National Car Rentals in Truro: What you need to know
There are so many neighborhoods in New Glasgow that are worth exploring, you'll want your own vehicle to check out all there is to do around the area. Local buses, while cheap, drop you off far from where you wanted to go. Ridesharing, like Uber or Lyft, can be convenient, but you may be surprised by which areas don't have service. Additionally, if you plan to go all over Truro and the surrounding areas, the cost can add up.
If you want convenience at a great rate, then you're in the right place. Founded by 24 independent rental car agents in 1947, National has grown from 60 locations in the U.S. to over 2,000 international locations. National offers everything economy to luxury cars, allowing you to pick the ideal car for your next getaway.

Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Canada?
When driving in Truro or the rest of country, you will need insurance. National requires that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. The majority of countries require the driver to have insurance. You might be able to buy additional insurance through National for your trip, if you think your insurance won't cover your rental.
Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, provide some insurance, 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 National's policy before you decide.
Do I need to put down a deposit on my National car rental?
National, like many other rental car companies, requires a deposit upon reservation. The deposit can vary greatly depending on which vehicle you book. Additionally, be sure you have enough available on your credit card to put down the deposit.
Do I have to fill up the tank before I take my car back to National?
National and most other rental car companies provide you a full to full tank policy. We encourage bringing the car back filled up. For a cheaper rate, fill up your tank before you bring your car back to National.
Do I need unlimited miles when I rent a car in Truro?
The majority of suppliers offer unlimited miles, but you need to ensure it's part of your package. It's helpful to know how much you want to drive so you can plan your trip in advance. Although most rental car companies offer unlimited mileage, if it isn't part of your rental agreement, those miles can pile up—and so can the extra cost. You may want to have unlimited miles if you are planning to explore all that is in New Glasgow.
