Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Wilmington?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Wilmington. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and great for short commutes. Commute times in Wilmington average 34 minutes, so you may find a mid-size vehicle or SUV provides a more comfortable ride. If you want to lower your emissions and save on gas, then opt for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Wilmington getaway can choose a higher-end category like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from Avis. Many major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) generally cover your car rental. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs.

Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Avis?
We advise a full tank policy. You should get into your automobile with full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Avis. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Wilmington has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to find out what else North Carolina has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Wilmington. If you need to add some fun to your Wilmington trip, you can also drive to Jungle Rapids and enjoy an evening taking on the park's attractions.
