Although customers are welcome to hire a vehicle directly from Avis’ rental counters at Turin Airport, it is recommended to make an advanced reservation from Avis’ website, at www.avis.com.

Similar to all other car hire companies, Avis has certain rental terms and conditions which need to be understood by all customers. In Italy, the insurance of Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) is optional, but Theft Protection is mandatory. Both insurances are taxable. If your credit card does not offer the cover that you need, it is best to purchase this insurance locally from Avis, as this will reduce or even remove the insurance excess. All primary renters are required to have a major credit card in their name for payment of the rental. The credit cards accepted by Avis include American Express, Diners Club, MasterCard / Eurocard, Visa and Avis Charge Cards. Debit cards and cash are not accepted.
All primary renters need to be at least 21 years of age to hire a vehicle from this Avis location, and should be in possession of a valid drivers license. It is common practice for car hire companies to charge a higher rental rate for younger drivers between the ages of 21 and 25. This is referred to as a ‘young driver fee’, and is a rate applicable per day of rental, and per underage driver registered on the rental contract, up until a maximum of ten rental days. At Avis, younger drivers are also not permitted to hire from the car groups of H (Full Size), I (Intermediate), J (Economy) and N (Convertible). Foreign drivers may be required to have an International Driving Permit as well, especially if their local license is printed in a non-Roman alphabet. However, even if Avis does not require you to have an IDP, it is always recommended to have one when travelling in a foreign country.
All vehicles at Avis, Turin Airport, are divided into various car groups, for example, Economy, Compact, Intermediate, Full Size, etc. Each group contains cars of a different size or type. Even though these cars may not be the same make and model as the example vehicles shown on Avis’ website, you will receive a similar car with similar features. Economy category vehicles are a popular choice amongst many renters, as they are easy to drive in the city and very fuel-efficient. Some vehicles in this category only seat four people, such as the Fiat Panda 1.2 Dynamic, while others seat up to five, like the New Corsa 1.2 16V Enjoy, Fiat Grande Punto 1.3 and Nissan Micra 1.2. The Nissan Micra is an automatic vehicle. Although these vehicles do have space for five passengers, families may need a larger vehicle, as they don’t have much space for luggage.
Larger vehicle are found in the Intermediate, Full Size and Premium categories, for example, the Mercedes Classe A180, Alfa Romeo 159 1.9, BMW Series 320D Eletta and Mercedes E220 CDI Classic. These vehicles all have many features that make them very comfortable to drive, in particular those in the Premium category. Premium vehicles are often used for more prestigious business events or functions, or even for private occasions, such as weddings. Intermediate vehicles can have manual or automatic transmissions, while all Premium vehicles are automatic. Avis also has a range of station wagons, such as the Volkswagen Passat 1.9 Wagon, and larger minivans and vans, such as the Chrysler Grand Voyager, Ford Galaxy and Nuovo Ducato Panorama 2.3.
