Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best rates on a Sydney Avis rental car?
We strive to get you the best price, whether you book. However, booking well ahead of your visit 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 should I have with me when I pick up my rental car in Sydney?
You'll need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Sydney's minimum age to rent a car?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Sydney is 21. Take time to review Avis's policy, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals especially.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Sydney?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Sydney. Compact or economy vehicles are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room and be a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a little luxury on their Sydney vacation can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Australia?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Australia. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through 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 reserve your car for your trip to Sydney. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
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 topped off. But, 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 gas prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to Avis. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Sydney certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
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 vehicle at another Avis. However, there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
