Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best deals on a Kent National car rental?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best price, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. But getting ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to check the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I have with me when I get my rental car in Kent?
Make sure to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Kent?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Kent is 21. Make sure to check National's policy, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals especially.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Kent?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Kent. Economy or compact vehicles are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size car or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Kent vacation can choose a higher-end category like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United Kingdom?
In the United Kingdom you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from National. Many major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) usually cover your car rental. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Kent. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also add on 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 reserve your car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
We advise a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle 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 find a filling station before you return the car to National.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Kent certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from National?
National typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at a different National. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
