You will need to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Roanoke's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Roanoke set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to read through National's policies to find out what the total cost is for you.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Roanoke?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Roanoke. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and great for short commutes. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or a sedan will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Roanoke trip can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase 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 reserve your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip to Roanoke. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly based 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 to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank. However, if you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. 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 airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Roanoke?
Roanoke has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out what else Virginia has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Roanoke.
Can I get a one-way rental from National?
National typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at another National. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you pick one-way.
