Frequently asked questions
How do I get the best prices on a Yellowknife National car rental?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest price, whether you book. However, booking your car ahead of your visit can help you save even more. Be sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I bring with me when I get my car in Yellowknife?
You'll need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Yellowknife?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Yellowknife is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check National's policies to determine what the total cost is before you book.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Yellowknife?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Yellowknife. Economy or compact vehicles are easier to park and great for short drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size car or SUV will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride on longer trips. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Yellowknife getaway can choose a higher-end car model like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Is insurance required when you rent a car in Canada?
In Canada you do need to have insurance before you rent a car from National. Many of the major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa and MasterCard) typically provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Yellowknife. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my National car rental?
National does require a deposit when you reserve your rental. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Yellowknife. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
At CarRentals.com, we recommend a full tank policy. You receive the car with a full tank. But, if you return your rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to National. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Yellowknife definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit 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. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
