Use of the Vehicle

The vehicle rental service provided by Avis Peru is exclusively for private use. Its use is prohibited to offer the public transportation service for people or goods, participation in competitions and for driving lessons and/or exams


In order to provide a vehicle to you, Avis Peru will request a temporary authorization on a part of your line of credit available with Visa, MasterCard, Diners Club, American Express or Discovery. This authorization works as a guarantee and its release is requested as soon as you return the vehicle in the same conditions in which you rented it.

Important points to remember:

  • Variation of the authorization amount: The authorization amount varies depending on the vehicle you choose, your final destination and other factors specific to your rental; increasing by up to 30%.
  • Warranty release process: Although Avis Peru requests the release of the authorization at the time of returning the vehicle, the bank issuing your credit card is responsible for the final processing.
