AVIS Car Rental Services at Sydney Airport

Sydney Airport is the main air gateway to Australia’s largest city, and is located in the suburb of Mascot, New South Wales. The airport is only 8 km from the central business district of Sydney, and found next to Botany Bay. It is also known as Kingsford Smith Airport, or the Mascot Airport, due to its location. Sydney Airport is a large establishment, handling well over 44 million passengers per year, and is also a hub for a number of airline companies, such as Qantas and Virgin Australia. Passengers arriving at the airport can rent a car from Avis, or one of the other car hire companies, located in the arrival areas of the terminals. Avis is a very popular choice for their low rental prices and quality vehicles.

There are three passenger terminals at Sydney Airport, and an Avis car rental counter can be found in each building. The airport’s hours of flight operations are from 06:00 to 23:00, as it is located in such a densely populated area, but Avis is open from 05:00 to 23:00, every day of the week. Terminal 1 of Sydney Airport is the International Terminal, while the other two terminals handle all domestic flights. Terminal 2 and 3 are within walking distance of one another, but a transfer by bus, taxi or train is needed in order to reach Terminal 1. Passengers will need to pay for the transfer services. Conveniently, however, Avis is found in each terminal, and therefore passengers can go directly to Avis in their terminal of arrival. It is recommended that Avis Sydney Airport vehicles are booked in advance, and this can most easily be achieved online, from Avis’ website at www.avis.com.

Avis’ website displays all the terms and conditions which are applicable to their rental location at Sydney Airport, as well as the vehicle categories for hire. From Avis, customers will choose a car category, rather than vehicles by its specific make and model. The example cars and their luggage and passenger capacities can be used when deciding upon the right size of vehicle to hire. Vehicle categories at Avis include Economy, Compact, Intermediate, Standard, Full Size, Station Wagon, Premium, Prestige and Full Size Van, among a couple of other choices as well. Customers who are looking for a vehicle with low rental prices should consider a smaller sized car, such as the Hyundai Getz, found in the Economy and Compact car classes. This little car is ideal for city travelling, and has a passenger capacity of four. While it is very fuel efficient, it does not have much room for luggage, therefore be careful not to select a car that is too small for your belongings.

Intermediate, Standard and Full Size cars such as the Toyota Corolla, Mitsubishi Lancer and Holden Commodore are larger cars, able to seat up to five passengers, and store a reasonable quantity of luggage. They are also considered as comfortable for all types of travelling, with an automatic transmission and air conditioning. Automatic cars are used for disabled drivers in need of hand controls, which is a device that operates the brake and accelerator pedals of the vehicle. Disabled drivers can make use of hand controls at no extra charge, but they should be reserved in advance. A person unable to drive due to disability may also be able to rent a car with the assistance of a designated driver who is in possession of a valid drivers license. In this case, the credit card of the disabled person will be used for payment of the rental, while the drivers license of the accompanying person will be used for validation of the rental agreement.

Cars that are ideal for families may include those similar to the Holden Commodore Wagon, or even the Hyundai Imax, which is suitable for up to eight passengers. SUV's are also a popular choice by many renters, for example, the Toyota RAV4 and Mitsubishi Pajero GLS. Sydney Airport is a popular arrival point for many corporate individuals as well, therefore Avis offers a wide range of more elegant vehicles for hire that are ideal for prestigious business events and functions. These vehicles are found in the Premium, Luxury or Prestige categories, and may be similar to the Holden Calais, Holden Statesman and Holden Caprice V8. They offer many features that set them apart from the ordinary rented cars in terms of luxury and comfort.

At Sydney Airport, Avis requires their primary renters to be at least 21 years of age, and to have a valid national driving license that is printed in English. An International Driving Permit may be required in conjunction with licenses in a non-Roman alphabet or other foreign language. Drivers between the ages of 21 and 24 will also pay a higher rental rate for their hired cars, due to young drivers insurance added to the rental agreement. Customers may use a major credit card, such as American Express, Diners Club, MasterCard or Visa, as well as Avis Charge Cards for payments, and debit cards are also accepted in Australia, at Sydney Airport. The full rental charges must be available in debit card funds at the time of rental.

In terms of one way hires at Avis Sydney Airport, customers may return their vehicles to another rental location, but cars are not permitted to leave Australia. Cars may also not be taken on ferries between the mainland and Tasmania, or be driven into the Northern Territory or Western Australia. However, a one way hire is convenient for customers who will not be driving back to Sydney Airport, for whichever reason, and who would prefer to deliver the vehicle to one of the Avis downtown rental locations.

Avis, at Sydney Airport, will be happy to assist with all further enquiries.
