What you need to know for the road
How do I get a Chiba National rental car at a great rate?
We strive to get you the lowest price, whether you book. However, booking your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I have with me when I pick up my vehicle in Chiba?
You'll need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Chiba?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Chiba is 21. Take time to check National's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles especially.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Chiba?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Chiba. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a mid-size or SUV will have more room for everyone's bags and provide a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Chiba vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Does Japan require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in Japan. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, 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. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase 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 Chiba. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to National?
We suggest a full tank policy. You should receive your automobile with a full tank. But, if you return your 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 fuel 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. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Chiba?
Chiba definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Chiba.
Can I get a one-way rental from National?
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at a different National. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you pick one-way.
