There is no better way to see everything Townsville has to offer than by getting behind the wheel of your Avis rental car. Don't waste time waiting for the bus or hailing taxis to go to the sights. When you have the keys to your own vehicle, you can go wherever you want to go, whenever you want. Make your next getaway to Australia even better with an Avis car rental.
With everything to do in and around the Townsville area, you'll want to take in more than just your hotel room while on your trip. Whether you have to try the cafe that has gotten great reviews across town or see some of the local hot spots, you'll need your own car to explore as much as possible during your getaway. No matter what you have planned while in Townsville, if you want to get the most out of your visit, having your car is a must.
We work with the best car rental dealers. Avis was the first car rental business located in an airport and they have over 70 years of providing rentals to visitors from all over. With over five-thousand locations globally and an assorted fleet of automobiles, Avis is sure to give you a great experience from beginning to end.
We strive to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you reserve your car. However, booking well ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
You'll need to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Townsville is 21. Make sure to review Avis's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles in particular.
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Townsville. Compact or economy vehicles are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Townsville vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Avis in Australia. Many major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) usually offer coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Townsville. Additionally, as a U.S. 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 rental for your trip to Townsville. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You should get your automobile with full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank of gas. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Avis. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Townsville certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at another location. However, there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
With so much to do and see in Townsville, having the keys to your own vehicle lets you explore at your own pace. When you're ready to check out more of Australia, you can drive when you want to, without trying to wave down a taxicab or sign up for a ride-share.
Before your next holiday, book your Avis Townsville rental car and zip off to take in all the must-do activities. Reserve through CarRentals.com and speed along the road in Townsville, Australia.
