Avis offers safety seats for babies and booster seats for older children, as well as satellite navigation systems. A GPS unit is a wonderful piece of equipment to have with you on your journey, especially if you are unfamiliar with the area in which you will be driving. They also usually come with an extensive list of pre-programmed points of interest, so that you will always be able to find the nearest gas station, hotel, pharmacy, restaurant, shopping center etc.
The Economy category offered by Avis is popular with many customers, as these vehicles are fuel efficient and affordable. They seat between four and five passengers, and are ideal for city driving.
