What you need to know for the road
How do I get a Puerto Vallarta National car rental at a great rate?
We strive to get you the lowest price, no matter when you book. However, booking ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What do I need to bring when I get my vehicle in Puerto Vallarta?
You will need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Puerto Vallarta's minimum age to rent a car?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Puerto Vallarta is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to check National's policies to know what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Puerto Vallarta?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Puerto Vallarta. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Puerto Vallarta getaway can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Mexico?
In Mexico you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. You can buy additional insurance through National, if you are concerned your insurance won't cover you while traveling through Mexico. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does National require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
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 to Puerto Vallarta. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
We advise a full to full policy. You pick up your National rental with full tank, and you should bring it back it topped off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you bring the car back to National. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Puerto Vallarta certainly 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 usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at another National. However, there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
