Venice Airport is also known as Venice Marco Polo Airport, and is situated approximately 8 miles from Venice. It is an international airport with all the amenities that arriving and departing passengers require, including a wide choice of car hire companies. Avis is one of the car rental companies at Venice Airport, and their rental counters can be found in the arrivals area of the terminal building. Avis offers quality vehicles, affordable rates and excellent customer service. Other car hire companies at this airport include Hertz, National, Easycar, Sixt, Budget, Alamo and Thrifty.
At this location, the primary renter is required to be at least 21 years old, and have a valid drivers license from his country of residence, which has been held for at least one year. In some cases an International Driving Permit will be required. It is best to find out from Avis if this will be applicable to your rental. Younger drivers between the ages of 21 and 25 will need to pay a ‘Young drivers fee’, which will be a certain rate per day of rental, up until a maximum of ten days. Drivers within this age group will also not be able to rent vehicles from the following car categories: H (Full Size), I (Intermediate), J (Economy), L (Premium) and N (Convertible). Payments for rentals can be made with a major credit card (American Express, Diners Club, Eurocard, Mastercard or Visa), or with an Avis Charge Card. No debit cards are accepted.
There is a good selection of vehicles available from Avis, at Venice Airport, and these vehicles are all divided into various car categories. There are twelve car categories available at this Avis location, ranging from smaller fuel-efficient vehicles in the Economy category to larger vehicles in the Mini Van and Full Size Van categories. One of these car categories will be selected when renting a vehicle rather than a car by its specific make and model. Vehicles in the Economy category include the Fiat Panda 1.2 Dynamic, New Corsa 1.2 16V Enjoy, Fiat Grande Punto 1.3 and Nissan Micra 1.2. These vehicles are ideal for city driving, but do not have much room for luggage, therefore longer road trips may require a larger vehicle. However, the Nissan Micra does have space for two large luggage items and three smaller luggage pieces, which is quite good storage space for an Economy vehicle. Compact vehicles include the Volkswagen Golf 1.9.
Cars ideal for seating up to five passengers can be hired from the categories of Intermediate, Full Size, Compact Wagon and Intermediate Wagon. Wagon vehicles are excellent for carrying large amounts of luggage, as five or more large items will fit nicely into the car. Example vehicles available in these categories include the Ford Focus 1.6 and Volkswagen Passat 1.9 Wagon. The BMW Series 320D Eletta is available in the Full Size category, while the Mercedes Classe A180 and Alfa Romeo 159 1.9 can be found in the Intermediate car category.
More interesting vehicles can be rented from the Premium, Convertible and 4 Wheel Drive categories. Premium vehicles are perfect for any important business occasion or private function, and include the Mercedes E220 CDI Classic, while convertibles are just fun vehicles for the wild at heart! Avis’ 4 wheel drive vehicles are tough and hardy, perfect for off-road driving, and include the Nissan X-Trail 2.0.
Avis, at Venice Airport, has a wide selection of larger vehicles to offer as well. The larger family or a group of friends will find that these vehicles fit their travel needs perfectly. The Chrysler Grand Voyager 2.8 can accommodate up to seven people and five or more large items of luggage, while the Nuovo Ducato Panorama 2.3 is ideal for up to nine passengers. The Full Size Van category features the Ford Galaxy 2.0, which seats up to seven people.
