Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Houghton Avis rental car at a great price?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best rates, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. However, getting ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Be sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I have with me when I get my car in Houghton?
You'll need to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Houghton's minimum age to rent a car?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Houghton is 21. Make sure to check Avis's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals in particular.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Houghton?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Houghton. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Houghton 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 the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent from Avis. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, 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 United States 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 reserve your rental car. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Houghton. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Avis?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You pick up your Avis rental with the needle at "F". But, if you return the 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 save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to Avis.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Houghton?
Houghton's small-town atmosphere definitely is charming, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Houghton.
Does Avis offer one-way rentals in Houghton?
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental car at another Avis. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
