If you don’t own a car in New York, rent one instead to head out of SoHo and into the Hamptons. Planning a family vacation to the beach? Explore Miami’s South Beach or Little Havana on four wheels, or take advantage of a rental car deal in Los Angeles to take your kids to the theme parks. Having a family reunion in San Francisco? Point your wheels west to reach the City by the Bay. Drive the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and visit Alcatraz. 
The vast majority of our rentals include Theft Protection, Collision Damage Waiver (CDW), local taxes, airport surcharges and any road fees. You'll pay for any ‘extras' when you pick your car up, along with any young driver, additional driver or one-way fees – but we'll explain any additional costs before you book your car (and taking your own child seats or GPS can be an easy way to reduce your costs). For more details on what's included, just check the Ts&Cs of any car you're looking at.
A simple rental car search at https://www.kayak.com/cars scans for prices on hundreds of travel sites in seconds. We gather car rental deals from across the web and put them in one place. Then on the search results page you can use various filters to compare your options for your preferred rental car type and easily choose the best car rental deal from all of the deals coming straight from the travel sites to your screen, with no extra fee from KAYAK.
Dallas Zoo: Situated three miles south-west of Dallas’ Downtown core, the Dallas Zoo is a popular family attraction that is home to more than 2000 animals. You can see penguins, elephants, giraffes, and gorillas — and in the Lacerte Family Children’s Zoo, your kids can enjoy pony rides, farmyard animals, and more. If you want to get closer to the creatures, you can take part in the Backstage Safari.
Pros: The rental car center at DFW is a somewhat longer than expected bus ride from your terminal, but busses seem to run on a regular basis. Once at the center, preferred customers are identified on a giant board with the space number marked and you just proceed to your car. Once you check out at the exit, you are on your way. Returns are just as easy, return to the center, get your receipt, and head toward the bus to your terminal.

Your rental experience really matters to us, so we show ratings and reviews from previous customers next to each listing. We ask customers to rate the supplier in seven key areas (including the condition of the car and the efficiency of counter staff), and their feedback will help you make an informed choice when you are deciding who to rent with. If you are keen to avoid hidden fuel charges, we recommend booking a car with a full-to-full fuel policy: as long as you refill the tank before dropping the car off, you won’t be faced with any refuelling costs.

In addition to your {{vm.loyaltyDetails.nextTierName}} benefits, you'll enjoy an automatic upgrade whenever it's available. You'll have an exclusive 800 number for reservations and service. Avis Preferred Plus is yours after completing {{vm.loyaltyDetails.rentalCountToPromote}} rentals or spending over $ {{vm.loyaltyDetails.rentalAmountToPromote}} in a calendar year.
Cons: I was overcharged and didn't realize it at the time. I reserved the car through CarRentals.com at a rate of $37/day. The salesman at the counter told me I could upgrade for $12/day and I agreed. I was charged $30/day more -- $67. When I turned in the car, they said they would email a receipt to me because their computers were down. I never received the receipt by email but my credit card was charged for the higher $67/day rate. I felt like the salesman was trying to upsell me. I will probably not use Avis again.
