What you need to know before you go
How do I get a Maitland National rental car at a great price?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. However, reserving ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car rental in Maitland?
You will need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Maitland's minimum age to rent a car?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Maitland is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to read through National's policies to determine if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Maitland?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Maitland. Economy or compact automobiles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have more room and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Maitland trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Australia?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from National in Australia. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my National car rental?
National requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
We recommend a full tank policy. You pick up your National rental 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 your car back to National. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Maitland definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Maitland National offer one-way car rentals?
National typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at a different National. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
