Avis Rent a Car, one of the UK’s best known car hire brands, recently announced that it has increased the number of rental locations across the country by 50 per cent. In just the last two months Avis has managed to open the doors at a total of 37 brand new sites offering customers more convenient access to leisure vehicles.

However, the vehicle supplier does not intend to stop there and has announced that more than 100 new locations will be opening over the course of this year. The firm has already seen rapid expansion in cities and towns as far afield as Windsor, Huddersfield and Sunderland.

Avis also has a presence in 38 airports in the UK and the additional sites are part of the hire firm’s continuing commitment to making vehicles available to customers in all corners of the UK.

The company has teamed up with Regus in 21 of the new locations so that customers can book vehicles easily through the solutions provider.

Avis UK’s commercial director, Anthony Ainsworth, said: “50% growth of Avis’ town and city branches in just two months is a significant achievement for us and puts us another step closer to reaching our ultimate goal of having an Avis branch within a few miles of every household in the UK. Next year will see the number of Avis branches increase with a further 100+ locations, demonstrating our commitment to giving customers the choice to find a car hire solution that best suits their needs.”
