AVIS Budget Group - AVIS France removes spare wheels!

I just rented a car at CDG airport, and discovered that it didn't have a spare wheel. After checking with AVIS, I was told they remove the spare wheels "to avoid theft".

But at the same time, they do not provide a repair / inflation kit to replace the missing spare wheel.

That makes their cars illegal, since in France, any car must have either a spare wheel or a repair / inflation kit.

If you get a puncture, first you have to wait for their Assistance (and try to contact them...), plus if the Police checks why you sand on the road side, they might fine you.

Totally unacceptable attitude, unique to France (one more!).

Know this before you run into trouble...
