How do I find the best deals on a Thompson National car rental?

Do I need to bring anything special when I get my rental car in Thompson?
You will need to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Thompson?

Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Thompson?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Thompson. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Thompson trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Canada?
In Canada you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from National. Many of the major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) usually cover your car rental. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs.

Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
We suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your National rental with full tank, and you should bring it back it with a full tank of gas. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to National. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Thompson certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
