What you need to know before you go
How do I get a Jena National rental car at a great rate?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best price, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. But booking ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Be sure to go over 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 Jena?
Be sure 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 Jena?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Jena is 21. Make sure to review National's policies, as there may be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles in particular.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Jena?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Jena. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size or SUV will have more room for everyone's luggage and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Jena trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Germany?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Germany. Many major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) usually offer coverage. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Jena. Additionally, as a U.S. 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 does require a deposit when you book your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to National?
We recommend a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle topped off. If you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to National. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Jena certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Jena.
Does National offer one-way rentals in Jena?
National usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at another National. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
