Frequently asked questions

How do I get a Madrid National rental car at a great price?

We strive to get you the lowest price, whether you book. But reserving well ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.

Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Madrid?

You will need to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.

What's Madrid's minimum age to rent a car?

National's minimum age to rent a car in Madrid is 21. Take time to read through National's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals especially.

What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Madrid?

That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Madrid. Compact or economy vehicles are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have more room and provide a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a little luxury on their trip can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.

Is insurance required when you rent a car in Spain?

You are required to have insurance before you rent in Spain. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my National car rental?

National does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.

Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to National?

At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You pick up your National rental topped off. But, if you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to National.

Why should I get unlimited miles?

Madrid certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.

Does Madrid National offer one-way car rentals?

National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at another National. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
