Frequently asked questions
How do I get a South Bend Avis rental car at a great price?
We strive to get you the lowest price, no matter when you book. However, booking your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need to bring when I get my car in South Bend?
You'll need to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's South Bend's minimum age to rent a car?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in South Bend is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to read through Avis's policy to know what the total cost is before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to South Bend?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in South Bend. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and good for short commutes. Commute times in South Bend average 27 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car provides a more comfortable ride. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then go for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their South Bend vacation can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in the United States. Many of the major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) usually cover your car rental. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large 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 South Bend. 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 book your car for your trip to South Bend. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my Avis rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You should get into your car with the needle at "F". However, if you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple 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 return the car to Avis.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in South Bend?
South Bend has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to find out what else Indiana has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in South Bend. If you are wishing to add a little adventure to your South Bend trip, you can also drive to Kennedy Water Park and enjoy an evening taking on the park's attractions.
Does South Bend Avis offer one-way car rentals?
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental car at a different location. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
