National Car Rental at Bergamo
National Bergamo Airport
Bergamo Airport is also known as Orio al Serio Airport, and is one of the three major international airports of Milan. The terminal building is equipped to handle millions of passengers every year, and is filled with all the amenities they require, including a wide choice of car hire companies. National Car Hire is one of the popular companies offering quality vehicles for hire at the airport, and their car rental counters are situated in the arrivals area. National is often chosen as a car hire company for their excellent customer service and competitive prices. Hertz, Sixt, Avis, Alamo, Budget and Easycar are among the other car rental companies at Bergamo Airport.
Customers can hire a vehicle directly from National’s rental counters at the airport, or they could make an advanced reservation from National’s website, at www.nationalcar.com. Their website offers plenty of information about their rental procedures and policies, as well as pictures of example vehicles in all their car categories. National’s vehicles are controlled, booked and priced according to these categories, therefore customers will choose a category when renting a vehicle rather than a specific make and model of vehicle. Along with the car categories, National shows the average seating and luggage capacities of each category, and these should only be used as a general guideline, as each car is different according to its manufacture.
There are eleven car categories available from National, Bergamo Airport, including Economy, Compact, Intermediate, Midsize Specialty, Fullsize, Premium and Minivan. Economy category vehicles are quite a popular rental choice, as they are offered with low rates, and are very light on fuel. They are also smaller cars which are easy to drive in city traffic, and easy to park in small spaces! They don’t however have much space for luggage, therefore longer distance traveling may require a slightly larger vehicle. They are an ideal size for a single traveler, a couple, or a small family. Examples of vehicles in this category are the Fiat Panda Dynamic 1.2 and Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.2. Compact vehicles are of a similar size to those in the Economy category, but vehicles in the Compact Wagon category have a bit more room for luggage, such as the Fiat Stilo SW Active 1.9 JTD 120cv.
Vehicles which seat up to five people can be hired from the Intermediate, Midsize Specialty and Fullsize categories. These vehicles generally store up to two large luggage items and two smaller items, and include the VW Nuova Passat Comfortline 1.9, Mercedes B 200 CDI 2.0 and Mercedes C220 CDI Elegance 2.2. There are also estate vehicles available in the categories of Intermediate Wagon and Fullsize Wagon. The Mercedes C220 CDI Elegance SW 2.2 is an example vehicle from the Fullsize Wagon category, and this car can easily store up to four large luggage items and two smaller items.
Premium vehicles are those best suited for prestigious business functions, or formal private gatherings, as they have more style, class and elegance than the ordinary rented car. Business travelers arriving at Bergamo Airport may find this car category to be their ideal choice. National offers the Mercedes E280 CDI Avangarde 2.8 as an example vehicle in this category. National also caters for those customers who require a larger vehicle. The Minivan category features the Fiat Ulyesses Dynamic 2.0, which is a vehicle which can seat up to seven people, and the Fiat Ducato Panorama 2.8 is an example vehicle in the Van category that can seat up to nine passengers. These are excellent vehicles for road trips, as they have spacious and comfortable interiors, and strong engines for high performance.
With all these vehicles and many more, customers are guaranteed to find the perfect transport solution for their travel requirements. Besides all their quality vehicles offered for hire, National is a popular choice of rental company because they are an internationally recognized brand, and together with Europcar, form the world’s largest car rental network. National was founded in 1947, and over the years formulated many innovative programs and services in the car rental industry, including Emerald Club, which was the first comprehensive frequent-renter program to be introduced by a car hire company. Members of Emerald Club enjoy many benefits when renting from National, such as being able to bypass the rental counters and receive e-receipts. Car Choice allows customers to quickly and easily select their vehicles without any paperwork, and simply drive away.
Other services offered by National, at Bergamo Airport, include one-way hires, where customers can collect their vehicle from one location, but return it to another, and longer term rentals, with contracts from three to six months. All rentals at National have an age restriction of 21 years of age, and the primary renter should also have a valid drivers license which has been held for at least a year in his country of residence, and a major credit card which will be used to pay for the rental. Younger drivers between the ages of 21 and 25 may pay a higher rental rate, and may not be permitted to rent from certain vehicle categories. Additional drivers may be added to your rental agreement from National, and these individuals should meet the same requirements as the primary renter.
