What you need to know about car rentals in Bologna
How do I find the best prices on a Bologna National car rental?
We strive to get you the lowest rates, whether you reserve your vehicle. But getting ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my vehicle in Bologna?
Make sure to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Bologna?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Bologna is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to review National's policies to know if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Bologna?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Bologna. Compact or economy cars are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size or SUV will have more room for luggage and be a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Bologna vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Does Italy require car insurance?
In Italy you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many of the major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) generally offer coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Bologna. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does National require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
National does require a deposit when you book your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You receive the car with the needle at "F". If you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to National. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Bologna definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from National?
National typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at a different National. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
