minimum of 700 Avios.

You will also earn an additional 250 Avios if you pay for your rental with a British Airways Premium Plus American Express card.

Assuming you do pay with a BAPP Amex, you will earn a minimum of 5,950 Avios and potentially more depending on how much you spend.  If you pay with a different credit card you will earn at least 5,700 Avios.

There is cap of 10,000 Avios per rental.

How do I book?

Avis and BA have a dedicated booking site which you can find here.

You can also book via ba.com or directly at avis.co.uk.

If you use avis.co.uk, you will need to manually add the British Airways discount codes (AWD) which are, based on your British Airways Executive Club status:

Gold members – N744400

Silver members – N744300

Bronze members – N284300

Blue members – N744100

Are there any other benefits from booking with Avis?

Yes.  Book via the British Airways discount codes above and you will receive a free additional driver.

There is also a free ‘meet and greet’ service at London Heathrow for anyone booking a Prestige vehicle, although Prestige rentals are excluded from the 5,000 bonus Avios offer.

Avis also has two other Avios bonuses you can collect on top of this offer:

If you join Avis Preferred for free you will collect an additional 500 bonus Avios on your first Preferred rental

If you rent with Avis four times in a calendar year, you will earn 1,000 bonus Avios


Black Friday car hire deals have been thin on the ground, so it is good to see Avis coming out with something so generous.  If you value an Avios at 1p, which is our usual minimum valuation on the site, you will receive £57-worth of points for your 3+ day rental.  This is likely to be an excellent return on the money you spend.

Full details of this deal can be found on the Avis / BA booking page at carhire-ba.com here.

  1. Chechire Pete says:

    Anyone know for certain if my pick up times are at 11:00 on a Monday and drop off 1800 Wednesday this counts as a 3 day rental in the system to trigger the offer?

    • In my experience, yes, anything between 48-72 hours is billed as 3 days. Only exception is if you are booked on the Amex Plat Hertz rate where you get 4 bonus hours, which means it has to be between 52-76 hours to count as 3 days.

  2. Donna Williams says:

    Hi, how can I tell if I will get the 5000 points as on the booking it just says it earns 700? Will these be added separately? Thanks

  3. Is this deal still running? Can’t see any mention of it on the webpage tonight
