Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Kirkwall Avis car rental at a great rate?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best rates, whether you reserve your car. However, getting your car well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I have with me when I pick up my rental car in Kirkwall?
Be sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Kirkwall?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Kirkwall is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to review Avis's policies to know if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Kirkwall?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Kirkwall. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room and be a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Kirkwall getaway can choose the premium category for a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United Kingdom?
In the United Kingdom you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many of the major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) generally provide some coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Kirkwall. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage with 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 vehicle for your trip to Kirkwall. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Avis car rental?
We advise a full tank 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 find a filling station 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?
Kirkwall certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Kirkwall.
Can I get a one-way rental from Avis?
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at a different Avis. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
