Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Cotonou Avis rental car at a great rate?
We strive to get you the lowest price, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. But reserving ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to check the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Cotonou?
You will need to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Cotonou's minimum age to rent a car?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Cotonou is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional 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 Cotonou?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Cotonou. Compact or economy vehicles are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room and be a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Cotonou trip can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Does Benin require car insurance?
In Benin you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, give 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 U.S. 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 requires a deposit when you book your rental car. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Cotonou. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my Avis car rental?
We recommend a full tank policy. You should get your automobile with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to Avis.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Cotonou?
Cotonou definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Cotonou.
Does Cotonou Avis offer one-way car rentals?
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at another Avis. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
