Make your upcoming vacation to California even more enjoyable with an Avis car rental.
With over one million people making San Jose their home, you know there is going to be plenty to see and do in this bustling city. Visitors come to experience San Jose's thriving art scene and a rich past that is a beacon for history buffs. Whatever you decide on first, you'll want to take in as much of San Jose as you can during your road trip. Once you grab the keys to your Avis car rental, you'll be on your way to discovering more of this exciting city.
We work with the top rental car companies in the business. The first rental car business to be located in an airport, Avis has over seventy years of providing vehicles to visitors from all over. With over five-thousand locations all over the world and an assorted fleet of vehicles, Avis is sure to give you a great experience from pick-up to drop-off.
We strive to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your car. However, getting ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Be sure to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in San Jose is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Avis's policy to determine what the total cost is before you book.
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit San Jose. For bigger cities, like San Jose, you may find exploring and parking easier in a smaller car. Commute times in San Jose are around 29 minutes, so you may find a mid-size vehicle or SUV provides a more comfortable ride. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their San Jose getaway can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Avis requires 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 San Jose. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
We advise a full tank policy. You should get into your automobile 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 filling station before you return the car to Avis.
San Jose is a big city, so there is going to be a lot to do. You may not want to concern yourself about your miles if you are planning to see what else California has to offer.
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at another location. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
