Frequently asked questions

We strive to get you the best rates, whether you reserve your vehicle. But reserving ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I have with me when I get my rental car in Providence?
Make sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Providence's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Providence require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. 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 determine if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Providence?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Providence. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV will have more room and be a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Providence getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from National. Many major credit cards (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) generally cover your car rental. However, many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Providence. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my National car rental?
National does require a deposit when you book your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to National.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Providence has enough to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out what else Rhode Island has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Providence.
Can I get a one-way rental from National?
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at another National. However, there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
