Avis Car Rental Pescara Airport
Avis Pescara Airport
Pescara Airport is one of Italy’s smaller airports, serving just over 400,000 passengers in 2010, but is a perfect arrival point for many popular holiday destinations in the Abruzzo region. The airport is also known as Abruzzo Airport, as it is the only airport in the area, and is located approximately four kilometres from the city of Pescara. Motorists can reach the prominent city of Rome from Pescara Airport in just two hours, passing through the Apennine Mountains. Bologna and Naples are also nearby. Renting a car at the airport is the best transport solution, and many passengers choose Avis Pescara Airport car hire for their vehicle requirements. Avis is a worldwide car rental company, offering a large variety of vehicles for hire.
Especially during the busier tourist season, it is recommended to hire your vehicle in advance, from Avis’ website at www.avis.com. Their website provides all the information you need in order to choose the perfect hired vehicle for your travel requirements. Customers are also able to view Avis’ rental terms and conditions in detail, and read more about the types of vehicles available for hire. Reservations should also be made for items such as baby or booster seats, and satellite navigation systems, as these items are hired on a ‘first come first serve’ basis. Customers should specify the age of their child/children when hiring a car seat, so that the correct size may be provided. Vehicles can be collected from Avis's Pescara Airport car hire desk, on any day of the week. From Mondays to Fridays they are open between 08:30 and 23:15, while on Saturdays their hours are from 06:00 to 12:00. On Sundays Avis is available from 10:00 to 12:00, and from 18:30 to 23:15.
Rental terms and conditions at Avis Pescara Airport are very straightforward. In terms of insurance, Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) is optional, but Theft Protection (TP) is mandatory. Customers may be provided with adequate coverage from their credit card company, or may need to take out additional insurance from Avis. If you require additional coverage it is recommended to purchase it locally from Avis, as this will reduce, or even remove the insurance excess. A major credit card is required in the name of the primary renter for payment, and Avis accepts the cards of American Express, Diners Club, MasterCard / Eurocard, Visa and Avis Charge Cards. Debit cards are not accepted.
The minimum age to rent at Pescara Airport car rental is just 21, however, a young driver fee will be applicable to customers between the ages of 21 and 25. This is an extra charge per day of rental, and per underage driver registered on the rental contract, up until a maximum of ten rental days. Young drivers may also not be permitted to hire certain larger or specialty type vehicles. These cars are found in the car groups of H (Full Size), I (Intermediate), J (Economy), L (Premium) and N (Convertible). A valid drivers license is required to be shown on collection of the vehicle. Foreign renters may also like to have an International Driving Permit for their travels in Italy.
Economy vehicles at Avis are fuel efficient and less expensive to rent. They are smaller vehicles, ideal for city driving, and are very easy to operate. The Fiat Panda is an example of Avis’ smallest vehicle, seating four people, but only storing two small luggage items. The New Corsa 1.2 16V Enjoy and Fiat Grande Punto 1.3 are also available in the Economy category, while the Nissan Micra 1.2 is an example of an automatic vehicle in this category. Although ideal for single drivers or couples, families tend to hire larger vehicles than those found in the Economy class. Compact vehicles are of a similar size, and include the Volkswagen Golf 1.9.
Intermediate and Full Size vehicles are larger, seating up to five passengers, and have reasonable space for luggage as well. Example vehicles are the Mercedes Classe A180 (automatic), the Alfa Romeo 159 1.9 and the BMW Series 320D Eletta. Automatic vehicles are a popular choice amongst passengers who are more familiar with this type of transmission. Premium vehicles such as the Mercedes E220 CDI Classic, come with automatic transmissions as well.
Ideal family cars can be hired from the Intermediate Wagon category, for example, the Volkswagen Passat 1.9 Wagon, with space for more than five pieces of luggage, while Minivans are a good choice for those in need of a more spacious vehicle. The Chrysler Grand Voyager is found in the Minivan category and the Ford Galaxy 2.0 is a Full Size Van. Both seat up to seven passengers. Up to nine people can travel in the Fiat Ducato Panorama 2.3, from the Premium Van category.
