What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get a Madison National car rental at a great price?
We strive to get you the best price, no matter when you reserve your car. But booking ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I carry with me when I get my rental car in Madison?
Make sure to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Madison's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Madison require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to review National's policy to find out if there is an additional cost for you.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Madison?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Madison. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and ideal for short drives. Commute times in Madison average 30 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car more comfortable. If you want to decrease your emissions and save on gas, then choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Madison vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from National in the United States. Many of the major credit cards (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) usually provide some coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Madison. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does National require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
National requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Madison. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to National?
We recommend a full tank 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 return the car to National.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Madison has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to see what else Wisconsin has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Madison.
Does National offer one-way rentals in Madison?
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at another location. However, there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
