What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get a Chattanooga National rental car at a great price?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best price, no matter when you book. However, booking ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to check the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I carry with me when I pick up my rental car in Chattanooga?
You'll need to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Chattanooga?
Most suppliers in Chattanooga 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. Take time to go over National's policies to know what the total cost is before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Chattanooga?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Chattanooga. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Chattanooga trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many of the major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) generally cover your car rental. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Chattanooga. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through 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. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit will 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 tank policy. You receive the car 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 fill up your tank before you bring it back to National. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Chattanooga has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to see what else Tennessee has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Chattanooga. If you need to add some fun to your Chattanooga trip, you can also head to Sir Goony's Fun Zone and spend a night riding the park's attractions.
Does National offer one-way rentals in Chattanooga?
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental at a different National. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
