What you need to know before you go
How do I find the best prices on a Cartagena National car rental?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best rates, whether you book. However, booking your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Cartagena?
Be sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Cartagena's minimum age to rent a car?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Cartagena is 21. Make sure to check National's policies, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals in particular.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Cartagena?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Cartagena. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Cartagena getaway can choose a higher-end category like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Colombia?
In Colombia you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, 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 requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to National?
We advise a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank. If you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to National.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Cartagena definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Cartagena National offer one-way car rentals?
National typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at a different location. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
