Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best rates on an Ottawa Avis rental car?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best rates, whether you book. But getting ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Be sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need to bring when I pick up my car rental in Ottawa?
Be sure to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Ottawa?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Ottawa is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over Avis's policies to find out what the total cost is for you.
What kind of Avis rental car should I get for my trip to Ottawa?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Ottawa. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV will have more room and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Ottawa vacation can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Canada?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in Canada. Many major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) typically offer coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Ottawa. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Avis car rental?
Avis requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my Avis rental with a full tank?
We advise a full to full policy. You pick up your Avis rental with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Avis.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Ottawa?
Ottawa definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from Avis?
Avis usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at another location. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
