Automatic 1 class upgrade with Avis and a BA executive club card

Always book an automatic car in the lowest bracket and you will always get 2 or 3 group upgardes as there are no group A's available.....

if you speak to Naz at holiday autos though he will tell which deal is the best around - like including with airfares etc and if you tell him that you a member of the Desert Wives you will get a discount as well - AA get Mrs AA to do it. there is a special rate for us on his web or at least there was.
