Customers who enjoy renting from Avis can become Avis Preferred Members. This membership is free, and offers many benefits.

All vehicles hired from Avis, at Glasgow Airport, will have a full tank of fuel at the beginning of the rental period, but there are various options when returning the vehicle. Fuel Up Front is the first option whereby customers will pay for a full tank of fuel ahead of their rental. This is a good option if you are likely to use all the fuel, and if you are in a hurry, as there is no need to re-fuel the vehicle when returning it. The second option is Pay On Return, and is automatically selected if you do not pay upfront for fuel. In this case you may still return the vehicle empty, but there will be a re-fueling service charge. However, you will only pay for the liters of fuel you used. The last option is Bring Back Full, and here you will re-fuel the vehicle before returning it to Avis and avoid any extra charges.
