What you need to know for the road
How do I find the best rates on a Mountain View Avis rental car?
We try to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you reserve your car. However, getting your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What should I carry with me when I pick up my vehicle in Mountain View?
You will need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Mountain View?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Mountain View is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to check Avis's policy to find out if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Mountain View?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Mountain View. Compact or economy vehicles are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size car or SUV is going to have more room for everyone's luggage and provide a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Mountain View getaway can choose a higher-end model like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from Avis in the United States. Many major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) typically offer coverage. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Mountain View. Otherwise, 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 book your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Avis rental with a full tank?
We recommend a full to full policy. You receive the car with the needle at "F". But, if you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Avis. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Mountain View has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to see what else California has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Mountain View.
Does Avis offer one-way rentals in Mountain View?
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at another Avis. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
