If you want to see everything Fort Lauderdale has to offer, there is no better way to do so from behind the wheel of a rental car from Avis. Stop wasting your vacation waiting on the bus, or being nickel and dimed with ride-shares or taxis. Having your own vehicle allows you to go to the locations you want to see the most, when you want. Make your upcoming trip to Florida even better with an Avis car rental.
With over one-hundred thousand people, Fort Lauderdale is a city that has plenty going on. Visitors come to check out Fort Lauderdale's scenery that draws visitors from all over the country. No matter what you decide on first, you'll want to check out as much of Fort Lauderdale as you can during your vacation. And with your Avis rental car, you'll be able to see and do more of what this city offers.
We work with some of the best rental car dealers in the industry. The first rental car company located in an airport, Avis has over 70 years of providing rental cars to travelers from all over. With an assorted fleet of automobiles and over five-thousand locations internationally, Avis is sure to offer you a great experience from start to finish.
We try to get you the best price, whether you reserve your car. However, booking your car ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Make sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
You'll need to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Fort Lauderdale is 21. Take time to review Avis's policy, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category cars in particular.
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Fort Lauderdale. Compact or economy automobiles are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. Commute times in Fort Lauderdale average 25 minutes, so you may find a mid-size car or SUV provides a more comfortable ride. If you want to lower your emissions and save on gas, then choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Fort Lauderdale getaway can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Avis does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip to Fort Lauderdale. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with the needle at "F". But, if you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you bring it back to Avis. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Fort Lauderdale has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to see what else Florida has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Fort Lauderdale. If you need to add a bit fun to your Fort Lauderdale trip, you can also go to Uncle Bernie's Amusement Park and enjoy a day taking on the park's attractions.
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental at another location. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
With so much to do and see in Fort Lauderdale, having your own ride lets you explore at your own pace. When you are ready to see more of Florida, you can leave wherever you like, without trying to signal for a taxi or sign up for a ride-share.
