Location Information

Whether you’re in Des Moines on business or for pleasure, you’ll have plenty to occupy your time, and the best way to get around to it all is with a quality rental car.

The Avis Car Rental is located right inside the Des Moines International Airport (DSM), so picking up your DSM car rental and getting on your way could hardly be more convenient. What’s more, you can accelerate your travel experience with Avis Preferred, a complimentary membership that allows you to skip the line and go straight to your car.

Avis’s fleet of Des Moines airport car rentals has a full range of deals on quality vehicles, from SUVs and luxury airport car rentals to eco-friendly hybrids and compact cars, so no matter what has brought you to Iowa’s state capital, we have the car that will get you there in style.

If you’re here for work, you’re probably in the agriculture or insurance business. Either way, entertaining clients is easy. There are many fine-dining restaurants in town, but for a real taste of Des Moines, try a fresh cut of Iowa-raised beef at one of the city’s steakhouses.

To see some of the city’s finest architecture, visit the Capitol Building. Home to some of the finest monuments and memorials in the city, including the Lincoln and Tad statue, it also provides a breathtaking view of the city’s downtown area.

If you want to recharge your batteries, go for a stroll through Pappajohn Sculpture Park and marvel at the art installations. In town during the summer months? Catch a baseball game at Principal Park or enjoy an outdoor concert.

Whatever activity you choose to pursue, you’ll arrive in style in one of Avis’s Des Moines International Airport rental cars.
