Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best deals on a Caen National rental car?
We strive to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your car. But reserving ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to go over 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 rental car in Caen?
You will need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Caen's minimum age to rent a car?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Caen is 18. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to check National's policies to determine if there is an additional cost before you book.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Caen?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Caen. Economy or compact vehicles are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Caen getaway 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 France?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in France. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States 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 reserve your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit can 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 suggest a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle topped off. However, 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 return the car to National. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Caen definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Caen National offer one-way car rentals?
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental at another National. However, there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
