What kind of Avis rental car should I get for my trip to San Rafael?

That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit San Rafael. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer drives.
