Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best prices on a Bakersfield Avis rental car?
We strive to get you the best rates, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. However, booking well ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Make sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my vehicle in Bakersfield?
You'll need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Bakersfield?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Bakersfield is 21. Take time to go over Avis's policies, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles in particular.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Bakersfield?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Bakersfield. Compact or economy vehicles are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a mid-size car or SUV will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Bakersfield getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, offer 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 book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Avis require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Avis does require a deposit when you book your rental. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to return my Avis rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You receive the car with full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Avis. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Bakersfield?
Bakersfield has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to see what else California has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Bakersfield.
Does Bakersfield Avis offer one-way car rentals?
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental car at another Avis. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
