What you need to know for the road
How do I find the best deals on an Orlando National rental car?
We strive to get you the lowest price, whether you book. However, booking ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What do I need to bring when I pick up my car rental in Orlando?
Make sure to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Orlando's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Orlando require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Make sure to check National's policy, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars in particular.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Orlando?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Orlando. Economy or compact cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. Commute times in Orlando average 25 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car provides a more comfortable ride. If you want to lower your emissions and save on gas, then choose a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Orlando vacation can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from National in the United States. Many major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) typically cover your car rental. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Orlando. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can book 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. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending 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 to full 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. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before you bring the car back to National.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Orlando?
Orlando has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out what else Florida has to offer.
