Generally in the United Kingdom, the amount of the pre-authorisation is calculated based on:

  • The estimated vehicle rental price.
  • Plus the estimated price of all optional extras you've requested.
  • Plus a fixed amount of 200 £.
  • Less any amount we accept you have paid towards the rental when you booked, for example the cost of any accepted vouchers.

For rentals in Northern Ireland, credit cards must have available credit, and debit cards must have available funds to cover the estimated amount of rental charges plus up to 1500 £ for any incidental charges. If Avis zero excess cover is purchased, the pre-authorisation will only be in the amount of the rental and fuel, plus 250 £.

Please note that in certain location the amount may vary.
