What you need to know about car rentals in Bilbao
How do I get the best rates on a Bilbao National rental car?

What should I bring with me when I get my rental car in Bilbao?
Make sure to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Bilbao?
Most suppliers in Bilbao require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Make sure to check National's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles in particular.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Bilbao?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Bilbao. Economy or compact automobiles are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a mid-size car or SUV is going to have more room for everyone's luggage and be a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Bilbao getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Spain?
In Spain you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from National. Many major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) generally offer coverage. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or 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 Bilbao. Additionally, 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. 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 make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
We encourage a full to full policy. You should get into your car with a full tank. 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 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to National. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Bilbao?
Bilbao certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Bilbao.
Does National offer one-way rentals in Bilbao?
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at a different location. However, there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
