Frequently asked questions

Make sure to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Sendai?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Sendai is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check National's policies to determine what the total cost is for you.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Sendai?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Sendai. Compact or economy automobiles are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or a sedan will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little luxury on their getaway can choose the premium category for a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Japan?
In Japan you do need to have insurance before you rent from National. Although many of the major card issuers, like American Express or MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage with 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 vehicle for your trip to Sendai. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my National car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You should get your car topped off. If you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to National. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Sendai definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from National?
National usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at another location. However, there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
