Frequently asked questions

Do I need to bring anything special when I pick up my vehicle in Sydney?
Be sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Sydney?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Sydney is 21. Take time to review National's policy, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals in particular.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Sydney?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Sydney. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a mid-size vehicle or SUV will have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Sydney getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Australia?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from National in Australia. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does National require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
National requires a deposit when you book your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip to Sydney. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the vehicle.
What is the fuel policy on my National car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You receive the 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.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Sydney?
Sydney certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does National offer one-way rentals in Sydney?
National usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at a different National. However, there may be an additional charge when you pick one-way.
