What you need to know before you go

We try to get you the best price, no matter when you reserve your vehicle. But booking your car well ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and check the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What should I bring with me when I get my car rental in Thunder Bay?
Be sure to bring credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Thunder Bay?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Thunder Bay is 21. Take time to read through National's policies, as there may be additional fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles in particular.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Thunder Bay?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Thunder Bay. Economy or compact cars are great for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Thunder Bay getaway can choose a higher-end vehicle 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 from National. Many of the major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) typically offer coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. It is best to find out exactly what your credit card will cover and how much before you head to Thunder Bay. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through 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 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 return my National rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You should receive your car with the needle at "F". If you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, 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 return the car to National. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Thunder Bay?
Thunder Bay certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Thunder Bay.
Does Thunder Bay National offer one-way car rentals?
National typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at another location. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you pick one-way.
