National Car Rentals in Durham: What you need to know

With so many neighborhoods in Raleigh, such as Durham, worth exploring, you'll need a vehicle to check out everything there is to do in this city. Public transportation, while affordable, drop you off far from your destination. Ride hailing is convenient, but you'd be surprised by which places they don't serve. Additionally, the cost of going from here to there can start to add up.

If you want the simplest way to get around town for a good price, then you are in the right place. Originally founded by a couple dozen independent rental car agents in 1947, National has grown from 60 locations in the U.S. to over 2,000 locations worldwide. National provides everything luxury to economy, allowing you to pick the ideal vehicle for your next holiday.

Frequently asked questions

How do I get a Durham National rental car at a great rate?

You are on your way to finding the best price on your car rental by going through us. Nevertheless, to make sure you get the most savings on your tip to Durham by doing a few things:

  • Compare the prices of vehicles
  • Avoid airport pick-ups and drop-offs, which can cost more
  • Know ahead of time the amount of fuel/mileage you may use
  • Search and reserve in advance

A little knowledge goes a long way to lower your rate.

Which forms of identification do I need when I get my vehicle in Durham?

Be sure 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 Durham?

Most suppliers, like National, set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. However, you may find that there is an additional fee if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles in particular. Go over National's to discover what the exact rate is before you book your rental

Is insurance required when you rent a car in the U.S. of A?

Most countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to buy temporary coverage with the National. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout. Most credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) will offer coverage. But many of them have restrictions, like not covering large vehicles like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you travel to Raleigh.

Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?

At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your National rental with a full tank, and you should return it filled up. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before returning the rental to National. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Most suppliers provide unlimited miles, but you want to ensure it's part of the bundle that you are purchasing. It's important to think about how many miles you will be driving on your trip to Durham. You don't want to be hit with any surprise overages if you don't have unlimited miles, so be sure you read the company's policy. You may need to get unlimited miles if you are planning to explore all that Raleigh has to offer, or even the U.S.A.
