Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Napier National car rental at a great rate?
We strive to get you the lowest rates, whether you book. But booking well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Make sure to check the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I carry with me when I get my car in Napier?
You will need to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Napier's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Napier 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 before you book.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Napier?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Napier. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a mid-size or SUV will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does New Zealand require car insurance?
In New Zealand you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from National. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my National car rental?
National requires a deposit when you book your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to National?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You receive the car with full tank, and you should return it with a full tank of gas. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to National. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Napier certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from National?
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.
