There are many quality car hire companies available at Pisa Airport, also well known as Galileo Galilei Airport, including Avis Car Hire. Avis is a company which offers a wide range of vehicles to hire, at extremely competitive prices.
Avis, at Pisa Airport, is open every day of the week. Their hours of operation are from 08:00 to 23:00, although on Saturdays they are open until 23:30. Customers can hire a vehicle directly from the Avis rental counters at Pisa Airport, or they can make an advanced reservation, from www.avis.com, which is the address of Avis’ website.
When hiring a vehicle from Avis Pisa Airport customers have various insurance options. Collision Damage Waiver is optional, but Theft Protection is mandatory. Rentals are usually paid for with a major credit card, and the following cards are accepted by Avis: American Express, Diners Club, Mastercard, Eurocard, Visa and Avis Charge Cards. Debit cards are not accepted as a method of payment. All primary renters are required to be at least 21 years of age, and have a valid drivers license. A customer’s drivers license must also have been held in his/her country of residence for at least one year prior to the car rental. Younger drivers will pay a higher rental rate than usual, in the form of a ‘young drivers fee’, which is a daily rate charged per registered driver on the rental contract, up until a maximum of ten days. This additional daily charge is applicable for drivers between the ages of 21 and 25. Younger drivers will also not be able to hire from certain vehicle categories at Avis, and these include the car groups of H (Full Size), I (Intermediate), J (Economy), L (Premium) and N (Convertible).
All vehicles from Avis are divided into various car categories, and when renting a vehicle, customers will choose one of these categories rather than a car by its specific make and model. The Economy category is often a popular choice amongst many renters, as these cars are fuel efficient, easy to drive, and great for long or short distance driving. Their only downfall is that they do not have much space for luggage, therefore, if you have a heavy luggage load a larger vehicle may be more suitable. Economy vehicles generally seat up to four or five people. The Fiat Panda 1.2 Dynamic is an example of the Economy vehicles which have three or five doors, while the New Corsa 1.2 16V Enjoy, Fiat Grande Punto 1.3 and Nissan Micra 1.2 are Economy vehicles with five doors. The Nissan Micra also features automatic transmission, and has a bit more luggage room than the other Economy vehicles. Compact vehicles from Avis include the Volkswagen Golf 1.9, which is capable of seating up to five people, and has space for one large luggage item and one smaller luggage item.
Intermediate and Full Size vehicles may be a good option for average sized families, or even the business renter. They generally have more spacious interiors than the cars mentioned above. An automatic vehicle in the Intermediate range includes the Mercedes Classe A180, and an example of a manual vehicle in this category is the Alfa Romeo 159 1.9. Cars in the Full Size category include the BMW Series 320D Eletta. Business passengers arriving at Pisa Airport may well be interesting in hiring a vehicle from the Premium category at Avis. These are vehicles that are more stylish and elegant than the ordinary rented car, and are sure to create an excellent impression at any prestigious corporate function. The Mercedes E220 CDI Classic seats five people, and is available from this category.
Customers who require extra luggage room will find Avis’ Wagon vehicles ideal. They store five or more large luggage items, and are vehicles which offer a comfortable and safe driving experience. The Ford Focus 1.6 is available in the Compact Wagon category, and the Intermediate Wagon category features the Volkswagen Passat 1.9 Wagon. Vehicles in both of these categories can seat up to five people. Even larger vehicles can be hired from the car groups of Mini Van, Full Size Van and Premium Van. Any one of these categories will be a good choice for groups of travelers. Seven people can be seated in the Chrysler Grand Voyager 2.8 (Mini Van) and the Ford Galaxy 2.0 in the Full Size Van category. Up to nine passengers can sit comfortably in Premium Van vehicles, such as the Nuovo Ducato Panorama 2.3. All these vehicles also have plenty of space for luggage.
Car rentals need not be boring from Avis, at Pisa Airport, as there are the categories of Convertible and 4 Wheel Drive as well. The Peugeot 207 1.6 Convertible will definitely add some excitement to your holiday rental, while the Nissan X-Trail 2.0 is great for off-road driving.
Customers who are fond of renting from Avis may consider becoming an Avis Preferred member. This is a free membership, available to anyone 23 years of age or older, and regardless of whether you frequently rent a vehicle, or only occasionally need a car from Avis. Most Avis locations offer their Avis Preferred members pre-prepared paperwork, VIP treatment at the Priority Avis Preferred counters, and will have their cars parked in the most convenient spaces. Certain Avis locations even have a dedicated cabin in their car park, and will ensure that your keys are already waiting for you in the vehicle so that there is no need to stop at the rental counters. Avis Preferred members can also easily access all their details online, and use the dedicated call center reservation line.
