They give u an AWD
Might be possible to add two AWD on res. By calling but don't think its possible doing it online

i never heard of using multiple AWD's... There isn't even a space to enter more than one...
Does anyone have different information?

Did you try booking with a different AWD?

How can i use two? there is only a spot for one. When I remove the price changes.

how does this work with insurance? if its not completely charged to a cc will the cc cover damage?

i had to use my premium rental insurance on a one day rental recently so i realize how important it is
nothing to do with each other

So I canceled my purchase since it appears using two awd's is not possible, but for some reason avis mailed them out to me anyways. Do you think they are still valid?

Knowing Groupon, probably. They have too much cash on their hands, exploit them before they go belly-up...

IME, you CAN stack AWDs. Put the coupon AWD in the saved preferences of your Avis Preferred/First profile; then, enter the AWD with the rates you want on the Avis site when making the booking. My experience with Avis in Israel has shown that both AWDs will show up in the reservation. YMMV.

As Avis Israel is really Dan* company, so do whatever you have to do to get the best rate, and at the rental location, if you ask the nicely (or even maybe over the phone to any Avis), they will just swap your awd to whatever you like.

In countries owned by Avis, such a change would obviously affect the price, not so however in Israel and other countries just using the name Avis.


*similarities with real life persons is not intentional.

Here in Israel, I swap AWDs all the time. It can be done when opening the contract, closing it... or even up to (approximately) 12 hours after the contract is closed. :-O
Some desk agents may give you a problem, but it CAN be done.

Also, the stacking trick I mentioned before actually works well, to the extent that on occasion I've peeked at the desk agent's screen, and seen that there are two fields: "AWD1" and "AWD2". So they clearly are set up for this kind of thing...
