Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best rates on a Vancouver National rental car?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. However, booking well ahead of your trip can help keep spending low. Make sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need to bring when I get my car in Vancouver?
You will need to present credit card, as well as your driver's license.
What's Vancouver's minimum age to rent a car?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Vancouver is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check National's policy to determine what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Vancouver?
That depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Vancouver. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a bit of luxury on their Vancouver trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Does Canada require car insurance?
In Canada you do need to have insurance before you rent from National. 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 larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States 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 car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with a full tank. But, if you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to National.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Vancouver certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities in Vancouver.
Can I get a one-way rental from National?
National typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental at a different National. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
