What you need to know for the road
How do I get the best rates on a Banff Avis car rental?
We strive to get you the lowest price, no matter when you reserve your car. However, reserving ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my vehicle in Banff?
You will need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Banff's minimum age to rent a car?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Banff is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over Avis's policy to know if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Banff?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Banff. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room and provide a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Banff trip can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Canada?
In Canada you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can purchase 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 reserve your rental. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip to Banff. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Avis?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your Avis rental 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 bring it back to Avis. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Banff?
Banff certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Banff.
Does Banff Avis offer one-way car rentals?
Avis usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at a different Avis. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
