Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Banff National car rental at a great rate?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best rates, no matter when you book. However, reserving your car ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need to bring when I pick up my vehicle in Banff?
You will need to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Banff's minimum age to rent a car?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Banff is 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 policy to know if there is an additional cost for you.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Banff?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Banff. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Banff vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Canada?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from National in Canada. Many major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally provide some coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger 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 Banff. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on 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 reserve your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my National car rental?
We suggest a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with full tank, and you should return it filled up. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you bring your car back to National.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Banff?
Banff definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does National offer one-way rentals in Banff?
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at a different National. However, there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
