Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best prices on a Vila Real National car rental?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best price, no matter when you reserve your car. But getting ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What do I need to bring when I pick up my car in Vila Real?
Be sure to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Vila Real?
Most suppliers in Vila Real set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to go over National's policies to find out what the total cost is before you book.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Vila Real?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Vila Real. Compact or economy automobiles 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 will have more room and offer a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their vacation can choose the premium category for a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Portugal?
In Portugal you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from National. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my National car rental?
National requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit may vary greatly depending on the model and make of the car.
What is the fuel policy on my National car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full to full policy. You pick up your National rental topped off. If you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to National. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Vila Real certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Can I get a one-way rental from National?
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it more convenient to return your rental car at another location. However, there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
