Vehicles from National Perugia Airport are available directly from their rental counters at the Airport, or from their website, at Customers who have access to the Internet mostly prefer to make their travel arrangements online, as it is a quick and simple process, from the comfort of their own homes. An advanced booking is often recommended as well, in order to ensure the availability of the car you need. It is also wise to reserve any additional equipment in advance as they are subject to availability. Extra equipment may include child car seats, or a satellite navigation system. It may be necessary to specify the age of your child when booking a seat, as a smaller baby seat is used for infants, and booster seats are more suitable for older children.

National’s vehicles are arranged in various car categories, and are booked by these categories, not by specific make and model. This means that customers may not receive the exact example vehicle shown on National’s website, but will receive a vehicle with similar characteristics. The indicated luggage and passenger capacities can be used as a general guideline when selecting the right size of car for your requirements. National’s smaller vehicles include the examples of the Fiat Panda Dynamic 1.2 and the Ford Fiesta Titanium 1.2. These vehicles are found in the Economy category, and are ideal for driving in the city, or for shorter excursions. They don’t however have much room for luggage, and therefore families often hire a larger vehicle. Compact vehicles are also similar in size to those in the Economy category.

They are often a popular choice for families. The various cars in these categories have some nice features as well, such as air conditioning, air bags and radio/cassette players. All vehicles in the Fullsize category have an automatic transmission, and are quite popular options for customers who enjoy an easier drive. Intermediate vehicles include the VW Nuovo Passat Comfortline 1.9, and there are also Intermediate Wagons available, such as the Fiat Croma Dynamic MJT 1.9. The Mercedes B 200 CDI 2.0 is a Midsize Specialty vehicle, while the Mercedes C220 CDI Elegance 2.2 is a Fullsize option.

National, at their Perugia Airport rental location, requires their primary renter to be at least 21 years of age, and to have a valid drivers license. Residents from the United Kingdom should bring both parts of their license, and other foreign renters may be required to have an International Driving Permit. Younger renters at National, between the ages of 21 and 25, may be charged a slightly higher rental rate due to additional ‘young drivers insurance’. This is a customary procedure followed by most car hire companies. Renters should have a major credit card to pay for the rental, such as American Express, Diners Club, Eurocard, MasterCard or Visa.
