What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Phuket?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Phuket. Compact or economy vehicles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their getaway can choose a higher-end category like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Thailand?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from National in Thailand. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

National requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip to Phuket. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full tank policy. You should get your automobile with full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank. To avoid any added expenses, 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?
Phuket definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from National?
National typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at another location. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
