Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Salem Avis rental car at a great rate?
We strive to get you the best price, whether you book. However, getting ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to check the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my vehicle in Salem?
You'll need to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Salem?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Salem is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review Avis's policies to find out if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Salem?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Salem. Economy or compact vehicles are great for short drives and are easier to park. Commute times in Salem are close to 30 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car more comfortable. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Salem vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many of the major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) generally provide some coverage. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Salem. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can add on 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 book your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Avis rental with a full tank?
We recommend a full to full policy. You pick up your Avis rental with a full tank. However, 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 return the car to Avis.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Salem has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out what else Oregon has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Salem.
Does Avis offer one-way rentals in Salem?
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at another Avis. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
