What you need to know before you go
How do I find the best prices on an Aberdeen National car rental?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best rates, whether you book. But reserving your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to check the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car in Aberdeen?
Make sure to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Aberdeen's minimum age to rent a car?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Aberdeen is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to review National's policies to find out if there is an additional cost for you.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Aberdeen?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Aberdeen. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have more room and be a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Aberdeen vacation can choose the premium category for a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Scotland?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in Scotland. Many of the major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) generally cover your car rental. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Aberdeen. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does National require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
National requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to National?
We suggest a full tank policy. You should get into your automobile with a full tank. However, if you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to National.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Aberdeen?
Aberdeen certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Aberdeen.
Does National offer one-way rentals in Aberdeen?
National typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at another location. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
