What you need to know about car rentals in Hiroshima
How do I get a Hiroshima National car rental at a great price?
We try to get you the lowest price, whether you book. But getting your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car in Hiroshima?
You will need to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Hiroshima?
Most suppliers in Hiroshima require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Take time to go over National's policy, as there could be additional fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars especially.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Hiroshima?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Hiroshima. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a sedan or SUV will have more room for everyone's belongings and be a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Hiroshima vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Japan?
In Japan you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many of the major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) typically offer coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Hiroshima. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through 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 book your vehicle for your trip to Hiroshima. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly based 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 recommend a full to full 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 save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to National.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Hiroshima definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Hiroshima.
Does National offer one-way rentals in Hiroshima?
National typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at another National. However, there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
