What you need to know about car rentals in Rockford
How do I find the best deals on a Rockford National car rental?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest price, whether you reserve your vehicle. However, getting your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my car in Rockford?
Make sure to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Rockford's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Rockford require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review National's policy to determine if there is an additional cost for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Rockford?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Rockford. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have more room for everyone's bags and offer a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Rockford vacation can choose a higher-end vehicle like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from National 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, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can book 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. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Rockford. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my National car rental?
We suggest a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with the needle at "F". However, if you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to National.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Rockford has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to find out what else Illinois has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits after you've checked off all the activities in Rockford.
Does Rockford National offer one-way car rentals?
National usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to return your rental at a different location. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
