What you need to know before you go
How do I get the best rates on a Norfolk National car rental?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best rates, no matter when you reserve your car. However, booking your car ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need to bring when I pick up my rental car in Norfolk?
You'll need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Norfolk's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Norfolk 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 review National's policies to find out if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Norfolk?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Norfolk. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and good for short commutes. Commute times in Norfolk are around 25 minutes, so you may find a mid-size vehicle or SUV more comfortable. Or if you want to keep your emissions down, then choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Norfolk getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many of the major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) typically cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs.
