Be sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Arcachon?

Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Arcachon?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Arcachon. Economy or compact automobiles are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size car or SUV will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Arcachon trip can choose a higher-end category like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Does France require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Avis in France. Many major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) typically provide some coverage.

Do I have to return my Avis rental with a full tank?
We encourage a full tank policy. You should get your automobile with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Avis.
