What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Venice?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Venice. Compact or economy cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. If you are traveling with family or friends, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a little extravagance on their vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Italy?
In Italy you do need to have insurance before you rent from National. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide.

Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my National car rental?

Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to National?
We recommend a full to full policy. You receive the vehicle topped off. If you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, 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.

Venice definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.

National typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at another National. Don't forget there is typically an additional fee when you pick one-way.
