Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?

When driving in City or the rest of the U.S.A., you'll need insurance. Avis requires that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. The majority of countries require driver's insurance. You might be able to purchase additional insurance through Avis for your trip, if you know your insurance won't cover your rental. Moreover, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through during checkout.

The major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) will typically cover your car rental. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you travel to San Diego.

Does Avis require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?

Avis, like many other rental car agencies, requires a deposit upon reservation. The sum can vary greatly based on the type of vehicle. Additionally, be sure there is enough funds on your credit card to make a deposit.

Do I have to fill up the tank before I take my car back to Avis?

We encourage a full tank policy. You receive the car topped off. But, if you return the rental with less than the amount you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, fill up your tank before returning the rental to Avis.

Can I add unlimited mileage when booking a car in City?

The majority of suppliers will offer unlimited miles, but you need to ensure it's part of the package. It's helpful to know how far you want to drive so you can plan your trip in advance. Although most rental car companies offer unlimited mileage, if it isn't part of your rental agreement, those miles can pile up—and so can the extra cost. You may want unlimited miles if you are imagining some road trips to explore all that San Diego has to offer, or even the United States.
