If you want to see everything Utica has to offer, there is no better way to do so from behind the wheel of a rental car from Avis.

Utica is a perfect spot when you need some respite from hustle and bustle of a big city. Visitors come to enjoy Utica's local attractions and outdoor activities. Whatever you decide on first, you'll want to see as much of Utica as you can during your vacation. And if you need to mix it up from Utica's easy-going vibes, then jump in the driver's seat of your Avis car rental and see what else is out there.

That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Utica. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV will have more room and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a little luxury on their Utica vacation can choose a higher-end model like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Avis in the United States. Many of the major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally offer coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Utica. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Avis requires a deposit when you book your rental. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip to Utica. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to keep your expenses lower, 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.
Utica's small-town atmosphere certainly has its charms, however you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Utica.
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at a different Avis. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
With so much to do and see in Utica, having access to your own car lets you explore at your own pace. When you're ready to explore more of New York, you can go when you want to, without waiting for your ride to pick you up or figuring out a bus schedule.
