How do I find the best prices on an East London National car rental?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best price, no matter when you book. But booking your car ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my rental car in East London?
You'll need to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in East London?
Most suppliers in East London require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Take time to go over National's policies, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals especially.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to East London?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit East London. Economy or compact cars are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV will have more room and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their East London trip can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in South Africa?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in South Africa. Many of the major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) typically offer coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to East London.

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 rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my National car rental?
We suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your National rental with a full tank. If you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to National.

East London definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in East London.
Can I get a one-way rental from National?
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at a different location. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
