Frequently asked questions
How do I get a New Orleans Avis rental car at a great price?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your car. However, booking ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to check the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I bring with me when I pick up my rental car in New Orleans?
You will need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's New Orleans's minimum age to rent a car?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in New Orleans is 21. Take time to go over Avis's policy, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals especially.
What kind of Avis rental car should I get for my trip to New Orleans?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit New Orleans. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a little extravagance on their New Orleans trip can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Cadillac or Audi 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. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, 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 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 car for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Avis car rental?
We suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your Avis rental topped off. But, if you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Avis. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
New Orleans has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to see what else Louisiana has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in New Orleans. If you need to add a little excitement to your New Orleans trip, you can also go to Carousel Gardens Amusement Park and spend an afternoon riding the park's attractions.
Does Avis offer one-way rentals in New Orleans?
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at a different Avis. However, there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
