Make sure to carry with you your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Yamagata?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Yamagata is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to review National's policies to find out if there is an additional cost before you book.
What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip to Yamagata?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Yamagata. Economy or compact vehicles are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or a sedan is going to have enough room for all of you and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their vacation can choose a higher-end model like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Japan?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from National in Japan. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions.

What is the fuel policy on my National car rental?
We encourage a full to full policy. You pick up your National rental with full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to find a gas station before you bring your car back to National. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
