What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get the best rates on a Townsville National car rental?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best price, whether you book. However, getting well ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to check the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What should I carry with me when I get my rental car in Townsville?
You will need to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Townsville's minimum age to rent a car?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Townsville is 21. Take time to go over National's policies, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals in particular.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Townsville?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Townsville. Compact or economy cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a mid-size or SUV is going to have more room and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a touch of extravagance on their Townsville getaway can choose a higher-end vehicle like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Australia?
In Australia you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many major credit card issuers (American Express, Visa, MasterCard and Discover) usually cover your car rental. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering larger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Townsville. Otherwise, as a United States citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my National car rental?
National requires a deposit when you book your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Townsville. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
We recommend a full tank policy. You should get into your car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to National.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Townsville 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 Townsville?
National usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at a different location. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
