As of August, customers of Avis South Africa are no longer allowed to smoke in rental vehicles, according to a report by iafrica.com.
Avis South Africa aims to maintain the cleanliness of the vehicles and prevent a residual smoke odor, says the report. If a customer is found to have smoked in an Avis vehicle, he or she will be charged to ensure the vehicle is fresh for the next renter.
“We acknowledge that there are vehicles that are currently on fleet that might have been smoked in and it will take some time before our fleet is completely smoke free,” Keith Rankin, Avis’ chief executive, Southern Africa told iAfrica.com. “Customers can rest assure that Avis will always try harder and ensure that all vehicles are kept clean and of a high standard.”
