What you need to know before you go
How do I find the best prices on a Reno National car rental?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the lowest price, whether you book. However, booking your car ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Reno?
Make sure to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Reno's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Reno set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check National's policies to find out if there is an additional cost before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Reno?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Reno. Economy or compact cars are good for short drives and are easier to park. Commute times in Reno are close to 29 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car more comfortable. If you want to decrease your emissions and save on gas, then opt for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a little luxury on their Reno trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) typically cover your car rental. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Reno. Otherwise, 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 requires a deposit when you book your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your rental for your trip to Reno. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
We recommend a full to full policy. You should get your vehicle with the needle at "F". However, if you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to National. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Reno has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to see what else Nevada has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Reno.

National typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental car at another location. However, there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
