An official website of Avis announced that after February 2009, smoking is no longer permitted in Avis
rental vehicles in Singapore. This is an effective measure aimed at boosting air quality and comfort in
a car rented. Through this strict no-smoking policy, Avis aims to make a car rental an even more
enjoyable experience - especially for the large non-smoking majority. Experience abroad has shown
that ever more customers are demanding no-smoking car. As the same story in the hotel sector,
where many guests now explicitly wish to stay in a 'nonsmoking room'.

Since April 2008, there has been a smoking ban in Avis rental vehicles in the countries of Austria,
Czech Republic and Switzerland, The Avis Finland says all cars provided by Avis are smoke-free.
It seems to me the situation has changed. Rental car companies now 'insist' rather than 'request'
that customers not smoke in its cars.


No smoking notice placed on the Hertz rent-a-car office in Helsinki.


The sign plate proved by a rental-car office at Hertz, Helsinki says that smoking is prohibited all
Hertz' rental vehicles. Failure to adhere to these rules can result in an additional cleaning charge
( minimum 100EUR + tax ).

British National Car Rental and Guy Salmon have announced that their fleets
of a rental car will be strictly nonsmoking. All the vehicles will have a sticker
prominently displayed on the dashboard.




 In October 2009, Avis and Budget announced that their fleets in the countries of United States
and Canada would be 100% smoke-free. For the violation of this rule will be charged a cleaning fee of
up $250 on customers who smoke in the cars. The spokesman of the Avis Budget Group said that the
most frequent request they get is for a smoke-free car, and a common customer's complaint is a car
that smells of smoke. No employees who drive the vehicle are allowed to smoke, and the cars undergo
a new inspection upon return. It eats a more cost to clean a smoky car, and it often has to be taken out
of service longer.
