What you need to know before you go
How do I find the best rates on a Burlington Avis rental car?
We strive to get you the best rates, whether you book. But getting your car ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I bring with me when I get my vehicle in Burlington?
You'll need to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Burlington?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Burlington is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Avis's policy to determine what the total cost is before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Burlington?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Burlington. Economy or compact automobiles are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. Commute times in Burlington average 25 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car provides a more comfortable ride. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Burlington trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many of the major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) generally provide some coverage. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Burlington. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also 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 book your vehicle for your trip to Burlington. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Avis rental with a full tank?
We suggest a full tank policy. You should get your vehicle topped off. If you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to Avis. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Burlington's small-town atmosphere certainly is charming, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Burlington.
Does Avis offer one-way rentals in Burlington?
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at another location. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
