How do I get a Springfield National car rental at a great rate?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you reserve your car. But getting your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to read the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What do I need have with me when I pick up my car rental in Springfield?
Be sure to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's the minimum age to rent a car in Springfield?
Most suppliers in Springfield require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review National's policies to know what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Springfield?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Springfield. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and great for short drives. Commute times in Springfield average 25 minutes, so you may find a SUV or mid-size car more comfortable. If you want to lower your emissions and save on gas, then opt for a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Springfield trip can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Cadillac or Audi 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 of the major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) generally offer coverage. But many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. Be sure to call your credit card company and find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Springfield. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can book 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 book your car for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the car.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
We advise a full tank policy. You should get your automobile 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 fill up your tank before you bring it back to National. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Springfield?
Springfield has plenty to keep you entertained, but you may want to drive to nearby cities to find out what else Illinois has to offer. You can explore the rest of the area free of mileage limits once you've gone out downtown or gone out downtown. If you are hoping to add a dash fun to your Springfield trip, you can also drive to Knight's Action Park & Caribbean Water Adventure and enjoy a night taking on the park's attractions.
