What's Wilmington's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Wilmington set the minimum age to rent a car at 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Take time to read through National's policies to determine if there is an additional cost for you.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Wilmington?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Wilmington. Economy or compact cars are good for short commutes and are easier to park. Commute times in Wilmington average 25 minutes, so you may find a mid-size vehicle or SUV provides a more comfortable ride. If you want to decrease your emissions and save on gas, then pick a hybrid vehicle. Those looking for a little luxury on their Wilmington trip can choose the premium category to get a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in the United States?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent from National. Many major credit card issuers (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover) typically cover your car rental. However, many of them have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like trucks or SUVs.

What is the fuel policy on my National car rental?
We suggest a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to National.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Wilmington's small-town atmosphere certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Wilmington.

National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your rental car at another location. Be aware there is typically an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
