Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best prices on a Hamilton National car rental?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best rates, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. But getting your car well ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What do I need to bring when I get my rental car in Hamilton?
You will need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Hamilton's minimum age to rent a car?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Hamilton is 23. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to review 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 Hamilton?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Hamilton. Economy or compact vehicles are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have more room for luggage and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Hamilton getaway can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does Scotland require car insurance?
In Scotland you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from National. Many major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) typically provide some coverage. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Hamilton. Otherwise, as a U.S. 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 does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my National car rental?
We encourage a full to full policy. You should get your car with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to National. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Hamilton?
Hamilton definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit 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 easier to drop off your vehicle at another location. Be aware there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
