Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Tacoma Avis rental car at a great rate?
We try to get you the best price, whether you book. But getting your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What should I have with me when I get my car rental in Tacoma?
You'll need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Tacoma?
Avis's minimum age to rent a car in Tacoma is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to check Avis's policies to know what the total cost is before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Tacoma?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Tacoma. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and good for short drives. Commute times in Tacoma average 26 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 choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a little luxury on their Tacoma getaway can choose a higher-end model 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 from Avis. Many of the major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally offer coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Be sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Tacoma. Otherwise, as a United States 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 book your rental. Avis will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my Avis car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full to full policy. You should get into your vehicle with full tank, and you should return it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you bring the car back to Avis. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Tacoma?
Tacoma has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out what else Washington has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Tacoma.
Does Avis offer one-way rentals in Tacoma?
Avis offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at another location. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
