Treviso Airport is located approximately 3km, or 1.8 miles west-southwest of the city of Treviso, and 20km, or 12 miles from the city of Venice. This Italian airport is often referred to as the Treviso Venice Airport, or as the Treviso-Sant’Angelo Airport, and has been allocated the official airport code of TSF. Passengers of the airport arrive for business and leisure purposes, and often require some form of transport. A rented car is often considered as best, for it allows the freedom to travel when its convenient. Avis Treviso Airport is one of the car rental companies of the airport, and are a popular choice for all types of vehicles. Avis is well known around the world as an efficient, friendly and reliable car hire company.
Treviso Airport consists of a typical, single passenger terminal, with arrivals handled on the ground floor, and departure facilities found on the first floor. The offices of airport officials take over the third floor of the building. This is a new terminal building, opened in 2007, and features a range of modern and well-organised facilities. Arriving passengers have easy access to ATMs and currency exchange services, lost luggage services, tourist information, restrooms and the Treviso Airport car hire companies. At this airport location, Avis is open every day of the week, from 08:00 to 22:15, and are therefore convenient for the arrival times of the majority of flights to the airport. Avis’s rental counters are found in the arrival hall, and their vehicles are parked within walking distance of the terminal.
The easiest way to secure your Avis vehicle is online, from one of the websites which support Avis online reservations. The car category of your choice can be selected, and a quote for the time period you have specified will be provided. The customer should also include items such as child seats, satellite navigation systems and luggage racks in the rental, should they be required, and keep in mind that insurance for the vehicle is highly recommended, although not all types of insurance are compulsory. The insurances of collision damage waiver and theft protection can, however, be purchased locally from Avis at Treviso Airport, in order to reduce or even remove the insurance excess. Third party liability insurance is almost always included in a quote from a car hire company such as Avis.
Although equipment for the vehicle such as child seats will be an additional expense to your rental agreement, they can be essential for safety, and possibly even required by law. Children four years of age and under in Italy are required to travel in a suitably sized car seat. Always specify the age of your child so that Avis can provide a seat of the correct size. Older children, up until the age of twelve, may not travel in the front of the vehicle, unless a suitable restraint system is used, and all adult passengers/drivers are required to wear seatbelts. Road rules such as these in Italy are strictly enforced, as well as the laws against speeding and drunk driving. In general, the speeds on Italian roads should be no more than the following: 50kph in urban areas, 90kph on open roads outside of the city, 110kph on dual carriageways and 130kph on motorways (autostrada). Driving in Italy is on the right-hand side of the road, and cars should give way to others on their left-hand side when at roundabouts, unless otherwise signposted.
Italian airports cater for the needs of disabled passengers, by providing elevators, suitable toilet facilities, reserved car parking spaces and pavement ramps, and the Treviso Airport car rental companies often provide hand controls for disabled drivers. Avis hand controls are used by persons with a lower limb disability, as they operate the brake and accelerator pedals of automatic vehicles, and may include a steering wheel knob. At Treviso Airport, hand controls require an advanced reservation, but can be arranged at no extra charge. Additional options from Avis include one way hire services from Treviso Airport. One way hires can be driven to all rental locations in Italy, and may even be allowed to be driven out of the country. There may be extra charges involved, especially for Avis one way hires which are delivered to further locations.
Avis vehicles in Italy may be similar to the Fiat Panda 1.3 Dynamic, New Corsa 1.2 16V Enjoy, the Fiat Grande Punto 1.3 and the Nissan Micra 1.2. These are examples of smaller sized vehicles, and are ideal for driving in Italian cities. They are able to squeeze into small parking spaces as well! Although their rental rates are usually cheaper, families often hire cars with more luggage room, and more interior space, such as the Ford Focus 1.6, Volkswagen Passat 1.9 Wagon and the Chrysler Grand Voyager 2.8, for seven passengers. A Fullsize Van from Avis is the Ford Galaxy, and a Premium Van with room for nine people could be the same, or similar to the Nuovo Ducato Panorama 2.3. Further car groups available from Avis are Convertible and 4 Wheel Drive. Most vehicles come with a manual transmission, but a couple can be hired with an automatic transmission.
Customers can enjoy special benefits and privileges with the Avis Preferred membership, especially persons who rent more frequently from Avis. Some of the benefits include priority counter service, pre-prepared paperwork and dedicated call centre reservation lines. The rental counter can even be bypassed at certain Avis rental locations. To hire a car, the drivers must be 21 years of age or older, and have held a driving license in their country of residence for at least a year prior to the rental date. A major credit card will also be required.
