Avis Kelowna Airport
Kelowna International Airport is located approximately 11.7km, or 7.1 miles from the city of Kelowna, and is one of the major airports in British Columbia, Canada. It is served by the airline companies of Air Canada, Horizon Air, WestJet, Central Mountain Air and SkyWest Airlines, just to name a few, and they have flights to a variety of destinations in Canada, the United States and Mexico. The airport has been allocated the official IATA code of YLW, that is also used as an acronym by the airport which stands for Your Link to the World. Facilities available for arriving passengers include car rental companies such as Avis Kelowna International Airport. Customers of this car hire company enjoy reasonable rental rates and a number of useful services.
The single terminal building of Kelowna’s Airport is easy to navigate, and has a variety of facilities for its passengers. There are some nice shops and restaurants, as well as all business and banking services that are usually required. Arriving passengers will also find the Tourism Kelowna Visitor Information Kiosk very useful, and that the car hire companies are nearby to the arrival area. Avis customers can book online for their vehicle, as an advanced reservation is recommended, or may hire a vehicle directly over the rental counters. The rental counters of this location are open from 06:30 to midnight, seven days a week.
Persons renting a car are usually required to be at least 25 years of age, however, the majority of car rental companies allow persons aged between 21 and 24 to hire a vehicle as well. They will, however, pay an additional fee for young drivers insurance that is applicable per day of car hire, and per young driver listed on the rental contract. This could amount to around $35.00 per day, which is automatically added to the usual rental costs. Younger drivers will also not be able to hire a car from all vehicle categories, as those from Minivan, 12-Passenger Van, Specialty and SUV are not permitted. Additional drivers listed on the rental agreement will also incur a fee, and there could be costs if the Avis Roadside SafetyNet option is chosen for the vehicle. RSN covers the cost for assistance with key replacement, lockouts, tire change service fees, emergency fuel deliveries (up to three gallons) and jump starts. All passengers hiring a vehicle are recommended to arrange sufficient vehicle insurance from Avis.
Debit cards are not accepted by the majority of the Kelowna International Airport car rental companies, therefore, the primary renter will be asked to supply one of the major credit cards, which include American Express, AT & T Capital, Diner’s Club, Discover, Mastercard, Visa, JCB, Diner’s Club Int’l, Peterson, Howell and Heather (PHH), GE Capital and Sears. The credit card will be required at the start of the rental period, as a hold for the estimated rental charges will be placed on the account, and at the end for the final payment. However, although a debit card cannot be used for the initial hold, it will be accepted for the final payment. Although Avis will include every cost possible in the rental quote, there could be additional charges for extensions or late returns. Vehicles are usually hired on a daily basis, therefore a return that is late could be liable for a full day’s extra charges. Make sure you always arrive in good time to return the vehicle, and for your departure flight from Kelowna Airport.
Although most customers return their hire cars to Kelowna International Airport, one way hires can also be arranged, which means that the car is allowed to be returned to another Avis rental location. Avis one way hires are usually permitted to be driven to all parts of British Columbia, and maybe even further to cities in the neighbouring provinces. However, customers who will be driving into the United States of America will need to make enquiries about a cross-border rental, which may or may not be permitted. One way hire services may incur additional charges.
Some of the most popular cars hired from the Kelowna International Airport car hire companies are similar to the Hyundai Accent, Hyundai Accent Sedan and the Chevrolet Impala. They are cars found in Avis’ Economy, Compact and Fullsize vehicle categories, and are ideal for city driving or long distance driving. The smaller cars generally come with cheaper rental rates, while the larger cars are a little more expensive to hire, but do offer more space for their passengers and for luggage. Intermediate cars such as the Chrysler 200 Sedan are also popular choices. Minivans are ideal for up to seven passengers, and are similar to the Dodge Grand Caravan, while SUVs come in a variety of sizes. For five, the Ford Escape is ideal, while for seven the GMC Yukon and the Chevrolet Suburban are available. Avis also offers a number of vehicles in their Specialty categories, for example, the BMW 328I, Fiat 500 Convertible, Ford Mustang GT Convertible, Cadillac CTS, Fiat 500 Sport, Volkswagen Beetle and the Dodge Challenger RT.
All cars from Avis can be hired with additional items of equipment, such as child seats and satellite navigation systems. These items will cost a few extra dollars per day of car hire, or per car rental contract. Persons with a lower limb disability can hire Avis hand controls, a device that operates the brake and accelerator pedals of certain automatic vehicles. From Kelowna International Airport, hand controls are free of charge, but will require an advanced reservation. Find out all further information from Avis, Kelowna International Airport.
