Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Lerwick?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Lerwick. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or a sedan will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer trips.

Does the United Kingdom require car insurance?
In the United Kingdom you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from National. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle.

Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
We encourage a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to National. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
