What you need to know for the road
How do I get the best prices on a Bathurst National rental car?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best rates, no matter when you reserve your car. But reserving your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Bathurst?
You'll need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Bathurst's minimum age to rent a car?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Bathurst is 21. Take time to read through National's policy, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles in particular.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Bathurst?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Bathurst. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV is going to have more room for everyone's luggage and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Bathurst trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Canada?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from National in Canada. Many major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) usually provide some coverage. However, many of them have limitations, 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 Bathurst. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my National car rental?
National requires a deposit when you book your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
We recommend a full tank policy. You receive the car with the needle at "F". If you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, 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 filling station before you return the car to National. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Bathurst?
Bathurst definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Bathurst.
Does National offer one-way rentals in Bathurst?
National usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at a different location. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
