What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get a Hamilton National rental car at a great rate?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest price, whether you book. However, reserving well ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car rental in Hamilton?
You'll need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Hamilton's minimum age to rent a car?
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. Take time to read through National's policy to determine 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 activities you want to do in Hamilton. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Hamilton trip can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Canada?
In Canada you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many of the major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) typically provide some coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Hamilton. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also 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 car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Hamilton. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to National?
We encourage a full tank policy. You pick up your National rental 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 bring the car back to National. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Hamilton?
Hamilton certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Hamilton National offer one-way car rentals?
National usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at another National. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
