Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best prices on a Mackay National rental car?
We strive to get you the best price, no matter when you book. However, booking well ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I bring with me when I get my rental car in Mackay?
You will need to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Mackay's minimum age to rent a car?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Mackay is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check National's policies to find out what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Mackay?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Mackay. Compact or economy automobiles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Mackay getaway can choose the premium category for a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Australia?
In Australia you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my National car rental?
National does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to National?
We encourage a full to full policy. You should get your car 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 fill up your tank before you return the car to National.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Mackay?
Mackay definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Mackay.
Does Mackay National offer one-way car rentals?
National typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at a different National. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
