Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Chaves National rental car at a great price?

What's the minimum age to rent a car in Chaves?
Most suppliers in Chaves set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Make sure to review National's policies, as there could be additional fees 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 Chaves?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Chaves. Economy or compact cars are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Chaves vacation can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does Portugal require car insurance?
In Portugal you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) usually offer coverage. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Chaves. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my National car rental?
National does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip to Chaves. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my National car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You pick up your National rental with a full tank. However, if you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you bring your car back to National. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Chaves?
Chaves definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Chaves.
Does National offer one-way rentals in Chaves?
National usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at a different location. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
