What kind of Avis rental car should I get for my trip to Albany?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Albany. Economy or compact vehicles are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Albany getaway can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Avis in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, offer 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.

What is the fuel policy on my Avis car rental?
We recommend a full tank policy. You should receive your car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to Avis.
