Free (Almost) Avis Weekend Rental

If there’s one thing desis in America love more than their children or parents, it’s saving money!

So here’s an attractive deal that’s hard to beat.

I’d even go so far as to say it’s a Great Deal!

Avis Weekend Deal

Car rental service Avis has an excellent deal where you can get a weekend deal for free, almost.

You just pay some taxes that should work out to no more than a buck or two.

Here’s the link to the Avis Weekend Deal.

Enter coupon Code: TUEA002

The deal should work for cars from sub-compact to full-size.

My understanding is that the weekend deal is valid for rentals up to June 30, 2013.

Don’t be scared by the prices displayed on the main screen because they will be adjusted on the next screen after you hit the “continue” button at the bottom.

Caveat Emptor

As always with any deal, there will be some catches and fine print.

Make sure you understand what you’re signing up for thoroughly before clicking on the Reserve button.

I’m sorry I don’t have any “Free Gas” deals for you! 😉

UPDATE – Avis Tricks

Avis canceled our reservation on March 27, 2013, more than 24-hours after it was fully confirmed and approved!

We think Avis is playing games, trying to collect personal information from potential customers for nefarious ends.

Please do NOT TRUST any Avis reservations. If you’re making a car rental reservation, think Hertz, Enterprise or any of the other companies.

Here’s the full text of the Avis e-mail we received at 10:45PM on March 27, 2013:


At Avis, our goal is to provide a stress-free rental experience whenever you need a rental car. Upon review of your recent reservation, XXXXXXXXUS4, it has come to our attention that the discount code you have entered is invalid, and so your reservation has been tentatively cancelled. If you have a valid coupon certificate, we are ready to restore your reservation. Please note, you must present your valid coupon certificate at time of rental. Prepaid reservations will be refunded in full and no cancellation charges will be assessed.

If you would like to recreate your reservation, you may do so by visiting or calling 800-633-3469.

We apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation may have caused. We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future.

Screw Avis!

    Hmm… Maybe too many desis availed of this offer already. When I try to use the code it says that this code cannot be used online.

    Please let us know when you find the “free gas” deal ! Responds:

    It worked just fine for me and now I’m searching for a place to go. 😉

    It was too good a deal to last long!

    It seems the coupon cannot be used for online reservations… I got the following message when I tried to check the rates with the coupon.

    This coupon can not be applied to online reservations. Please present this coupon at the counter. Responds:

    It worked fine for me and I’m wondering if I can go to Canada and return in two days! 😉

    I’ve always wanted to see if the Niagara is really a better sight from the Canadian side. The last time we went to Niagara we couldn’t cross the bridge because we had a relative from India with us

    Sweetie, you were likely a bit late because a deal like this would have swamped Avis’ servers like a DDOS attack!
