Frequently asked questions

What do I need to bring when I pick up my car rental in Richmond?
Be sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Richmond's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Richmond 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. Take time to go over National's policy to know if there is an additional cost for you.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Richmond?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Richmond. Economy or compact automobiles are ideal for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Richmond trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Cadillac or Audi 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 from National. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

National requires a deposit when you book your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my National car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your National rental with full tank, and you should return it topped off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to National. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
