Frequently asked questions
How do I get an Altenburg National rental car at a great price?
We try to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. But getting your car well ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I bring with me when I pick up my car rental in Altenburg?
Be sure to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Altenburg's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Altenburg set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Take time to read through National's policy, as there could be additional fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars especially.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Altenburg?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Altenburg. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a sedan or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Altenburg vacation can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Does Germany require car insurance?
In Germany you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from National. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my National car rental?
National requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my National car rental?
We recommend a full to full policy. You should get your car with the needle at "F". But, if you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, 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 Altenburg?
Altenburg certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Altenburg.
Does National offer one-way rentals in Altenburg?
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental car at a different National. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
