Avis Car Rental has announced the launch of its new location at Heathrow Airport Terminal 5, home to British Airways, making Avis the first car rental company to operate in the new terminal.
As the exclusive car hire partner for British Airways and Iberia, Avis has been chosen to be based at the terminal, providing accessible and convenient car hire for the 80,000 passengers using T5 every day.
By renting with Avis at Terminal 5, business and leisure travellers do not have to take a bus to their car rental facility and therefore save an average of 20 minutes on travel time, reducing the overall transfer time from plane to car.
With British Airways and its partner Iberia exclusively operating at Terminal 5, customers will also benefit from Avis’ partnership with both airlines, earning Avios points on all Avis rentals.
Avis Preferred customers will be able to enjoy the full range of benefits at the terminal, with customers able to use the Avis Preferred priority desk and take advantage of conveniently parked cars.
Commenting on the opening, Kaye Ceille, managing director, Avis UK, said: “Our launch at Heathrow Airport Terminal 5 forms an important part of our business strategy; to make high quality and accessible car hire available to those coming in and out of the UK, wherever and whenever they need it.
“We are delighted that Avis customers are the first to be served at Terminal 5 and are looking forward to offering a comfortable and convenient onward travel option.”
