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 Visa or American Express, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions.

To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to National.
