Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Gilroy?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Gilroy. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and good for short drives. Commute times in Gilroy average 27 minutes, so you may find a mid-size vehicle or SUV more comfortable. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then go for a hybrid vehicle.

Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Avis in the United States. Many major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) usually offer coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs.

Do I have to return my Avis rental with a full tank?
We recommend a full to full policy. You pick up your Avis rental topped off. If you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back to Avis. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Gilroy's small-town atmosphere certainly is charming, however you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Gilroy.
