Returning the vehicle to a location other than the one indicated on your rental agreement will incur a separate charge.

Option 1: Prepay Fuel
This option allows the renter to pay for the full tank of gas at the time of rental and return the tank empty. No refunds will be issued for unused gas.
Option 2: We Refill
This option allows the renter to pay National at the end of the rental for gas used but not replace. Price per litre will be higher than local fuel prices.
Option 3: You Refill
This option allows the renter to return the vehicle with a full tank of gas to avoid extra fuel charges.
Loss Damage Waiver (LDW) is not insurance. The purchase of LDW is optional and not required in order to rent a vehicle.
You may purchase optional LDW for an additional fee. If you purchase LDW we agree, subject to the actions that invalidate LDW listed on the rental agreement, to contractually waive your responsibility for all or part of the cost of damage to, loss or theft of, the vehicle. DW does not apply to damage occurring in Mexico.
When deciding whether or not to purchase DW, you may wish to check with your insurance representative or credit card company to determine whether, in the event of damage to, or theft of, vehicle, you have coverage or protection for such damage or theft and the amount of your deductible or out-of-pocket risk.
