Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best prices on a Fort Lauderdale National car rental?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. But reserving your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I bring with me when I pick up my car rental in Fort Lauderdale?
Be sure to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Fort Lauderdale's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Fort Lauderdale set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check National's policies to determine if there is an additional cost for you.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Fort Lauderdale?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Fort Lauderdale. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and good for short drives. Commute times in Fort Lauderdale average 25 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car more comfortable. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then go for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Fort Lauderdale vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent from National. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my National car rental?
National requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You should get your car topped off. 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 save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring your car back to National.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Fort Lauderdale?
Fort Lauderdale has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to see what else Florida has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Fort Lauderdale. If you want to add some adventure to your Fort Lauderdale trip, you can also go to Uncle Bernie's Amusement Park and enjoy an evening taking on the park's attractions.
Does National offer one-way rentals in Fort Lauderdale?
National typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at another National. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
