Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Cairns Avis car rental at a great price?
We strive to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, reserving your car well ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Make sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What do I need have with me when I get my rental car in Cairns?
Be sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Cairns?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Cairns is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to review Avis's policies to know if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Cairns?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Cairns. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Cairns vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Australia?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Australia. Many major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) typically provide some coverage. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Cairns. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Avis car rental?
Avis requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Avis rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You should get into your car with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Avis. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Cairns?
Cairns certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Cairns.
Can I get a one-way rental from Avis?
Avis typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different Avis. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
