Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Canberra National car rental at a great price?
We strive to get you the lowest price, no matter when you reserve your car. But getting ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What should I carry with me when I pick up my car rental in Canberra?
Be sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Canberra's minimum age to rent a car?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Canberra is 21. Take time to review National's policies, as there could be additional fees if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles in particular.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Canberra?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Canberra. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Canberra trip can choose a higher-end model like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Does Australia require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in Australia. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer'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 book your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip to Canberra. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my National car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You should receive your vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to keep your expenses lower, 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 drive in Canberra?
Canberra definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does National offer one-way rentals in Canberra?
National usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at another National. However, there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
