How old do I have to be to rent a car in Atami?

Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Atami?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Atami. Compact or economy vehicles are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have more room for everyone's luggage and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Atami getaway can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Japan?
In Japan you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from National. Many of the major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) typically cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Atami. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also 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. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip to Atami. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my National car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You pick up your National rental with full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank of gas. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you bring the car back to National. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Atami definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Atami.
Can I get a one-way rental from National?
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at a different National. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
