Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Houston?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Houston. For bigger cities, like Houston, you may find navigating and parking easier in a compact vehicle. Commute times in Houston average 26 minutes, so you may find a mid-size vehicle or SUV more comfortable. If you want to lower your emissions and save on gas, then choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Houston trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

Avis requires a deposit when you book your rental. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Houston. Please note that the deposit may 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 advise a full to full policy. You pick up your Avis rental with full tank, and you should return it with a full tank. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Avis.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Houston is a large city, so there is going to be a lot to do. You may not want to worry about your miles if you are planning to see what else Texas has to offer. Those searching for more entertainment to their Houston vacation can head to one of the two theme parks in the region. Embrace your thrill-seeking side, or take the gang to Fun Plex or Zuma Fun Center.
