Frequently asked questions

How do I get the best rates on a Salvador Avis rental car?

We try to get you the best rates, whether you book. However, reserving ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.

Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car rental in Salvador?

Be sure to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.

What is the minimum age to rent a car in Salvador?

Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Salvador is 21. Take time to read through Avis's policy, as there may be additional fees if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles especially.

Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Salvador?

That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Salvador. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size car or SUV will have more room for everyone's belongings and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a little luxury on their vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.

Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Brazil?

You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Avis in Brazil. Many of the major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) typically offer coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to .

What is the fuel policy on my Avis car rental?

We suggest a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring the car back to Avis. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Salvador definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Salvador.

Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at another Avis. However, there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
