Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Douala Avis rental car at a great rate?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your car. However, booking your car well ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my rental car in Douala?
You will need to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Douala?
Most suppliers in Douala set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to review Avis's policies to find out if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Douala?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Douala. Compact or economy automobiles are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Douala vacation can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Cameroon?
In Cameroon you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, provide 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. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on 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. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Douala. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Avis?
We advise a full to full policy. You receive the car 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 your car back to Avis. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Douala?
Douala definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Douala.
Can I get a one-way rental from Avis?
Avis usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental car at another location. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
