National Car Rentals in Escondido: What you need to know

With so many neighborhoods in San Diego, like Escondido, worth exploring, you will want a vehicle to check out everything there is to do here. Buses or metro, while inexpensive, may not get you close to your destination. Ridesharing can be convenient, but you may be surprised by which cities they don't serve. Plus, the cost of going from here to there can really add up.

If you want convenience for a good rate, then you are in the right place. Founded by 24 independent rental car agents in 1947, National has grown from 60 locations in the United States to over 2,000 locations worldwide. National offers everything luxury to economy, allowing you to pick the ideal automobile for your next vacation.

Frequently asked questions about renting a car

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

We always tries to get you the best deal. Nevertheless, there are ways to get an even cheaper price on your upcoming rental:

  • Compare vehicle pricing before you book
  • Avoid pick-ups or drop-offs at airports, which can cost more
  • Determine ahead of time the amount of fuel/mileage you may use
  • Search and reserve as far in advance as you can

A bit of knowledge goes a long way to lower your price.

What do I need have with me when I pick up my rental car in Escondido?

Make sure to carry with you your credit card, as well as your driver's license.

What is the minimum age to rent a car?

Most suppliers, like National, require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Please note, you may find that there is an additional charge if you are under the age of 25 or for larger or higher category rentals especially. Read through National's to determine what the exact rate is before you rent your vehicle

Is there a particular vehicle I should rent for my trip to Escondido?

That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Escondido. If you are having a bit of trouble deciding, be sure to look over our table below. We have compared the most popular types of cars for you:

Car TypeBest forCategory includes
Full Size SUVBest for families who want comfort and to fit in all their luggageBMW X3, Ford Edge, or similar
Full SizePlanning a big trip with a large group of friends or family membersToyota Camry, Nissan Altima, or similar
Economy or Compact CarCouple or two friends heading to the beach and backToyota Yaris, Nissan Versa, or similar

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

The majority of countries require the driver to have insurance. You might be able to buy additional insurance through National for your trip, if you are concerned your insurance won't cover your rental during your trip. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout. Many major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, offer some coverage; but, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check National's policy before you decide.

Does National require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?

National, like several other rental agencies, requires a deposit upon reservation. The sum can vary greatly based on the type of automobile. Also, make sure you have enough funds on your credit card to lay down the deposit.

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

We advise a full tank policy. You pick up your National rental with a full tank, and you will want to return it with a full tank. For a cheaper rate, fill up your tank before you return the car to National. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Can I get unlimited mileage when renting a car in Escondido?

Many suppliers will offer unlimited miles, but you need to ensure it is part of the package. It's helpful to know how much you want to drive so you can plan your trip in advance. Although most rental car suppliers offer unlimited mileage, if it isn't part of your rental agreement, those miles can pile up—and so can the extra cost. You may need to get unlimited miles if you are thinking of taking some road trips to explore everything that San Diego has to offer, or even the U.S.A.

Are there any road trips I should take from Escondido?

Once you've explored Escondido, you'll be happy that you have your own car. If you like to hit the fairways when you are on holiday, then you've come to the right place. There are seven golf courses in San Diego. Want to work on your short game? Check out:

  • Meadow Lake Golf Course
  • Reidy Creek Golf Course
  • Vineyard At Escondido
  • Welk Resort San Diego
