Five of the best fly-drives

See more of your destination with car hire from Avis, in partnership with British Airways

While a flight gets you to where you want to go, it’s a car that gives you the freedom to explore once you’re there. And now if you book your car with Avis at the same time as your flights with British Airways, you can enjoy great savings as well as the convenience.

Why not explore Barcelona in a convertible*? Or enjoy a week with your family, roaring around Florida in a 4x4? Booking your flights and car hire together is cheaper than booking them separately and you can relax knowing that your onward journey is taken care of once you reach your destination.

You can also collect Avios when you book your flight and car hire together. Get two Avios per £1 spent in addition to the standard Avios earned on the flight and car.

Hiring a car with Avis comes with great benefits. Enjoy 24-hour support, roadside assistance, collision damage waiver and unlimited mileage at most destinations.

So what can you do once you’ve touched down and buckled up? Below, we’ve chosen five of the best fly-drives to help you see more of your destination and make the most of your rental.



Fancy a drive along the French Riviera? Take the Grand Corniche road up to nearby Monaco and get a taste of the Formula One experience driving around parts of the famed circuit. Explore the beautiful mountain pass up to the Alps, or visit gorgeous beaches throughout the French Riviera, Monaco and Cannes. Choose from economy cars, intermediate or people carriers (which are ­ideal for families and larger groups). 



British Airways flies into three airports in Florida: Orlando International Airport, Tampa International Airport and Miami International Airport, which makes a fly-drive holiday easy and convenient. Combine an exciting holiday to Orlando with a relaxing Gulf Coast break or a lively weekend in Miami with a road trip to the Florida Keys. Hire an affordable compact car, a sleek convertible* or a family-friendly minivan.

Cape Town

Cape Town

Hire a car in Cape Town and drive to the lush winelands, stopping to sample the superb produce of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. Take in the breathtaking coastal scenery along the Cape Peninsula and see the penguins at Simons Town. On longer holidays explore the spectacular Garden Route National Park, with its beautiful beaches and dramatic forests.



Explore the Costa del Sol and Andalucia. Drive the kids to the Botanical Gardens, located on the outskirts of Malaga, or venture along the coast to glitzy Marbella and visit popular Torremolinos and Benalmadena en route. Avis offers a selection of car types, perfect for all travellers – from those on a budget to larger families.


Los Angeles

There’s plenty to see and do on the Pacific Coast Highway, especially if you combine your Los Angeles holiday with a trip to San Francisco or Las Vegas. Select the perfect vehicle for your trip, from an affordable economy car to an upgraded intermediate vehicle. And why not add a GPS for a stress-free trip?


And more...

Of course, you don’t have to buy a packaged fly-drive to get a great deal and earn Avios. Avis can be booked on at any time before you travel. Executive Club Members receive three Avios per £1 spent on Avis car rental, plus a free additional named driver on all rentals worldwide. Find out more and book at
