How to Skip the Car Rental Queues

Get going quicker with Avis QuickPass

We recently caught up with our friends at Avis to learn all about QuickPass, their new completely contactless car rental experience.

Born from a mission to provide a fast, safe and service-driven rental car experience to the business travel market,  QuickPass is a seamless digital check-in service, which speeds up vehicle collection and return – all while bypassing lengthy counter queues. It makes perfect sense. The last thing anyone wants after a long flight is an extended wait in line. Avis QuickPass promises its users that it will get them out on the road faster than ever before. We wanted to find out more.

How Does it Work?

  • Customers simply complete all the paperwork and submit customised requests in advance, enabling them to start their journey as quickly as possible.
  • Customers can register for QuickPass the moment the car is booked by providing driving licence and payment card details.  Whilst registering customers can also tailor the rental with any extras required, such as additional driver.
  • At the vehicle collection location customers follow the dedicated QuickPass signs and after just a licence and ID check they’re ready to go.
  • To avoid delay, UK driving licence holders should always remember to obtain a DVLA licence code, which they’ll need to enable car collection.

Seamless Integration with the Avis App 

Avis QuickPass is seamlessly integrated with the Avis App, offering you full access to everything you need to know about your car rental booking before, during, and after your trip. Regardless of how your booking was made, the Avis App allows you to manage the booking in a variety of ways:

  • Changes or upgrades can be made at the very last minute, even on the approach to the hire location! Extras can be added – perhaps add a second driver, or secure extra equipment.
  • The exact make and model of car can be chosen (subject to availability) And if plans are altered, the rental can be extended at the press of a button.
  • Avis Preferred members with the Avis App can bypass the queue and be on their way faster with Avis QuickPass!
