If you want to see everything Minneapolis has to offer, there is no better way to do so from behind the wheel of a rental car from National. Don't spend time waiting for the bus or hailing taxis to go to the sights. When you have access to your own vehicle, you can go anywhere you want to go, when you want. Make your upcoming vacation to Minnesota more enjoyable with a National car rental.
With close to a half-million people, Minneapolis is a city that has plenty going on. Many tourists come to enjoy Minneapolis's local attractions. Of course, you can take the chance to appreciate the charm this town offers thanks to its small-town ambiance and a chance to experience the great outdoors. Whatever you pick to do first, you'll want to take in as much of Minneapolis as you can during your road trip. And with your National rental car, you'll be able to see and do more of what this city offers.
Originally 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 international locations. National provides everything economy to SUVs, allowing you to pick the best car for your upcoming getaway.
We try to get you the lowest price, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. However, booking your car ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Make sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
You will need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
Most suppliers in Minneapolis require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Take time to go over National's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals especially.
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Minneapolis. Compact or economy cars are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV will have more room for luggage and provide a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Minneapolis getaway can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
You are required to have insurance before you rent in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
National does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the model and make of the vehicle.
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You should get into your vehicle topped off. If you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to National. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Minneapolis has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to find out what else Minnesota has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Minneapolis.
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at another National. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
With so much to do and see in Minneapolis, having your own ride lets you explore at your own pace. When you are ready to see more of Minnesota, you can drive wherever you want to, without waiting for your ride to pick you up or having to be committed to a bus schedule.
Before you head out of town, book your National Minneapolis rent-a-car and visit all the must-do activities at your own pace. Reserve through CarRentals.com and hit the road in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
