Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Guimaraes National rental car at a great price?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest price, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. 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 unexpected fees.
What should I carry with me when I pick up my car rental in Guimaraes?
Make sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Guimaraes's minimum age to rent a car?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Guimaraes is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to check National's policies to find out what the total cost is before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Guimaraes?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Guimaraes. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size car or SUV is going to have more room and offer a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Guimaraes vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Portugal?
In Portugal you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) typically cover your car rental. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Be sure to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Guimaraes. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my National car rental?
National does require a deposit when you book your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my National car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full to full policy. You receive the car with full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to National. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Guimaraes definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Guimaraes.
Can I get a one-way rental from National?
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at a different location. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
