What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get a Darwin National rental car at a great price?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest rates, whether you book. However, reserving your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my vehicle in Darwin?
Make sure to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Darwin's minimum age to rent a car?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Darwin is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review National's policy to find out if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Darwin?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Darwin. Economy or compact automobiles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Darwin getaway can choose the premium category for a car 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 MasterCard or Visa, offer 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. Additionally, as a United States 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 requires a deposit when you book your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You pick up your National rental 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.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Darwin certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from National?
National usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at another location. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
