Avis Introduces Chauffeur Rentals

Avis Rent A Car System, LLC recently announced a new premium service called Avis Chauffeur Drive through which Avis customers can rent a car and hire a professional driver at the same time.

Avis Chauffeur Drive is the product of a new alliance between Avis and WeDriveU, Inc. WeDriveU provides fully insured and certified chauffeurs who provide professional driving services using the customer's vehicle.

The new service costs $30 per hour with a three-hour minimum, plus standard rental car charges. Customers can rent the vehicle and use a WeDriveU chauffeur during the entire rental period, or as needed. If a driver is used intermittently during a rental period, the three-hour minimum applies each time.

Avis Preferred members can reserve their chauffeur by calling 800-272-5839 at least 24 hours prior to rental pickup time. Customers using Avis Chauffeur Drive will be billed separately for the driver charges by WeDriveU.
