What you need to know about car rentals
How do I find the best prices on a Darwin Avis car rental?
We try to get you the best rates, no matter when you book. However, booking well ahead of your visit 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 rental car in Darwin?
You'll need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Darwin?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Darwin is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to read through Avis's policies to know what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Darwin?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Darwin. Compact or economy vehicles are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or a sedan will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Darwin vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Australia?
In Australia you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) usually provide some coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Darwin. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also 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 reserve your rental car. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Darwin. Please be aware that the deposit will 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 suggest a full tank policy. You receive the car with full tank, and you should return it filled up. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Avis. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Darwin certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Darwin.
Does Darwin Avis offer one-way car rentals?
Avis typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different Avis. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
