An Avis Worldwide Discount (AWD) Number is a unique number assigned to an Avis account or programme that identifies eligibility for contracted features or rates. Identification of membership is required at time of rental.

An Avis Worldwide Discount (AWD) Number for advertised promotions may be found in newspapers, magazines or television ads; by clicking banner ads on websites; or on the avis.ca website.

If you're a member of an organization or company that partners with Avis, please contact that organization directly and ask whether it has an Avis Worldwide Discount Number you may use for your rental. Remember, company or organization AWD numbers may only be used by eligible persons and should never be disclosed to others.
