What you need to know about car rentals in Sacramento
How do I get a Sacramento Avis rental car at a great price?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best price, whether you book. However, booking ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I have with me when I get my rental car in Sacramento?
Make 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 Sacramento?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Sacramento is 21. Take time to read through Avis's policy, as there may be additional fees if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals in particular.
What kind of Avis rental car should I get for my trip to Sacramento?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Sacramento. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a sedan or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Sacramento getaway can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in the United States. Many of the major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally provide some coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Sacramento. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also book 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 book your rental car. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my Avis rental with a full tank?
We suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your Avis rental with the needle at "F". 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 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you bring the car back to Avis. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Sacramento has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to find out what else California has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits after you've gone out downtown or gone out in Sacramento's downtown. If you are looking for more excitement on your Sacramento getaway, you can head to one of the two theme parks in the area. Embrace your thrill-seeking side, or take the fam to Funderland Park or Scandia Family Fun Center.
Does Avis offer one-way rentals in Sacramento?
Avis usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at another Avis. However, there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
