What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get a Hamilton National car rental at a great rate?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best rates, whether you book. But reserving ahead of time can help keep spending low. 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 get my car rental in Hamilton?
You will need to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Hamilton?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Hamilton is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review National's policy to know what the total cost is before you book.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Hamilton?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Hamilton. Compact or economy vehicles are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room for luggage and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Hamilton trip can choose a higher-end car model like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in New Zealand?
In New Zealand you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered 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 add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my National car rental?
National requires a deposit when you book your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model 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 receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to National. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Hamilton definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Hamilton.
Does Hamilton National offer one-way car rentals?
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your vehicle at a different National. Don't forget there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
