What you need to know about car rentals in Halifax
How do I get the best deals on a Halifax National rental car?
We try to get you the best price, whether you book. However, booking your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car rental in Halifax?
Make sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Halifax?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Halifax is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to read through National's policy to know what the total cost is before you book.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Halifax?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Halifax. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have more room for luggage and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Halifax trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Canada?
In Canada you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from National. 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 purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does National require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
National does require a deposit when you book your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Halifax. Please be aware that the deposit may 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 advise a full tank policy. You pick up your National rental with a full tank. 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. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to National. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Halifax?
Halifax definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from National?
National usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at another location. However, there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
