If you want to see everything Doha has to offer, there is no better way to do so from behind the wheel of a rental car from National. Don't waste your time waiting for the bus or hailing taxis to go to the sights. Having your own vehicle enables you to go to the areas you want to see the most, whenever you want. Make your upcoming vacation to Qatar even more enjoyable with a National rental car.
With all there is to do in and around Doha, you'll want to explore more than your hotel room while on your stay. Whether you are dying to have dinner at that new cafe across town or check out some of the local favorites, you'll need your own car to explore as much as possible during your trip. Wherever you drive to in Doha, if you want to get the most from your trip, having your automobile is key.
Founded by a couple dozen independent car rental agents in 1947, National has grown from 60 locations in the U.S. to over 2,000 locations worldwide. National offers everything economy to luxury cars, allowing you to choose the ideal car for your next trip.
We strive to get you the best price, whether you reserve your car. But booking your car ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to check the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
You'll need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
Most suppliers in Doha require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Make sure to check National's policies, as there may be additional fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals especially.
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Doha. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV will have more room for everyone's luggage and be a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a little luxury on their Doha vacation can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
In Qatar you do need to have insurance before you rent from National. Many major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) typically provide some coverage. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Be sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Doha. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
National does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip to Doha. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
We recommend a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to National. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Doha definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Doha.
National usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at a different National. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
With so much to do and see in Doha, having the keys to your own auto lets you explore at your own pace. When you are ready to see more of Qatar, you can go wherever you want to, without having to coordinate ride-hailing services or spend time waiting for the bus.
Before you head out of town, book your National Doha car rental and take off to all the items on your itinerary at your own pace. Reserve with CarRentals.com and speed along the highway in Doha, Qatar.
