Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best rates on a Calais National car rental?
We strive to get you the best price, whether you reserve your vehicle. But reserving your car well ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car in Calais?
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 Calais?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Calais is 21. Take time to go over National's policy, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles in particular.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Calais?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Calais. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have more room for everyone's belongings and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Calais 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. Many of the major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) usually provide some coverage. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Calais. Additionally, 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 reserve your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Calais. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the model and make of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
We suggest a full to full policy. You receive the car topped off. But, if you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, 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 Calais?
Calais certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does National offer one-way rentals in Calais?
National typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at a different location. However, there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
