How old do you have to be to rent a car in St. Paul, Minnesota?

Avis customers age 21-24 can rent from a limited vehicle selection for a fee ($27 per day) as long as the customer has a valid driver’s license and an Avis-honored credit card. Customers older than 25 are not subject to this fee or vehicle restrictions.

What’s the best type of car to rent in Minnesota?

The best type of car to rent in Minnesota will vary depending on the extreme seasons experienced in this state. Convertibles can be nice on a warm spring day, but you’ll want something sturdier, like an SUV, if you’re here during winter months.

Passenger Van Rental

Whether you’re traveling with a large group of friends to catch a concert at St. Paul’s vibrant music scene or you’re traveling with many coworkers for a business conference, get a van rental to accommodate everyone. With 12- and 15-passenger van options, choose from Ford Transits or similar models.

Minivan Rental

Minivan rentals are ideal for those traveling with children. The Twin Cities have consistently been named one of the most family-friendly areas to live, so rent a minivan to enjoy the many kid-friendly activities in the area, like the Minnesota Children’s Museum.

SUV Rental

During the colder months, you’ll need an SUV to handle the snow and slick roads. Our SUV models, such as the Chevrolet Tahoe and the Ford Edge, offer both durability and comfort for all seasons. They’re perfect for loading up gear for a day trip on the Mississippi River.

Long-Term Car Rental

If you’ll be staying in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area for more than a few weeks, consider a long-term car rental. Avis long-term or monthly car rentals offer even lower rates than daily rentals, and you’ll still get all the benefits of roadside service and upgraded GPS systems.

Convertible Car Rental

A warm spring or autumn day in the Twin Cities is the perfect excuse to indulge yourself with a convertible car rental. Cruise around the scenic Lake Harriet in a Ford Mustang convertible, a Chevrolet Camaro convertible, or similar vehicle.
