The final part of the three part promotion from Air Canada, Avis and Fairmont Hotels that we still need to cover here on Rewards Canada is the car rental special from Avis. The first two parts can be found in the following posts:
- Save 20% on all Air Canada flights within Canada when you book by June 16 – good for travel until May 15, 2021!
- Fairmont Hotels Explore Canada offer – Get every 2nd night free for stays at 18 Fairmont Hotels until June 30, 2021
The Avis portion sees the car rental company also offer 20% off their base rates for rentals in Canada. These rentals need to be booked by June 16, 2020 and the actual rental only needs to be completed by June 16, 2021. You must quote AWD # C285901 when you book online at Avis.
Here’s a quick look at a 2 day rental in Toronto:
The above rental was quoted on the global Avis.com using the AWD # C285901. I also tested it out from the actual offer page on Avis’ Canada site Avis.ca and (not) surprisingly they charge more for the same rental even with the 20% off:
This comparison is for a 2 day rental from Avis at Pearson International and as you can see the .ca site is over $60 more for the exact same rental! So that’s the tip for finding the rental at a lower price – don’t book it on the .ca site. Go to Avis.com and manually enter the AWD # C285901 or just use the code that automatically populates with this link as it also gives you the 20% off.
One more comparison for you. This is Vancouver’s Georgia & Hornby Avis location – care to take a guess which screen shot is .ca and which is .com?
