Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Brainerd National rental car at a great rate?
We try to get you the best price, whether you book. However, getting your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car in Brainerd?
Be sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Brainerd?
Most suppliers in Brainerd 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. Take time to go over National's policy to determine what the total cost is for you.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Brainerd?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Brainerd. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Brainerd vacation can choose the premium category for a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in the United States. Many of the major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally offer coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Be sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Brainerd. Otherwise, as a United States 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 vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your National rental with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to National.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Brainerd?
Brainerd's small-town atmosphere definitely is charming, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Brainerd. If you are hoping to add some excitement to your Brainerd trip, you can also drive to Paul Bunyan Land and enjoy a night riding the park's attractions.
Can I get a one-way rental from National?
National usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different location. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
