What you need to know about car rentals in Sarasota
How do I get a Sarasota Avis car rental at a great rate?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best rates, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, getting your car well ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Make sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my vehicle in Sarasota?
You will need to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Sarasota's minimum age to rent a car?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Sarasota 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 know if there is an additional cost for you.
What kind of Avis rental car should I get for my trip to Sarasota?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Sarasota. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and good for short commutes. Commute times in Sarasota average 25 minutes, so you may find a mid-size vehicle or SUV more comfortable. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then go for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Sarasota trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in the United States. Many major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) generally provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Sarasota. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on 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 reserve your rental car. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip to Sarasota. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Avis?
We recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your Avis rental with the needle at "F". But, if you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to Avis.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Sarasota?
Sarasota's small-town atmosphere certainly is charming, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Sarasota.
Can I get a one-way rental from Avis?
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at another location. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
