What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get the best rates on a Bordeaux National rental car?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest rates, whether you book. But reserving ahead of time can help you save even more. Make 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 get my car in Bordeaux?
Make sure to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Bordeaux's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Bordeaux set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Make sure to review National's policy, as there could be additional fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars especially.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Bordeaux?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Bordeaux. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Bordeaux trip can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Does France require car insurance?
In France you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally offer coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Bordeaux. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can book 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 book your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my National car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You receive the car topped off. 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 fuel prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, 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 drive in Bordeaux?
Bordeaux definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Bordeaux National offer one-way car rentals?
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at a different location. However, there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
