What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get a Rochester National car rental at a great rate?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. However, reserving ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to not add an additional driver and read the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I carry with me when I get my rental car in Rochester?
You'll need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Rochester?
Most suppliers in Rochester set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review National's policy to find out if there is an additional cost for you.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Rochester?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Rochester. Economy or compact cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or a sedan will have more room for luggage and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of luxury on their Rochester vacation can choose a higher-end category like an Audi A4 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 card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) typically cover your car rental. But many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Rochester. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can add on 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 car for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly based on the make and model of the vehicle.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to National?
We suggest a full tank policy. You pick up your National rental with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you bring your car back to National.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Rochester has lots to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to see what else Minnesota has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Rochester.
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 fee when you opt for one-way.
