Whatever you have planned in Bogota, if you want to get the most from your trip, having your automobile is key.

What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get a Bogota National car rental at a great rate?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best rates, whether you book. But reserving your car well ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car rental in Bogota?
Make sure to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Bogota's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Bogota require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review National's policies to know if there is an additional cost for you.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Bogota?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Bogota. Economy or compact cars are ideal 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 and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Bogota trip can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does Colombia require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Colombia. Many of the major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) typically cover your car rental. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Bogota. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my National car rental?
National does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Bogota. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
We advise a full to full policy. You should get your car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back to National. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Bogota?
Bogota definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from National?
National usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at another National. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
