- Renters under the age of 25 can rent an Avis car with American Express rewards points, but they may need to pay out of pocket insurance charges
To use Avis AMEXMR rewards points to rent a car from Avis, customers just need to check rates and availability first, then enter the date, time and location they’re looking to rent to see what vehicles are eligible and how much they’ll cost. Next, Avis renters just need to complete the “American Express Membership Rewards” redemption process to get their Avis rental certificate.
Avis AMEXMR Comments
- When customers get this certificate number from American Express, they just enter their dates and times again (along with location), and finish the rental process
- Customers who rent frequently from Avis may want to sign up for an “Avis Wizard” account, which saves their personal information, so it doesn’t need to be entered each time they rent
