As of 2/12/14: We've had quite a few "Hey, come use this AWD. It's great" type of posts. When the AWD doesn't give a good discount, but is only posted to try to get renters to use the AWD of someone so the poster can earn free days from their Avis Corporate account.

From here out, please put the company/trade group/etc that's associated with the AWD or we'll delete the post to keep it on-topic here.

Anyone know this one? D486600

The AWD is: D486600

I have no idea what it is and a Google search returned nothing.

I did not add it my account and to my knowledge nobody added it for me, I checked with my Wife and that is not the AWD her employer uses, so I am completely stumped.
Anyone know what this discount code belongs to? Brings up fab deal for me... but I can't remember why the code is in my account either?!

AWD = AVIS WORLD WIDE DISCOUNT
I used the AVIS family and friends AWD G883000 (only saves about $40 off the total), and I live in New Zealand. As I mentioned in my follow up, Avis includes all taxes and fees up front on the reservation price if you're a non-US resident. Maybe this has to do with international competition levels or some international legislation, but either way it's working out in my favor this time around.

The issue with either code is that you may be asked for proof of employment and if you can't provide it, you'd be charged the walk-up rate. Other than that, no issues.

It's true for any discount code you don't actually qualify for. It's probably worth checking for discount codes you do qualify for (Costco, USAA, Southwest Rapid Rewards members, American Express cardmembers, etc.) as the rate may not be all that much higher and then you don't have to worry about being challenged at the rental counter.

Hi All,

First time poster here. I'm trying to find a good deal going one way from New Orleans Airport to Pensacola Airport July 14 1am - July 20 2pm. Over the last few days I've tried pretty much every code in this thread. Best I could find was using AWD G883000 (avis friends and family) with coupon code MUWA071 (25off). That's giving me a pay now rate of $578 total with taxes and fees for a Tahoe or similar with unlimited mileage. Do you think this is the best rate I will find for a one way in an SUV with unlimited mileage or should I keep looking? Does anyone have any other AWD that might get me a better rate? I don't mind doing a pay now, but will be bummed if a cheaper one comes up after I've already paid.

Thanks in advance for any help.

FYI, I rented in PHL recently and they have a sign near the Preferred Desk agents that basically says, "AWDs xxx, yyy, zzz, ... require proof from their employer before the contract is printed". There are at least half a dozen AWDs listed, two of them that I've seen in this thread, so be cautious using AWDs one doesn't qualify for.

Bombardier again

Resurrecting this precisely because it is so useful. I am eligible for Costco and USAA discounts at Avis, but it turns out that the Bombardier AWD posted here gives me a price that is literally 45% of the Costco discounted price, even without the coupon code (no longer valid) that tcitjh posted.

Since I am renting for three weeks, it is very tempting to try my luck. Am picking up from a downtown location, not airport, if that makes any difference.

Any recent experience using this code? Other advice? Thanks!

The AMEX code A047900 is quite good right now. Gave me a great rate for a pick up truck rental in California. Costco was second best.

Hello everyone, I am asking you for help in finding a discount code, I am from Poland and going to the US I will travel along the East Coast, I would like to rent a car in New York 07 August and return it to New Orleans 25 August ,because traveling with family I'm interested in a class car full size or premum , however, due to the loan and one-way trip the cost he is very expensive. A few months I am looking for good codes and discounts, however, all of which are on the company's website and give me a discount of up to $ 1,600.
Well, this Forum I found a few codes and their use gives a very promising effect
A972200
A442100
G417900
B449700
However, I am afraid that they may be unrecognized when I am already picking up the vehicle. are my fears justified?

That Bombardier code is insane. Too bad every location in Toronto asks for ID if you use it.

A 6 month rental with Bombardier is cheaper than my company's generous code by $1000.

30 day rental with Bombardier Code: $692 for Intermediate or $713 for Full Size
30 day rental with company code: $899 for Intermediate or $922 for Full Size.

Unreal.

Nobody is going to let you use the Bombardier code without showing employee ID.

Tried it.

I found this interesting anomaly so I thought I would pass it on. I am renting a car at SFO for 4 days and used Costco travel to search for prices. Since I was doing a quick price check I put in the days of travel but used the default of noon for the pickup and dropoff times. The result was that Avis was the lowest price with about $220 for a fullsize car. So I was going to book it and since my flight arrives at 12:30 pm I changed the pickup and dropoff times to 1 pm. Much to my surprise the price jumped to $350 for Avis and they were not even close to the lowest price on Costco travel. Initially I thought I had just entered something wrong the first time so I went back and changed the time back to noon with the same days. Viola the price dropped back to about $220. So being an engineer I decided to try 12:30 pm with the result of $220 again. So how about 2 pm, back to $350.
So I don't know how to explain this but it seems odd that a half hour pickup/dropoff time change would result in $130 increase in rental price.
