National Car Rentals in Laval: What you need to know
Laval is just one of many neighborhoods in Montreal that are worth exploring, and, you'll need your own car to check out everything there is to do here. Local buses, while cheap, may not drop you off exactly where you need to go. Ride hailing, like Uber or Lyft, can be convenient, but rural areas may not have timely service. Plus, if you plan to go all over Laval and the surrounding areas, the cost can add up.
If you want the convenience to go where you need to at an affordable price, then you are in the right place. Originally founded by two dozen independent car rental agents in 1947, National has grown from 60 locations in the United States to over 2,000 locations worldwide. National offers everything SUVs to economy, allowing you to choose the ideal automobile for your next holiday.
Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best rates on a Laval National car rental?

Almost all countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to pay for temporary insurance through the National. Most credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) will provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, like not covering bigger vehicles like premium models or some SUVs. Be sure to call and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you travel to Montreal.

National, like several other rental companies, requires a deposit when you book. The amount can vary greatly depending on which vehicle you book. Also, make sure there is enough funds on your credit card to pay the deposit.

We encourage a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. For a cheaper rate, fill up your tank before you bring it back to National.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Laval?
The majority of suppliers offer unlimited miles, but you want to ensure it's part of the package. It's important to determine how much driving you will be doing ahead of time on your trip. You don't want to be hit with any surprise overages if you don't have unlimited miles, so be sure you understand the company's policy. You may want unlimited miles if you are planning to see what else Montreal has to offer, or even Canada.
