Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best prices on a Gainesville National car rental?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best price, whether you reserve your car. But getting ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Gainesville?
Make sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Gainesville?
Most suppliers in Gainesville require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over National's policies to find out if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Gainesville?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Gainesville. Economy or compact vehicles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Gainesville trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from National in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does National require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
National requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to National?
We suggest a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to National.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Gainesville?
Gainesville has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to see what else Florida has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Gainesville.
Does National offer one-way rentals in Gainesville?
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at a different National. However, there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
