Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Swakopmund National car rental at a great price?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best price, whether you reserve your car. But getting your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Make sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What should I have with me when I pick up my vehicle in Swakopmund?
You'll need to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Swakopmund?
Most suppliers in Swakopmund require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check National's policies to find out if there is an additional cost for you.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Swakopmund?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Swakopmund. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV will have more room for everyone's suitcases and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Namibia?
In Namibia you do need to have insurance before you rent from National. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my National car rental?
National does require a deposit when you reserve your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the car.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to National?
At CarRentals.com, we encourage a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with the needle at "F". If you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. 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 or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Swakopmund definitely has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Swakopmund.
Does National offer one-way rentals in Swakopmund?
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to drop off your vehicle at a different National. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
