Frequently asked questions

How do I get a La Rochelle National rental car at a great price?

We try to get you the lowest price, no matter when you book. However, reserving well ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Make sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.

What should I bring with me when I pick up my car in La Rochelle?

Make sure to bring your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.

What's La Rochelle's minimum age to rent a car?

National's minimum age to rent a car in La Rochelle is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to check National's policy to find out if there is an additional cost before you book.

Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to La Rochelle?

That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in La Rochelle. Economy or compact vehicles are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have more room for luggage and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.

Do I need insurance when I rent a car in France?

You are required to have insurance before you rent in France. Many of the major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) usually provide some coverage. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger 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 . Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

National requires a deposit when you reserve your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.

What is the fuel policy on my National car rental?

We advise a full tank policy. You receive the car with full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to National.

Why should I get unlimited miles?

La Rochelle definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in La Rochelle.

Can I get a one-way rental from National?

National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental at another National. However, there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
