Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Austin?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Austin. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room and offer a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Austin trip can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.

You are required to have insurance before you rent from Dollar in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

Dollar does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Dollar will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my Dollar car rental?
