Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best rates on an Osaka National car rental?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best price, no matter when you book. But booking your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my vehicle in Osaka?
You'll need to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Osaka?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Osaka is 21. 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 what the total cost is before you book.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Osaka?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Osaka. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room and offer a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little extravagance on their vacation can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Japan?
In Japan you do need to have insurance before you rent. Many major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) typically cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs.

National does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my National car rental?
We suggest a full to full policy. You should get into your vehicle with full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to National. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Osaka?
Osaka definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities in Osaka.
Can I get a one-way rental from National?
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental car at a different location. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
