That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Columbia. Compact or economy cars are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. Commute times in Columbia average 36 minutes, so you may find a mid-size vehicle or SUV more comfortable. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then choose a hybrid vehicle.

In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Avis. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions.
