What should I bring with me when I get my car in Key West?
Be sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Key West?
Most suppliers in Key West require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check National's policy to know if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Key West?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Key West. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. Commute times in Key West are close to 34 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car more comfortable. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Key West 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 the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from National. Many major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) typically cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Make sure to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Key West.

Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to National?
We recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your National rental with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to National. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Key West's small-town atmosphere certainly has its charms, however you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Key West.
