Avis reminder emails now contain awd code check warning

When I logged in to my Avis account this morning, a popup appeared asking "Do you still work for, or are affiliated with, (my company name)?" I clicked Yes (still employed by said company) and it thanked me for confirming, along with telling me that I may be subject to verification.

No issues for me as I still am entitled to both business and leisure AWD use, but Avis may be stepping up checks again similar to what happened last year. I don't have any planned rentals with them until September but will report back next time I rent.

Question - did they just look at it, or did they take a copy of your employee ID. I'm a bit concerned over HR compliance and security policies if someone has access to my ID (such as through a picture of it). ?

I'd suggest asking your HR Department what they want you to do when you are renting a car on company business, and the car-rental company asks to see and/or photocopy your company ID. Don't make it your problem; make it HR's.

I would assume a business card would suffice, no?

As for the insurance issue, if on personal business, the employer's carrier would deny the claim, and employee's auto policy would pick it up (assuming it was a short term rental and not a car that should be listed on their personal auto policy).

That doesn't mean one might be violating their companies travel policy, but it shouldn't get the company crossways with their insurer. The bigger issue comes from declining the insurance your company provides, as it may have much higher limits than yours, your personal policy may exclude business driving, etc.

If the employee doesn't have their own insurance then they better purchase it through the rental car company on personal travel.

.
Don't some of the AWDs for personal travel include the benefit of the insurance waiver? (for the rental car, not liability)
