Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Budapest National rental car at a great price?
We try to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. However, getting ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need have with me when I get my car rental in Budapest?
You will need to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Budapest?
Most suppliers in Budapest require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check National's policies to know what the total cost is before you book.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Budapest?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Budapest. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a sedan or SUV will have more room for luggage and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Budapest trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Hungary?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in Hungary. Many of the major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) typically provide some coverage. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Budapest. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does National require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
National requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to National?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage 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. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station 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 Budapest?
Budapest certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Budapest.
Does Budapest National offer one-way car rentals?
National usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental car at another National. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.
