Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Fairbanks National rental car at a great price?
We strive to get you the lowest price, whether you book. However, booking your car ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Be sure to check 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 car in Fairbanks?
Be sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Fairbanks's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Fairbanks require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Make sure to check National's policy, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles especially.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Fairbanks?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Fairbanks. Economy or compact cars are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Fairbanks vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from National in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

National does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
We advise a full to full policy. You should receive your vehicle with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to National.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Fairbanks's small-town atmosphere certainly is charming, but you may want to take to the road again after you've gone out downtown or had an evening out in Fairbanks's downtown.
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 at a different National. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
