Avis Budget Group opens new East Midlands store

Avis Budget Group is set to open a permanent car rental store at East Midlands Airport from March 17 2024.

The new brand will initially open temporarily within the airport grounds before settling at a permanent location with full Avis Budget branding. Vehicles can be reserved online from February 16.

The facility will be a short walk from the airport terminal within Mid-Stay car park 3. 

Avis Budget previously operated from East Midlands Airport until 2020. The new opening marks the transport provider’s return to the region. 

Alan Olivier-Smith, General Manager for Avis Budget Group UK, said: “East Midlands Airport is a great connecting point for Birmingham, Nottingham and the Midlands as a whole, and our new location will offer reliable services for those arriving at the airport from afar as well as the surrounding areas.”

Mel Darwell, Head of Commercial at East Midlands Airport, added: “We’re delighted to welcome Avis Budget to East Midlands Airport, which broadens the choices for onward journeys for our customers.”

“Travellers are set to benefit from a range of improvements at the airport from this summer onwards, including upgraded bar, toilets, seating and Wi-Fi facilities. The new presence of Avis Budget will further add to the effortless experience of flying from East Midlands Airport.”
