What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get a Sacramento National car rental at a great price?
We strive to get you the lowest price, no matter when you book. However, getting ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to go over the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car in Sacramento?
You will need to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Sacramento's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Sacramento set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Make sure to check National's policy, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals especially.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Sacramento?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Sacramento. Economy or compact vehicles are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, 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 little luxury on their Sacramento getaway can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class 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 in the United States. Many major credit cards (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) typically cover your car rental. But many of them have limitations, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Be sure to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Sacramento. Otherwise, as a U.S. 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 book your vehicle for your trip to Sacramento. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to National?
We encourage a full tank policy. You should get into your car 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 gas station before you return the car to National.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Sacramento?
Sacramento has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to head to nearby cities to find out what else California has to offer. You can explore the rest of the region free of mileage limits once you've gone out downtown or had a night out in downtown Sacramento. If you want to add even more excitement on your Sacramento getaway, you can check out one of the two theme parks in the area. Embrace your thrill-seeking side, or take the clan to Funderland Park or Scandia Family Fun Center.
Does National offer one-way rentals in Sacramento?
National usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at a different location. However, there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
