What's Baltimore's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Baltimore set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review National's policies to know what the total cost is before you book.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Baltimore?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Baltimore. Compact or economy cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. Commute times in Baltimore are around 26 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car more comfortable. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Baltimore trip can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in the United States. Many of the major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) generally cover your car rental. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs.

Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to National?
We recommend a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle topped off. However, if you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to National.

Baltimore has over half a million people, so there should be plenty to do. Unlimited miles allow you to see what else Maryland has to offer without being concerned about your limits.
