What you need to know before you go
How do I get the best deals on a Newark National car rental?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you reserve your car. But booking ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my vehicle in Newark?
You'll need to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Newark's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Newark set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check National's policy to know if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Newark?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Newark. Economy or compact cars are ideal for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Newark trip can choose a higher-end category like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in the United States. Many of the major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) usually offer coverage. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Newark. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does National require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
National does require a deposit when you book your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Newark. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your National rental with the needle at "F". If you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to National. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Newark?
Newark has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to see what else New Jersey has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits once you've had an evening out in downtown Newark or checked off all the activities in Newark.
Can I get a one-way rental from National?
National usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental at another location. However, there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
