Frequently asked questions

How do I get the best deals on a Santa Ana National rental car?

We try to get you the best rates, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. But booking ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.

Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my rental car in Santa Ana?

You will need to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.

What's Santa Ana's minimum age to rent a car?

Most suppliers in Santa Ana require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Take time to review National's policy, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category rentals especially.

What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Santa Ana?

That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Santa Ana. Compact or economy automobiles are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Santa Ana trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class 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 from National. Many major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) usually offer coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Santa Ana. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.

Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my National car rental?

National requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip to Santa Ana. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the vehicle.

Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?

We recommend a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to keep your expenses lower, 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 Santa Ana?

Santa Ana has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to see what else California has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits once you've checked off all the activities in Santa Ana.

Does National offer one-way rentals in Santa Ana?

National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at a different National. Don't forget there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
