If you visit an Avis rental location without requesting an Ultimate Test Drive, no cars for sale will be available. Ultimate Test Drive cars must be requested in advance and are picked up at an Avis rental location. A rental agent provides the keys to a rental car that matches the requested model, but the rental agent is not a salesperson. Drivers must meet all Avis requirements for vehicle rental. Drivers pay a discounted rental rate for the period of the test drive if it exceeds two hours. The rental fee is waived if a car is purchased. The car purchased may not be the exact car rented during the Ultimate Test Drive.
