What you need to know before you go
How do I find the best deals on an Oxford Avis rental car?
We try to get you the best rates, no matter when you book. However, booking your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car rental in Oxford?
Be sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Oxford?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Oxford is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Avis's policy to find out what the total cost is before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Oxford?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Oxford. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and ideal 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 offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Oxford getaway can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United Kingdom?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in the United Kingdom. Many of the major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) typically provide some coverage. But 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 Oxford. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Avis car rental?
Avis does require a deposit when you book 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 vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my Avis car rental?
We recommend a full to full policy. You pick up your Avis rental with the needle at "F". However, if you return your 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 gas prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to Avis.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Oxford?
Oxford definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from Avis?
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at another Avis. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
